Refund and Cancellation Policy

Refund and Cancellation Policy

Decatur Writers Studio classes are for writers 18 years of age and older, and our teen programs are for writers between the ages of 11 and 18. 

Waiting Lists

Our workshops often sell out quickly, so we recommend registering as soon as possible. We process all registrations on a first-come, first-served basis.

Once a workshop is full, it is listed as "SOLD OUT" on our website.

If you’d like to be put on a waitlist for a sold-out class, please email and put WAITLIST in the subject line of the email. In the body of the email, list the class you want to be waitlisted for and include a phone number.

Credit & Refund Policy

If you withdraw from a class…

  • 6 business days or more before the day class starts, you will receive a credit or refund, less 15%.
  • 5 business days or less before the day class starts, you will receive a credit minus 30%.
  • On the day class starts or later, you will receive no refund or credit.
