Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How do you conduct your online creative writing workshops?
Our online courses run for seven days. At the beginning of the first day of class, you'll receive your course's Google Classroom code. Upon joining the class, you'll find all the coursework in the form of text lectures and writing exercises, which you will accomplish at your own pace within the seven-day duration. Your assigned writing coach will give you feedback on your work as needed. If you meet the deadline, you'll receive a PDF certificate the following week.
After your seven-day class, you'll have 28 days to submit the draft or outline of a story (2,500 words maximum) for a complimentary story consultation.
For more details, please read about our Online Learning Experience at Storywriting School.
How do I register for a class?
First, determine which course you want to take. You'll find our course offerings in our Catalog. Then, choose the Class Week when you'd like to take your class. We have eight Class Weeks per quarter.
Which writing course should I take first?
The simple answer is: after reading the course descriptions, take the course that piques your interest or excites you. Our course descriptions are all in our Catalog.
None of our courses are prerequisites to the other. As long as you fulfill the minimum age stated on the course page, you may take that course. There's just one caveat: we don't recommend any course from the Skills Series as a first course. You'll have a greater appreciation of the Skill Series if you've already taken any of the Niche or Storywriting Basics courses. But if you register for the Skills Series despite not having taken any other course, we won't stop you; we've had a few students who took the Skills Series as a first course and they loved it anyway.
What's the difference between a Solo Class and a Group Class?
Our coursework is meant to be taken individually. Whether you're in a Solo Class or a Group Class, you'll have the course material upon joining and you'll work at your own schedule. Your writing coach will give you one-on-one feedback. Either way, the experience of a Storywriting School online course is a highly personal one.
However, in a Group Class, there will be more interaction in the Stream of the Google Classroom on the same week of the class. The Q&A will also be recorded the week after the Group Class, so your questions will be answered more promptly if you're part of one. If you take a Solo Class, you'll also experience these, but after your seven-day Class Week is over. Depending on your course and Class Week, that gap could be anywhere from one week to a whole quarter.
Lastly, Group Classes are cheaper that Solo Classes. You can think of Group Classes as the "sale week" for the course.
How much do your online writing courses cost?
Standard Rate: US$80.00/PH₱4,200.00
Group Rate: US$70.00/PH₱3,600.00
Your class fee must be fully paid before the start of class. Minors, full-time students, employed or licensed teachers, homeschooling parents, persons with disabilities, and senior citizens are automatically given a 20% scholarship after submitting documents at registration.
Why are your course fees cheaper compared to most other writing workshops?
We believe that everyone can learn to write stories, whether or not you'd like to pursue writing as a profession. We don't want to confine our courses to those who expect to earn from it. Hence, we've priced our courses to accommodate those who write for the love of it.
What does the course fee cover?
1. Online coursework (text lectures and writing exercises)
2. Personal coaching (specific to course content and objectives)
3. Certificate of completion in PDF (assuming all coursework is finished by the deadline)
4. Story consultation (2,500 words maximum, submitted within 28 days after the end of the class week)
How do I pay?
We accept payments primarily through three channels:
online payment processing through PayPal - You may pay using a credit card (no PayPal account necessary) or through your PayPal wallet.
bank deposit - You may deposit or transfer your payment to our BPI or BDO account.
GCash - You may pay through a GCash transfer or through any of the many cash-in options supported by GCash.
After you register, you'll be given the link to our payment page, which has our online payment buttons and our bank details.
Do you provide discounts?
We provide an automatic 20% scholarship for minors (below 18 years old), enrolled full-time students, employed or licensed teachers, homeschooling parents, persons with disabilities, and senior citizens. In the registration form, you'll be asked if the student being enrolled falls under any of the above categories, and then to provide a photo or scan of a document that proves such.
What if paid but in the end, I can't make it?
Unless otherwise stated,* course payments are non-refundable. You may transfer your registration to a schedule that's within one calendar year of your original registration.
