PPW Workshops draw from a wide range of writing-related topics, including the craft of writing, the business of writing, writing tools, and The Writer’s Life. Workshops are typically half-day or full-day, and provide high quality instruction at a reasonable price.
Half Day Workshop:
Scrivener is Not Word
So, why would you treat it like it is?
Scrivener is a robust writing project software, but a lot of people still treat it like a simple word processor. In this workshop, you’ll learn how Scrivener is different and the tools and tips to revolutionize your writing process.
In the first 30-45 minutes, learn how to navigate Scrivener’s Project Structure and setup new projects followed by a 15 minute Q&A. For the remainder of the class, we’ll delve deeper and look at how to setup custom templates, outline a novel quickly and easily, use the View Modes, Compile / Export your work for publishing, and most importantly, how Scrivener is not Word and treating it like it is will only end in tears and hours of lost time for you.
