Clarion West Writers Workshop is a nonprofit literary organization based in Seattle, Washington, with a mission to improve speculative fiction by providing high quality education to writers at the start of their careers. As an extension of its primary mission, Clarion West also makes speculative fiction available to the public by presenting readings and other events that bring writers and readers together.

Every year, hundreds of writers commit to a summer tradition: to spend six weeks working on their writing goals while supporting Clarion West.  I will be writing a short story a week for the 6-week duration of the workshop — the same goal that each workshop participant must achieve.

Clarion West made a tremendous difference in my life when I attended over 20 years ago.  Please help me give something back by sponsoring my participation in the 2014 Write-a-Thon.  Go to my Write-a-Thon profile page and click “Sponsor Daniel Marcus.”

All sponsors of my 2014 Write-a-Thon goals will receive a digital copy of my short story collection, Binding Energy, described by Salon.com as “a cross between Raymond Carver and William Gibson.”
