While I'm gone -- think about applying to Clarion West!
Clarion West has an amazing line up of instructors this year: Mary Rosenblum, Hiromi Goto, George R.R. Martin, Connie Willis, Kelly Link and Gavin Grant, and Chuck Palahniuk!
I got to go a few years ago, and it was life changing for me -- I feel it directly lead to me writing publishable fiction. Six weeks of time is a lot to get off -- it's from June 17th - July 27th -- but during that time you'll be immersed. Plus -- GRRM! ;)
And there's a discount on applications for the next few days -- applications received by midnight Pacific Time on Friday, February 10, will be discounted to $30. The full fee for applying is $40. All applications for this year’s session must be received by the final deadline of midnight on Thursday, March 1.

See y'all in a week! :D :D :D
