Clarion and Clarion West are just about the best writing workshops on the planet: floating above all others like cirrus clouds. (Yes, maybe I am biased. Clarion is where I met Kelley. Kelley is now the Board Chair of Clarion West. We're invested.) Octavia Butler was a brilliant sf and fantasy writer. (That's just unvarnished truth.) The combination is absolutely worth your attention. But you have to hurry. Your chance to enter ends Monday 22nd November. The drawing is on Tuesday 23rd. You can buy as many tickets as you like. One dollar? Worth a flutter. Ten dollars? Ten times better. Twenty dollars? Now you're talking.
