Please speak to a member of our registrations staff if you require clarification.


*The Writers Institute Refund Policy

Please note that because enrollment in most workshops is limited to 15 students, we must have ample time to seek and register a replacement should you be forced to cancel your attendance to the Writers Institute. For that reason, the deadline to cancel your registration for any workshop or lecture and receive a full refund is October 22, 2014. After that date, we will not be able to offer any refunds.
