Join fellow SCWBI South East Scotland member Caroline Deacon, as she leads us through some of the features of this amazing writing software. Attendees will be shown how it can help with plotting, personal organisation, handling a large document effectively and even editing. It’s ideal for self-publishing too!

You don’t need to know anything about Scrivener to benefit from this workshop, but it will probably help if you download Scrivener before hand (free trial details below) and have a play about with it just to get used to it, though this is not essential.

It is available for Windows, Mac and Linux. You have 30 days to try it – and those are not consecutive days, which means that if you only open the software once a month, your free trial will last nearly three years. If you decide to go ahead and buy, you then get a code to enter in order to keep the software functioning, and everything you’ve done during those thirty days will still be there.

It would be easier to have the software already installed for the event – here’s the link for a free trial, there is an easy-to-follow tutorial which also includes contact details for Literature and Latte if you’re having any issues with the install. You can use the software on more than one device, but if you have – say Mac and Windows – you will need to buy two lots of software (there is also a version from the Ap store for iPad, but this does not have all the features of the other platforms). If you have any other questions about Scrivener please contact Caroline on our Facebook page or e-mail, before the event.

If you’d like to attend but don’t want to download Scrivener, please let us know so we can make sure you’re paired with someone who has access to it. The event is 2 1/2 hours long – please bring your charger lead with you if your device wont last that long. If your lead isn’t long, please bring an extension lead as we are limited to electrical points.

This event will be held in the George Washington Brown Room at Central Library.

SCBWI MEMBERS – although the event is free, we will ask for a small contribution towards room hire. Please reserve your place now by completing the form below.

NON-SCBWI MEMBERS – please contact to reserve your place. A charge of £5 is to be paid on the day.
