Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
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 accomodate those who write for the love of it.
We've done this by 1) giving lower prices to those who commit by paying ahead of the course date; 2) removing frills that are not necessary to the learning process (e.g. catered food, handouts); and 3) partnering with venues that support our mission. Through these steps, we're able to keep the quality of our courses high despite the affordable fees.
What does the course fee cover?
Normally, the course fee covers instruction, a certificate, and one story consultation through email within thirty (30) days of your course.
We generally do not provide food because we hold our courses in areas where there are many establishments to choose from. If the workshop is held in partnership with an F&B establishment, we may opt to include food and drinks in the course fee.
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 your cash payment to our BPI or BDO account.
Coins.ph - You may pay through a 7-Eleven branch, an M Lhuillier branch, or your Coins.ph wallet.
After you register, you'll be given the link to our payment page, which has our online payment buttons and our bank details. If you indicated #3 as your preferred payment channel in the registration form, we'll send you a Coins.ph payment request. Please note that Coins.ph adds a service charge depending on the total amount. You'll see amount in the payment request.
We also have venue partners who opt to receive cash payments on our behalf. If the venue partner accepts workshop payments, it will be indicated on our marketing materials.
Why are there two prices indicated as the course fee?
We generally indicate two prices for each course, like this:
₱3,600 (₱3,000 if paid on or before May 12)*
The first is the walk-in rate, while the second is the pre-registration rate. To avail of the pre-registration rate, you must pay the day prior to the first day of the course or earlier. Any course payments made on the day itself will use the walk-in rate.
Why is the course fee lower for those who pay ahead of the course date?
We'd like to reward those who commit to a seat in our courses. In the past, we've had people reserve a seat but fail to show up, depriving other potential students the chance to join our workshops. We want to discourage this practice by charging a lower pre-registration rate.
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 ahead but in the end, I can't make it?
Unless otherwise stated,* course payments are non-refundable. Advanced payments for live (face-to-face) classes are transferable to the concurrent or most proximate online class schedule for the same course.
*Bundles/promos are typically non-refundable AND non-transferable.
