Service Description

Ready to pivot to retirement but not sure where to start? What will you do once you get there? Move? Play golf? Start a new hobby? Freelance? It's a big step. Using the AWA method in this proprietary 5-step workshop for retirement pivots, you'll leave this workshop with concrete actions on how you'll transition to a new life. One session/ 2 hours. Also available as a one-on-one class; contact me for details. We'll use an exclusive and effective workshop method that will help you explore your retirement pivot using your storytelling voice in a safe and nurturing environment. Class is limited to 12 people. Have a notebook and pen — or your laptop — ready to go. Be prepared for a video session, please. Feel free to log in 10 minutes early to say hello. You may want to read the FAQ section to familiarize yourself with the format or contact me with any questions. This workshop is led by Johanna Thompson, an Amherst Writers & Artists Affiliate, certified to lead workshops in the AWA method, as described in Writing Alone & With Others by Pat Schneider, Oxford University Press. You have a number of payment options. Currently, I accept all credit card payments through PayPal (you do not need a PayPal account). I also accept payments via QuickPay from Chase; those options are included in your sign-up process. You can also send a bank check upon booking (address is provided in the checkout process).

cancellation policy

For paid workshops: Each workshop has a limited number of people to ensure that everyone gets time to write, present their work, give feedback and truly develop their craft. Because of that, it's important that people commit to attending. Whether it's an 8-week workshop or a one-day retreat, it's important that we get a solid head count before starting. And for those signing up for a free workshop, please be courteous and notify me if you do not plan to attend so that we can make space for others. For paid workshops, there will be no refunds after two weeks prior to the workshops, unless you find someone to take your place. If you meet those requirements, a full refund will be issued, less a $15 processing fee. No partial refunds will be issued for missed sessions. For paid consultations/appointments: Clients can reschedule up to 3 days in advance of our meeting. Bookings must be paid for before the session begins, unless a different agreement has been made by both parties. No refunds will be issued for missed appointments.
