I’ve been sent word that I can publicly announce the news I’ve been sitting on since last week: I have been accepted into the 2010 Clarion Workshop.

More later, after the celebration has ended.

Congratulations, Adam! I was staring at your comments on the CW forum and trying to divine whether or not you'd gotten a "yes" and were just being quiet.

I suppose they're being prudent with the 'keep your hat on about acceptances' thing, but that sort of thing always feels uncomfortable to me. Our year, I remember having our mailing list together, and everyone mailing back and forth about who they were and who excited we were to go, and some people still on the message board going, "Hey, I could still get an acceptance!" And we knew they couldn't, but we couldn't say anything. Bleah.

I knew two days before I saw the first news of rejections going out, and two friends of mine were among those waiting for their news. It was extraordinarily uncomfortable. I went through a bit of survivors guilt -- excited that I got in and deeply sad that my friends did not.

Ha, I just realized you got into C-SD, not CW.

Oh yeah. :D I've stalked and stalked and I've heard no news about Clarion West.

(If you get into both, do you know where you're headed?)

That is a very difficult question for me to answer. Part of me hopes that I don't accepted for Clarion West, just so I don't have to answer it. Both workshops have an awesome line up of instructors. For me, the question I'd be asking is "Which group would push me the hardest?" because that's what it's all about, right?

On the off chance that you are interested in my opinion--ping me at rachel dot swirsky at gmail dot com and I'll be happy to tell you more about my experiences.
