Chris Crawford

A Crash Course in Scrivener

Scrivener is widely regarded as the best tool for writers of fiction and nonfiction prose. However, it is not intuitive for most people, and can be intimidating to the non-technical or novice. This session will help you get up and running, taking you from starting a new project to compiling it for e-book and manuscript copy.


This is an interactive course. Although not required, you’ll get the most value by bringing your own laptop to follow along with the provided materials. If you don’t own a copy of Scrivener, you can download the 30-day free trial beforehand.

If you bring your laptop and will need power, please bring a powerstrip or a multi-plug extention cord so there will be power available to anyone who needs it.
