Our adult courses help fund our programs for kids, many of which are tuition-free, and allow us to pay our adult writing instructors for their time. We offer payment plans to all of our students and scholarships to those demonstrating financial need.
Austin Bat Cave is committed to providing access to high-quality writing workshops for everyone.
We now offer the ability to pay for classes in monthly installments. Please browse our class selections for more details.
A limited number of seats in each class are reserved for scholarships. Scholarships cover 100 precent of tuition-fees, and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.
We especially encourage BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ writers to apply, though all are welcome. We do not ask for financial information or outside documents.
