Other important information
- Register early! We will be in close contact with you about when you can expect to have confirmation.
- After you register, you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail and be asked to submit a writing sample to email@example.com. 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.
- Bring 6 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 six copies of that extra work as well.
- Cancellation policy: 75% refund if cancelled three weeks prior to starting date. After that, no refund.
