Refund Policy


Cascade Writers workshop registration fees are non-refundable, but are transferrable. For all workshops except the three-day critique workshop, registration fees are transferrable up to one week prior to the start of the workshop.

For our Critique Workshop, registration fees are transferrable up to two months prior. 

Attendance for our Critique Workshops: The collaborative nature of Milford style critique sessions requires the interactive participation of all members of the critique circle. This is a core element of the workshop, and the absence of any participant detracts from everyone’s experience. If you are unable to attend, failure to notify registration at least two months prior to the event will result in forfeiture of your registration with no refund or credit. Exceptions to this policy due to medical or life-changing events will be considered by the Board on a case-by-case basis. 

Critique Submissions: Workshop leaders and instructors reserve the right to refuse a manuscript if the participant fails to adhere to instructions including format and length. Email reminders regarding deadlines and other instructions will be sent ahead of time, but the participant is responsible for following those instructions and meeting required deadlines.
