Workshop “Scrivener - The Tool that has Changed My Life”
The writing process can be daunting at times because it requires overcoming psychological barriers. However, there are tools that can help us come along. The webinar focuses on one of them - Scrivener , a word-processing program for authors. We will address the classic stages of the composing process, from planning to editing, and share ideas on how this process can be facilitated – with or without technology. The speaker will explain why discovering Scrivener has become a game changer for her and brought joy to the writing process. The practical part of the session is devoted to getting to know the tool. Disclaimer: the speaker does not advertise the program, but spreads the word voluntarily because she believes her experience might be helpful to other academics.
