Nebula Birthplace or Refiner's Fire

Thread for the discussion of the Clarion workshops, online critique groups, or Heidi Kneale's interviews with these several authors.

The article is here.

An intriguing article. I think that discussions of workshops are incomplete without a nod to James Gunn's two-week writer's workshop at the University of Kansas:

Two weeks- just enough time to really get into the zone, but not so much that your life is out of whack for the next year. Nice university, nice town. I went in '03 and wanted to go in '04 and '05, but didn't make it. Actually, I did go to the concurrent writers' retreat in 2004 (check it out here: http://www.ku.edu/~sfcenter/writers-retreat.htm).

It seems disingenuous for Robert Hoge to promote Clarion South with the claim of "a Nebula winner from the 2005 class!" Ellen Klages was indeed a Clarion South 2005 participant, but her recent Nebula win was for a novelette published in F&SF in May 2003. Clarion South didn't have much to do with that.

Hmmm. That's interesting... I don't think the two NA Clarions would accept a Nebula award winner as a student. A teacher, maybe.

She didn't win the Nebula until after she attended Clarion, but still. It was just a couple of months after.
