The Writer’s Center follows the lead of the federal government in delayed openings and closures due to severe inclement weather. Workshop participants can check www.opm.gov/ status for the daily government status. If the government announces a two hour delay, all morning workshops and rentals beginning before 11 AM will be canceled. In the event of a government closure, all workshops and rentals, including evening sessions, will be canceled. Workshop leaders will schedule a make-up class with their participants, typically running the following week after the scheduled end date of the workshop. Rentals can be rescheduled once the office is reopened. If hazardous weather develops during the day while the office is open and evening workshops must be canceled, all workshop participants and leaders will be notified by email. The website and social media pages will also be updated.
