Make writing software work for you! This live, interactive demonstration aims to teach writers everything they need to know to get up and running with the Scrivener writing software. After covering the basics, our session will be dedicated to learning the advanced features of the program that make it such a valuable resource. Plenty of time will be allotted for questions and guidance (via screen share).

To help provide financial accessibility to our class offerings, some classes each quarter are offered with a sliding-scale tuition model, allowing students to pay what they can for the class. For these classes, tuition increments starting at $5 and going up to 125% of the standard pricing will be listed on the page.
