  • To ensure that I receive anything that you mail (application, check, writing sample or manuscript) please use Delivery Confirmation from the Post Office. You can track it online.
  • Remember, the application does not secure a spot at Wildacres, only a deposit does.
  • BALANCES: Your balance is due June 1. No exceptions.
  • REFUNDS: A $100 cancellation fee is charged through April 1st. From April 1st to June 5th there is a $175 cancellation fee. There will be no refunds after June 5th unless we can refill your spot. If you are not accepted, your entire deposit will be returned.
  • ACCEPTANCE LETTER: Your acceptance letter will contain a full schedule, a detailed map, what to wear & bring, and a reminder of balances, manuscripts, etc.
