Registration Policy


Registration for courses is easy, just click the Register! button located in the Registration column to the right of each course description. We accept all major credit cards and use PayPal to process your payment so it’s also safe and secure.

We ask that all students register for their selected courses at least two weeks before the start of classes.

Tiered Pricing:

In order to better meet your budget we have three levels of course tuition: General, Educator (for faculty of K-12, colleges, and universities), and Student/Senior (for currently enrolled college students or seniors). Just select your tuition level in the Registration column of the course you are registering for.

Please note: For Educator and Student level tuition you must also email a scan of your current faculty or student ID to: laura[at]chicagoschoolofpoetics[dot]com.


If you need to cancel your course registration after having already paid your registration fees we ask that you make your cancellation request in writing to laura[at]chicagoschoolofpoetics[dot]com no later than 2 weeks before the start date of the scheduled course for a full refund of your registration fees. Unfortunately we are unable to issue a refund if your cancellation request arrives later than 2 weeks before the start of the scheduled course.

Please note: In the event there are not enough students to run a particular course the Chicago School of Poetics may cancel that course. If your scheduled course was cancelled the School will issue a refund of your registration fees.
