Scrivener for Beginners, with Don Lesser

Scrivener, by Literature and Latte, is a word processor designed for writers. It excels at working with a manuscript’s structure and content, as well as helping to organize research materials. It is currently in Version 3 for the Mac and Windows. It is, however, not especially intuitive and you can get lost in some of its more advanced features. In this class, we will demystify Scrivener’s main features—what Scrivener calls its binder, outliner and text editor—as well as the other features such as the scrapbook and corkboard. In addition, the class will cover tips and techniques for getting the most out of this amazing but sometimes intimidating tool! For Windows and Mac users of all levels.

This workshop will be held in-person. 

Saturday, October 22, 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. ($75)
