Join us Saturday, April 18 for a power-packed training workshop!
Michelle Murray and Lori Sinclair will present:
- Tips & Tricks for Word Documents
- How to Prepare Your Submission for Inspire Forgiveness
- And Scrivener Basics for Writers
Most writers use Word to create their manuscripts and many of us have no idea how to properly format a Word document to improve it’s content, appearance and likelihood of publication. Michelle and Lori will teach us all we need to know in this hands-on workshop. Be sure to bring your laptop or tablet.
Once they’ve formed a foundation of formatting fundamentals, Lori and Michelle will focus on the specifics of formatting and preparing your submission for the 2015 Inspire Forgiveness anthology. Our popular anthologies are written exclusively by Inspire members. To eliminate many common reasons for rejection, come and learn how to meet the editors’ expectations. (Hint: Michelle Murray is the Anthology Coordinator and oversees the anthology editorial team.)
Have you discovered Scrivener? It’s a powerful tool to help writers create and organize their work. It’s especially designed for use with novels and screenplays, but can also help you organize a nonfiction book. Our speakers will give you an overview of Scrivener and enough information to help you get started using it. If you haven’t tried it yet, you can download a free trial of Scrivener here.
