How many students are in a class?
Our classes are small (8-12 students for Creative Fiction classes) to insure each writer and his/her work receives personal attention and time enough to share with the group during each session. We offer twelve seats in each class with a waiting list.
During the session, how many times will I have a chance to submit for critique?
In all 8-week and 4-week workshops, each participant has the opportunity to share a short piece of their new work aloud in each session. Each student has the opportunity to have up to 25 double-spaced pages critiqued in written form once by the instructor and/or students.
What does the workshop fee include?
The opportunity to have work critiqued aloud in session.
The opportunity to submit work for thorough typed feedback from the instructor and all your classmates.
A private conference with the instructor to discuss your workshop feedback, your goals for your writing, or other writing-related topics.
Where do classes meet?
Most of our classes meet in the instructor’s home or a local business willing to host our groups. The small class size and cozy atmosphere create an intimate experience and safe environment for our participants to create. Typically, there will be coffee served. If you're lucky, maybe even dessert.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept checks made out to The Tinderbox Writers Workshop. We also accept credit card payment through Square.
I’ve paid my registration fee, what’s next?
One to two weeks before the start date you’ll receive a welcome email with directions to the class location.
Are refunds available?
Because your registration guarantees you a spot in a limited-capacity class, you must let us know at least 5 days before the beginning of your course start date to receive a full refund. If you choose to cancel between 5 and 2 days before the start of a course we can provide you with future credit for an upcoming course of your choice. If you would prefer a refund during this time, there will be a $50 cancellation fee. Once there is fewer than 2 days left, before the start of a course, we can no longer issue refunds. For cancellations please Contact Us here.
Do you offer online classes?
Not at this time, although we are considering doing so in the future.
