Writers SA reserves the right to cancel any course or event up to two days prior to its advertised date, due to lack of bookings or presenter cancellation. If we cannot reschedule, or if you are unable to attend on the amended date, you will be offered a workshop credit. Please contact us to confirm that your event will go ahead before booking travel or accommodation.
Credits and Refunds
Writers SA does not offer refunds if you cannot attend a course or event. You are eligible for a full credit to put towards any other workshop, member service or membership renewal if you notify us at least 24 hours before the workshop.
Credits are valid for 3 months from date of issue, and can only be used for our workshop program. They are non-transferable, and cannot be used for membership or other services.
In line with the Writers SA COVID-19 policy, you are required to produce a valid vaccination certificate or medical exemption at the start of an in-person workshop or event. No credits or refunds will be offered if you are unable to do so.
Specialist Program Credits (first draft, manuscript incubator and memoir academy)
There will be a maximum of two credit-holders at each event until a minimum number of paid participants is reached and will be on a first-come-first-served basis after emailing [email protected] to lodge your request. If the workshop is at capacity for credit-holders, you can opt to pay for the workshop or join a wait-list until the event reaches the minimum number of paid participants.
Gift vouchers are non-refundable, non-transferable and are not redeemable for cash. The voucher can be used for workshops, masterclasses, events or memberships.
In the unlikely occasion of a cancellation of a workshop that has been purchased by a voucher, the voucher amount will be reinstated. Gift vouchers are valid for three years from the date of purchase.
Goods and Services Tax (GST)
All prices are displayed in Australian dollars and GST is included on all books and products, including workshops, seminars and masterclasses.
Please note: The price of some products and services may be subject to change.
