The 2004 Clarion class at Archives Book Store:
Back Row: Dr. Phil (Hmm, must be Canada Day, 1 July 2004), John Schoffstall MD, Lister Matheson (Director), Peter Burtis, Arnn Hixon, Charles Schoenfeld, Author Andy Duncan (Week 4 Instructor), Al Bogdan.
Middle Row: Tenea D. Johnson, Rebecca K. Rowe, Nikki Kimberling, Boris Layupan, Brynna Ramin, Grace Dugan, Marjorie M. Liu, Njihia Mbitira, Sarah Gibbons (Assistant to the Director & Mistress of the Copy Machine Without Which There'd Be No Critiques).
Front Row: Gordon Van Gelder (Editor, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction), Trent Hergenrader, Owner of Archives Book Store, Mary Sheridan (V.I.P.), Amelia Beamer, Andy Wolverton, Eric Joel Bresin.
In fact, I think it would be interesting to have a panel at Detcon 1 on "The Clarion Class of 2004 Ten Years Out". New writers might benefit about hearing both successes and "failures" in our writing careers. Also, Clarion 2004 was one of the last Clarion workshops held in Michigan, before MSU decided to cut funding, which forced the move to San Diego.
Anybody else think this is a good idea? Yay? Nay? Raspberries?
If nothing else, I'd love to see y'all. Who knows? I might be able to find out by then if the place nearby that claims to do Chicago stuffed pizza is any good. (grin)
