    About the Sliding Scale Fees

    Writopia Lab is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that operates with limited resources, relying heavily on support from the community to sustain our programs — over 95% of our funding comes from the community in the form of these workshop and membership fees. Because we know there are families who cannot pay the full fee, we have created a sliding-scale for our fees. While we don't require supporting documents to demonstrate your financial hardship, we do ask that families pay as much as they can afford to pay; this is what enables us to offer our workshops to families in more difficult financial situations.

    Writopia Lab's fees cover the expenses of running a workshop program and allow us to provide generous scholarships and flexible sliding scale fees. We will not be able to offer honor-based sliding scale discounts to those in need if those who can afford the fee choose to pay a discounted amount. If you wish to support Writopia Lab, please make a donation to help families afford our services.

     

    Cancellation Policy

    If a child withdraws two weeks (or more) prior to the workshop start date, payment can be credited toward a future workshop at no cost, or refunded with a $50 cancellation fee. If withdrawal is requested within two weeks of the workshop start date, the same policy applies, as long as we are able to fill the spot. However, if we are unable to fill the spot, we cannot refund or credit the workshop. Missed days can be made up during another week in the summer, provided that there is space available.
