Writing with Scrivener (rescheduled)

Frost Library, Barker Room

Scrivener is writing software that facilitates flexible writing processes. This workshop will introduce writers to the software's relevant features and how they might help you write more often, revise and re-organize more easily, and manage your project with more agility and efficiency. Especially recommended for thesis writers, but open to all students. Students with no experience with Scrivener are welcome; those who are familiar with it are especially encouraged to attend and contribute to the discussion. Taught by Jessica Kem, senior writing associate. Please pre-register at the link below.
