Scrivener Introduction Class

When: Thursday, January 21, 2016, 7-9 p.m.

Where: Tulinda Yoga Studio, 618 McGraw Street, Queen Anne

Have you tried Scrivener, the software for writers, but felt daunted by its features? Or have you just been hearing about it and would like to learn more? This two-hour class will cover all the basics, including author Jason Hough's personal tricks and tips. 

In class he'll cover the philosophy behind how Scrivener works (it is quite different from Word), outlining, creating a new project, compiling for different formats, and some tips to help you achieve success with large projects.

About Scrivener:
Scrivener is a powerful content-generation tool for writers that allows you to concentrate on composing and structuring long and difficult documents. While it gives you complete control of the formatting, its focus is on helping you get to the end of that awkward first draft.

Jason is not affiliated with Literature & Latte (the makers of Scrivener) in any way. Please note this class does not include the Scrivener software. At the link below you can find a trial version, but if you want to use the trial for the class, make sure you don't install it until the week before. Find out more or download Scrivener software here

Jason M. Hough (pronounced 'Huff') is the New York Times bestselling author of The Dire Earth Cycle and the near-future spy thriller Zero World. In a former life he was a 3D artist, animator, and game designer (Metal FatigueAliens vs. Predator: Extinction, and many others). He has also worked in the fields of high-performance cluster computing and machine learning.

He lives near Seattle, Washington with his wife, two young sons, and a dog named Missbuster.

What to bring:
Bring your laptop (with Scrivener installed if you'd like to follow along. Not required but helpful.)

    1. Allison, Sorry I did not get back to you. I did not receive notice of your comment until Jennie Shortridge sent it to me. Yes, I'm in conversation with Jason now to schedule a class. It doesn't look like it will happen until December. I hope to have more details soon. I have a class coming up with David Schrader and a few others that I'm about to announce.
