Cost: $150 for non-members (which includes a one-year SCN membership); $95 for dues-paying Story Circle Network members. The registration fee covers the cost of instruction, lunch, coffee/tea, & handout materials.
Enrollment is limited so that we can allow all participants time to share. Please register early via our online enrollment form.
Registration/Payment Deadline: Saturday, October 26. We must receive your registration and payment by this date!
SCHOLARSHIP for FOOD! We are offering a full scholarship to this event for someone good at organizing, who will be asked to bring snacks, set up the coffee and snack table, call in lunch orders, and pick the lunches up. The cost of food and beverages will be covered by Story Circle Network. This person will miss part of the session just before lunch and will need to arrive half an hour early to set up and stay after for half an hour to oversee the cleanup. Interested? Please email us at wfl at storycircle dot org.
Refund/Cancellation Policy: We will refund your registration fee, less a $20 cancellation charge, if you request it up to 15 days before the workshop. After that date, we will refund your fee only if we are able to fill your space from our waiting list. We reserve the right to cancel the workshop; if so, we will refund your full registration fee.

Bring two pens, lots of paper, at least two family pictures.
Leave your laptop at home. (Some people are bothered by the clicking of keys in a quiet writing period.)
Bring a sweater or shawl to ward off drafts.
We provide coffee & tea. We also provide lunch. If you want morning &/or afternoon snack or other drinks (such as colas), please bring them.
Leave your prepared writing at home. We read & share only what we write in the workshop.
