About RWO Workshops

RWO conducts our workshops using the discussion forums located on this website.  We do not use email loops.  Discussion forums allow you to attend the class on your schedule without flooding your inbox with email.  Your workshop can downloaded and saved to your computer for archiving and reference. After your register for a workshop, we'll send you additional information about accessing our discussion forums.  It's easy!

Fees and Payments

RWO workshops cost only $15 for non-chapter members.  All authors are welcome to attend, whether or not you are a member of our organization. RWO members attend all workshops free as part of their chapter membership. No person will be allowed in unless payment is received. Purchase and payment is made through our store. 


A few days before the workshop begins, we will open a “Pre-Workshop Check-in” topic. When you visit our discussion forums here and log in, you’ll have access to that topic and can introduce yourself and become a little more familiar with our process. When the workshop instructor posts the first lesson, the workshop "classroom" will open. The topic will have the workshop’s name, and you can access it on our site by clicking on the workshop title. Instructors typically post lesson information a few times a week. You can visit the workshop at your convenience to read the lessons and participate in the discussion and homework. Before the workshop closes for workshop participants who are not members of RWO (typically one week after the end date), you'll have the opportunity to print or download the class topics for future reference.  For members, the workshop is archived in our online library.

Terms and Conditions

Payment must be received not later than 2 days prior to the workshop start date to be guaranteed admittance to the workshop. RWO will work with you in good faith if circumstances prevent your payment from being received in time for the workshop start date, but we are not obligated to grant access to the workshop if payment is not received. RWO is not responsible for technical or personal issues that may prevent your attendance from the workshop. Our workshops have been successfully used by computers operating both Windows and Mac OS and no user who has properly followed all instructions for accessing the website where the workshop is held has ever been unable to participate. When you submit a registration for a workshop, you agree that RWO is not obligated to refund your workshop fee if the money is received too late for the workshop or if you are unable to attend the workshop due to personal or computer-related issues.
