Please read this document carefully so that you follow the correct procedure for application.
Our workshop begins on Sunday afternoon, April 7, 2019, and concludes on Saturday morning, June 13, 2019. Students are expected to participate in the workshop from the very beginning until the very end.
Gary and Kathy will accept 14 writers.
Each application must contain a 1,500-word writing sample as well as a pitch / synopsis for his or her next project. Students do not need to be published to be considered for this program, but we are looking for committed writers. Gary and Kathy will read all the writing samples, and writers will be informed whether they have been accepted.
Tuition rates range from $2,525 - $2900. Because we are staying at a lodge, most students must share rooms. We have two double occupancy rooms and two quadruple occupancy rooms. There is one single, queen room.
Tuition covers workshops, food and lodging. Participants are responsible for travel costs.
There is a $250 US application fee. If applicants are not selected to join the workshop, we can either return the check or shred it. Tuition payments may be made in full, in two, three or four installments. Students must be paid in full by January 1, 2019.
- The $250 application fee is non-refundable once applicants are accepted.
- Before January 1, 2019, applicants may withdraw from the workshop with no additional penalty except the $250 non-refundable deposit.
- After January 1, 2019, tuition is 50% refundable, unless we can fill the spot from our wait list. If we can fill the spot, applicants will be refunded full tuition, minus $500 ($250 application fee and a $250 penalty for late withdrawal).
- After March 7, 2019, tuition is non-refundable, unless we can fill the spot from our wait list. If we can fill the spot, applicants will be refunded full tuition, minus $500 ($250 application fee and a $250 penalty for late withdrawal).
