Clarion West is the Seattle version of the original Clarion, the world-famous science fiction and fantasy writer's workshop. While not affiliated with the original, its aims and philosophy are much the same and it has fine authors as instructors. Clarion West lasts six weeks and is held annually in the summer. Critiques form the basis of the workshop, supplemented by teaching and individual conferences. Participant journals are on the web that show the diversity of experience, yet no one fails to be changed by the experience.

Instructors have included Octavia Butler, Greg Bear, Orson Scott Card, Vonda McIntyre, Pat Murphy, and Robert Silverberg.
