Scrivener Compile courses start December 8th!

Online course graphicHappy Thursday! I’m flying to California tomorrow to present a Scrivener workshop for the San Francisco Area Romance Writers of America chapter on Saturday. Wanna attend? Click here for more information.

Also, in case you’re not on my newsletter list, I just announced that my next round of Scrivener Master Course: Compile classes are open for registration. Yay! The classes start December 8th. Maybe an early holiday gift to yourself? 😉

Also, there’s still time to sign up for Scrivener II: Intermediate and Advanced Concepts (Mac & Windows), which starts Tuesday. (Oops! My newsletter had the day incorrectly listed as Monday. This is why writers have editors… *sigh*)

Anyway, here’s the lowdown on the Compile courses, and you can get more information on all of my class offerings on the Scrivener Courses page.

If you have a long holiday weekend—and even if you don’t—enjoy!

Do you love Scrivener, but get stuck when it comes to compiling (exporting) your work? This one-week compile course will cover everything you need to know to get your manuscript out of Scrivener and into a beautiful Word document, PDF, e-book, or print-on-demand file.

Topics include:

– Best practices for setting up your project file

– Handling front matter and back matter

– Understanding the different compile options and features

– Chapter auto-numbering, formatting, and saving compile presets

– Creating specific types of output: DOC/RTF, EPUB/MOBI, PDF for print-on-demand services

Format: The course is conducted in a virtual classroom, which allows me to post daily lessons in DOC and PDF for students to download, and provides a forum for asking/answering questions. The course also includes at least one video screencast where I answer student questions through an on-screen demonstration.

Prerequisites: Either have taken Scrivener I or II, or have a good grasp of the concepts in Scrivener I (see course description on class page).
