Classes & Workshops

We offer classes (several sessions) and workshops (one-time-only-meetings) in many genres including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, memoir and creative nonfiction, screen and playwriting for all levels of writers. We also offer classes in creative writing and courses in creativity and inspiration. Our instructors are experienced writers in the genre they teach and the class size is limited to ensure personal attention and lively interaction.

Class and Workshop Registration

Participant payments will secure a spot in the class or workshop. The minimum enrollment is typically 3-4 students, and a class may be cancelled if the minimum is not met. San Diego Writers, Ink reserves the right to cancel registration if check payment has not been received by this time. Students will be notified the day before if the minimum has not been met and a class will be cancelled, modified, or rescheduled.

PLEASE NOTE: Though we do allow walk-in registrants, to help our instructors prepare and ensure classes do not get cancelled, modified, or rescheduled, please register in advance.  We evaluate registration numbers three days before a class  to begin to decide about whether to keep a scheduled class.

Participant Cancellation Policy

Participants will receive a refund (minus $10 for processing fees) if notice of cancellation is received at least 72 hours prior to the start of the class or workshop.

If notice of cancellation is received within 72 hours of the start of the class or workshop, participants will receive 50% of the registration fee paid.

There will be no refunds issued for cancellations after the start of the class or workshop.

San Diego Writers, Ink Cancellation Policy

If the class or workshop is cancelled by San Diego Writers, Ink, 100% of the registration fee will be refunded.

San Diego Writers, Ink aims to provide a diverse range of classes and workshops and works to ensure classes and workshops are not cancelled.
