$10 – $20

The Headway Project started as an experiment in early 2023 and the experiment turned out to be a tremendous success.  These sessions are  2-hour workshops limited to just 4 participants and the facilitator.

As a participant, In the first hour you will be invited to write in Pomodoro-length stretches — 25 or 30 minutes. And as always, of course, you will be welcome to ignore the prompts altogether, and write self-directed work on the project that you’re there to work on.

The second hour we will read one of those just written pieces and offer the usual AWA strength’s based feedback on what’s already working.  


Testimonials for THE HEADWAY PROJECT

There was sufficient permission to ignore the prompt and keep writing. I found the questions useful even when I didn’t include them in the piece I was engaged with.

Participant, March 9, ‘23

The prompts were very helpful: open-ended in a way that revealed many different possibilities. The second prompt was offered in the form of a question and, being a question, encouraged me to reflect and focus in order to respond. Worked very well.

Participant, March 24, ‘23

I feel like I’d love to do more of this and yet it feels like the right amount of time to help me keep going on this project. It’s very encouraging.

Participant, April 20, ‘23

Can’t wait to do it again. It felt really good to read a bit of my story and get feedback. It was feeling like a long isolated process lately.

Participant, March 16, ‘23

The prompts were very helpful: open-ended in a way that revealed many different possibilities.

Participant, March 24, ‘23

Love the longer writing time and feedback time. It’s an ideal balance!
