Over at Facebook, the Bibliophile Stalker posted the workshop panelists at the 2012 Clarion West Writers' Workshop. It's very impressive (and if you look at the roster who have gone to CW (and have read their stories--which are everywhere) even more so). Cost is around $3200. And then there's the plane ticket (around a thousand dollars?) and living expenses. But there's a scholarship being offered by the Carl Brandon Society.
I wish someone could parcel out a scholarship that paid out in increments of time away from family. (How would that work, though? Interesting story in there somewhere.)
In any case, things always happen at the right time. Redjeuelle, a friend of mine now based in NY, seems interested. Good luck!
