long con workshops offer affordable access to the expertise, guidance, and insights of the established and emerging artists & authors we’ve published in long con magazine.

Workshops are conducted as Zoom meetings — but you don’t need a Zoom account to attend. Those new to the Zoom platform might want an introduction to joining a Zoom meeting

All workshop fees are split between workshop instructors and long con, with instructors receiving at least 50%. Fees retained by long con go toward our website costs and our Contributor Fund. Our cancellation and refund policy prioritizes instructor compensation.

Follow @longconmag for workshop announcements.

Workshop cancellations & refunds

We understand that life circumstances and schedules change. If you need to cancel your registration for a workshop, please email longconmag@gmail.com as soon as possible.

Here’s our easy-to-remember refund policy:

  • 10 days = 100%: If you cancel your registration with at least 10 days’ notice (from when the first session of the workshop begins), we’ll immediately refund your entire workshop fee. This notice gives us time to fill the vacancy.
  • 5 days = 50%: If you cancel your registration with at least 5 days’ notice (from when the first session of the workshop begins), we’ll immediately refund the long con portion (usually 50%) of your workshop fee. We’ll retain the instructor’s portion of the fee (usually 50%) to ensure they receive the compensation they’ve been counting on—but if we can fill the vacancy before the workshop begins, we’ll then refund you the remainder of the fee.
  • If you need to cancel your registration last-minute (with less than 5 days’ notice), we’ll do our best to fill the vacancy, which would enable us to refund your entire fee. (In this situation, it’s a win-win-win if you can connect us with a friend who’d like your spot!)
 
If long con or the workshop instructor needs to cancel or reschedule an entire workshop, for any reason, we’ll offer you a full refund.
