The Pro Series isn’t for everyone. You need to have a project under way, or at least a very clear idea of what you want to do. And you need to be fiercely dedicated to seeing it into print or on screen.
The first step is to work on your project. Spend time with it. Sketch out your concept. Think about it. Mull it over. Write. Scribble in the margins. Revise. And revise again.
Then, if you think the Pro Series could be for you, email us to set up an Inside Track appointment. This can be a physical or virtual appointment for up to an hour with Dr David Reiter or Lauren Daniels. The fee for this initial consultation is $195, and we give you a short report on your project’s strengths and weakness and a recommendation of where to go from there, including Pro Series workshops you might want to take. If you opt for a virtual appointment, after preliminary contact, you’ll need to email us the necessary material as a Word attachment.
The Inside Track consultation can either be the end of our contact with you, or the start of a program of professional development geared to producing a publishable work.
Our Pro Series workshop program is under development even as you read this. So you should bookmark this page and check back at the end of May for our schedule.
What we can do at this stage is give you an idea of what the initial workshop fees will be. Quick Start and Intermediate workshop full-day courses will cost AU$199, GST-inclusive. Half-day courses, AU$99. Two-hour sessions, AU$59. Master Classes, which have a maximum of six participants, cost AU$269 per day.
If this seems like a lot of money, remember that it costs a lot to engage expert tutors who are committed to the developmental aims of the Pro Series program, who will be more dedicated to your goals than their personal interests.
Mentorship fees are based on a minimum of 10 hours of the mentor’s time for a fee of AU$1100, GST-inclusive. Additional hours can be booked in blocks of five hours, for AU$495 per block. We offer a 15% discount to concession card holders.
Workshop fees are payable in advance by the deadline date. We offer a discount to concession card holders on a standby basis and confirm enrolments within a week before the workshop is scheduled to begin.
Mentorship fees are payable at AU$550 upon enrolment, with the balance upon completion of the first 10 hours. Subsequent blocks of five hours are payable in advance.
