The sorority house has been re-claimed for writers. A classroom set up, boxes of survival supplies moved in from storage, one instructor and two students have already arrived, two more students arrive today, and 14 on Saturday.

On Sunday, registration, orientation, then Paul Park's superb disorientation will start taking 18 writers apart so they can put their words and worlds and themselves back together bigger, stronger, more ready to shake up the world.

I attended the workshop myself in 1996 and have been an administrator since 2001, and still get butterflies in my stomach this time of year.

I will be joining them in their journey both as a native guide and a fellow traveller--I'm doing the Clarion West Write-a-thon again, as is a marvellous array of both well-known and as-yet-undiscovered writers, which you--yes you--can sponsor on their six-week journey. Please consider it. Not only will you be giving a writer a good challenge (accountability is a wonderful motivator) but you will also be helping the independent nonprofit organization that makes this happen every year.

Check out The Clarion West Write-a-thon, my page there or the San Diego Clarion's write-a-thon which starts a week after ours.
