Other important information
- Register early! We will be in close contact with you about when you can expect to have confirmation. (this is the first time we’re doing the Masterclass so we will be finding our way as we get closer!)
- After you register, you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail and be asked to submit a writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org. The sample should include the first two pages of text (single spaced), or up to the first 500 words. If you like you can include a synopsis/description of how you feel you need help, what your strengths are, weaknesses, etc.. We will take a close look at that as well.
- Works may not be accepted if the content falls outside the faculty area of expertise, or if the director feels the work and writer would not benefit from attending the workshop. You will be notified as soon as possible, with a full refund of registration fee, should your work not be approved.
- The submitted material will be used by faculty for individual meetings during conference and will not be returned nor should it be counted as one of the copies you should bring to workshop.
- Bring 5 copies of what you plan to work on at workshop. There may be time to work on more than one project so feel free to bring a second manuscript. You can also bring a whole manuscript with two or three areas to work on not forgetting to bring five copies of that extra work as well.
- Cancellation policy: 75% refund if cancelled three weeks prior to starting date. After that, no refund.
