Refund Policy


Cascade Writers workshop registration fees are non-refundable.

Cascade Writers is a non-profit organization that depends on our donors and registrants’ payments. We charge no more than what it costs us to pay our speakers’ hotel, food, airfare, the room rentals, and other essentials.

Exceptions may be made in the case of an emergency. In the event that a registrant needs to make a cancellation, please inform Cascade Writers immediately. If it is early enough to fill the spot, or if there is a participant on the waiting list, a refund may be possible, though there is no guarantee.

In the case of the participant’s failure to meet deadlines or follow a workshop instructor’s requests, or other non-compliance, refunds will not be possible. Workshop leaders and instructors reserve the right to refuse a manuscript if the participant fails to adhere to instructions. Email reminders in regards to deadlines and other instructions will be sent ahead of time, but the participant is responsible for following those instructions and meeting required deadlines.

In the case that a participant is unable to attend, and refund is not an option, we may be able to apply your fee to a future event.
