About This Class

Whether you’re an experience user of a previous version of Scrivener, new to version 3 of Scrivener, or you just want to hone your writing skills, this class is for you.

In this class you’ll learn how to be more productive in Scrivener, making Scrivener work for you not feeling it's working against you. We’ll cover everything from learning what styles are and understanding how Scrivener implements them, to completely customizing styles for your specific requirements to make the time you spend in Scrivener not only more effective but a complete joy!

You'll finally be able to stop fighting the formatting and concentrate on your content.

Here's exactly what you get:

- A series of videos containing concise, straight to the point, instructions of how to make styles work for you in transforming how you work in the Scrivener editor

- Download of a Scrivener file containing all the styles created in this course

- Download of a style library for you to customize for your own work

- BONUS: Invitation to exclusive AMA sessions

As a class project, you’ll use my template to create your very own style library for your next project to make formatting your work faster than ever before.

While this course assumes no prior detailed knowledge of Scrivener a passing familiarity with the interface and function of the app would be beneficial.

It is a very concise and useful video! Thank you! By the way, do you have a plan to make a video on how to compile, especially making a custom template?
This is very clear and concise. The teacher has a great voice - not too fast to understand, not so slow that your mind tries to finish the sentence. Her presentation is thought - out, concise and visually simple so you can focus on her concepts.

Bringing Stories to Life

Pleasant to listen to and covers topic in depth. Looking forward to future courses. The Scrivener Manual itself shows how to import a particular style group from one Project to another, but creating a Style Library is her idea as far as I can tell. Extras like that make me look forward to what else she will come up with in future courses.. :)
