THE TRANSITION NETWORK (TTN) is an inclusive community of professional women, 50 and forward, whose changing life situations lead them to seek new connections, resources, and opportunities. TTN envisions life as a series of transitions, both professional:
• pursuing a new career path
• going back to school
• becoming an entrepreneur
• finding meaningful volunteer work
• shifting from an active parent to an empty-nester
• managing relationship changes
• care giving for elderly parents or a partner.
Through signature workshops, programs, and events, TTN women inspire and support each other as we continue a life of learning, engagement, and leadership. Many take part in cultural and educational activities in their respective locations.
TTN has 13 chapters around the country, many in major metropolitan areas, including New York City, Philadelphia and San Francisco.
Here in Chicago, we are focused on growing our city membership and having more events in the city accessible to both city and suburban residents. To learn more about TTN and to join click here: https://www.thetransitionnetwork.org/join/
We invite you to join us for our upcoming events which are posted on this Meet Up page and TTN's website. If you would like to get involved as a committee member in helping us build our chapter, please email us at: Chicagochapter@thetransitionnetwork.
We all have stories that deserve to be told. Memoir writing is the way to reflect on those events and experiences that have made you the unique person you are. It’s also a wonderful way to pass on life lessons and wisdom to those you love.
Nadine Kenney Johnstone, a Chicago-based memoirist and essayist, will lead this creative workshop. We’ll read published examples of truthful writing and learn how to write about ourselves and our life in ways that are honest and engaging. The session will include visualization exercises, in-class writing time and reflection.
Ms. Johnstone is the author of the memoir "Of This Much I'm Sure" and teaches at Loyola University. Her work has been featured in Chicago magazine, The Moth, PANK, and various anthologies, including "The Magic of Memoir."
Join us for a creative and enlightening experience. Space is limited.
