My No-Refund Policy
This is a nonrefundable investment in your writing. When you make this purchase, you are promising to explore and practice. You’ll be paying for it the way you would pay for a degree, an all-inclusive retreat, a counseling session, an art show, or a ticket on an overnight train. I know that online sales expectations are distinctly pro-refund, and I understand the reason for that. I considered it for this program. But after some thought, I realized that I didn’t feel right about offering a money back guarantee on a creative experience.
What will I guarantee? This is not a course about how to get published or write a book (though both of those may be the result). This is a program that offers must-have fiction writing techniques and the critical thrill that comes from identifying those techniques in action; it teaches you how to maintain a state of mind that conducts creativity; it promises that you and your writing will enjoy spending time together again.
Is that guarantee-able?
If I did offer a money back guarantee on the above promises, it would be on the condition that the writer first completes all of the practice exercises and assignments and writes a report on every reading in each of the seven lessons. This person must submit a portfolio of his/her work to be eligible for full refund. This is interesting, but what it actually means is… (see thought #3)
I want you to be fully committed to do the work that’s involved. And I want you to be sure that this is the right program for you before you pay me for it.
What it comes down to is this: if you’re the right person for the Story Course, you will know it. And if you are ready to commit to your writing in a deep, life-changing way, you will feel it. If those two aspects happen for you at the same time, you should go for it.
Having a no-refund policy makes it all the more powerful for you when you commit to your writing.
