We are very sad to say that due to circumstances beyond our control, we’ve had to pull out from teaching the last two weeks of the Clarion South workshop.
The stalwart organizers of Clarion South, Kate Eltham and Robert Hoge, didn’t blink (well, we were on the phone, so who could tell?) and within a day or two lined up two super-capable replacements, Trent Jamieson and Jeff VanderMeer, who will be teaching week 5 and week 6 respectively. We’re really going to miss out on the sun, sand, and short stories.
Also, congratulations to a couple of Australian writers: Margo Lanagan’s Tender Morsels is a Printz Honor Book and the winner of the award this year is Melina Marchetta’s Jellicoe Road—both of which are great, weird books. (And the latter of which was given to us by none other than Kate Eltham!)
