FREE 14-day Scrivener course

While the sun is shining and the kids are on their school holidays, thoughts drift to taking the plunge.

  • The local swimming pool.
  • A dip in the sea.
  • Starting to learn how to use Scrivener?

Learn how to use Scrivener in just fourteen days!

Starting TODAY, set aside 30-60 mins a day and, by 1 September, you’ll be using Scrivener with confidence.

And after that …

  • During September, you can refine some of your skills.
  • In October, you’ll put it to use, creating the outline for your next NaNo novel
  • In November, you’ll be writing that novel using Scrivener.

I’ve devised a 14-day Scrivener course which you are welcome to take at any time, or stretch over a longer period if that suits you better.

How much does the course cost?

This Scrivener course costs nothing, apart from your time.

You’ll be using these free resources:

  • Help menu | 14-day Scrivener courseLiterature & Latte video tutorials
    Literature and Latte provide video tutorials that last from 2 minutes to 10 minutes, each one covering a particular aspects of Scrivener. These are available – for free – on their website. You can also access these video tutorials via the Help menu in Scrivener.
    During the 14 days, you’ll watch many of these.
  • ScrivenerVirgin blog posts
    My blog shares my Scrivener journey. As I embraced each new Scrivener feature, I shared my progress via the blog. This resource now has hundreds of posts, and you’ll be reading some of these in the next fortnight. (To see the index of posts, click here.)
  • Simply Scrivener Specials
    I host a 60 minute Q&A on Tuesday evenings 7.30pm (UK time). This is your opportunity to ask any questions and have any feature of Scrivener explained in more detail. When you need answers, book a place at the next Simply Scrivener Special.
