TRY & APPLY PROCESS

Monthly & Yearly Memberships - 60 days to Try & Apply

We want you to be confident that hope*writers will work for you, so we offer a generous "Try & Apply" guarantee. You can get a refund if you put in the effort to try and apply hope*writers as defined by the steps below. You have up to 60 days after joining to request a refund.

If you have a refund request, email [email protected] with your request to cancel. You will be asked to complete a form to show us how you tried and applied. This is the ONLY way we will consider issuing a refund.

We don't want you to give up on your writing goals so this helps us see that you have made an honest investment of time and effort. Please Note: we are unable to give refunds for any other reasons (unforeseen circumstances or changing your mind).

Here are the specific steps you need to take as a member to show us you have tried and applied your membership:

  1. Take the quiz and know your writing stage. 
  2. Watch at least three Tuesday Teaching interviews either live or recorded.
  3. Read/watch and complete four articles or videos in your stage (not counting Tuesday Teachings).
  4. Connect with fellow hope*writers members in the following ways:
    • Join the Facebook group and write an intro post (if you have Facebook).
    • In the Facebook group, write at least five comments or posts of your own, including your intro post.
    • Create and activate your profile in the Membership Directory to find other hope*writers in your area.

To be considered for a refund, any items you might have received from hope*writers must be returned in full before a refund can be processed. For those with the 14-day trial, you will have the same 60 days to try and apply the content from the hope*writers library. If you do not want to be charged for the first month, you must cancel before the 14 days are up for your trial. 

Anyone requesting a refund will simply be asked to give an honest account of their effort in these areas. Thank you!
