CLASS: "Scrivener for Newbies: The Program Writers...

Presented by Writers' League of Texas at St. Edward's University

Want to make the most of the writing software designed to help organize your book-length manuscript?

When you first open Scrivener, you may feel like you’re sitting in a the cockpit of a jet plane, screaming, “Help!” Never fear–the basics of Scrivener are easy to learn and can transform how you approach a manuscript draft.

You’ve heard other writers rave about Scrivener, but…what are all those buttons? What is a “binder?” Do I have to “compile”? In this hands-on class, instructor Katherine Catmull—who has used Scrivener for nine years to write three novels, numerous plays, and many other large projects—will guide you through the basics of Scrivener. Participants will leave with everything they need to know to start using Scrivener for their own writing.
All students will need to bring a laptop with a copy of Scrivener installed (Scrivener offers a free 30-day trial, so no need to purchase it yet). Note: While the Windows and Mac versions of Scrivener have most of the same features, there are a few differences. The instructor will be using Scrivener for Mac.




Katherine Catmull is the author of three books, most recently the YA novel The Radiant Road. Her first book, Summer and Bird, was named one of Booklist’s 2012 Top Ten First Novels for Youth. She is one of four co-authors of The Cabinet of Curiosities, which was named one of the New York Public Library’s Best Books of 2014. Besides her decades as a stage actor in Austin, she also does voice acting for games like DC Universe Online (Oracle) and Wizard 101 (Myrella Windspar). She has also written numerous short plays.
