2 Hours is All You Need to Transform Your Writing Process 

  • Are you frustrated with writing your book in Word and wish there was a way to easily move scenes around and allow you to experiment with your story?
  • Would you like a system to keep your writing ideas, notes, drafts and research materials all in one place?
  • Would you like to easily be able to see an overview or outline of your book?
  • If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, this course is for you!

Scrivener is a powerful and easy-to-use program that has become a must-have for authors and long-form writers all over the world. Whether you are writing an epic fantasy or non-fiction book, Scrivener is ideal because it has been custom-built for authors. Many authors will only write their manuscripts in Scrivener – instead of Word – because it’s so much easier to arrange information, move around chapters, develop characters and plot your work.

Does this sound like you? Perhaps you …

  • have heard of Scrivener but aren’t sure if it’s right for you
  • you’re worried it will take you as long to learn how to use Scrivener as it will to write a book
  • don’t want to waste your time and money on something that that might confuse you more than it helps you
  • have tried using Scrivener but find it overwhelming
  • aren’t sure which parts of Scrivener you need to understand to get the most out of the program
  • perhaps you feel as if you’re using only 5% of Scrivener’s power.

In this two-hour video course, you’ll learn how to use Scrivener so it can transform your writing process. Many authors find that once they understand how to use the program’s essential features, it helps their creativity flow. Sure, a computer program won’t write the novel for you! But it will make the process a whole lot easier. This course is all about showing you which parts of Scrivener are the most important for you to learn to make your writing process faster, more enjoyable and more efficient.

In this course, you’ll receive:

  • tips on how to become a faster, more efficient and more organised writer;
  • step by step video instructions at your fingertips;
  • downloadable worksheets with screenshots and written instructions;
  • demonstrations with an actual in-progress novel – no dummy text here!
  • and much more.

 

Scrivener

Who is this course for?

This course is for anyone that would like to streamline and organise their writing process. If you’re in the process of writing a novel, screenplay, or any other long-form creative work, this is for you.

What’s NOT covered?

This course focuses purely on the most important features you should use to streamline your writing. There is much, much more to the program, but this course will cover the essentials so you can get writing with confidence.

Do you need to purchase Scrivener to do the course?

The good news is that you can use the free trial version of Scrivener to do the course. The trial version has the full functionality of Scrivener and gives you 30 days of use. Or you can purchase it through these links:  Download Mac version | Download Windows version.

Do you teach with the Mac or Windows version of Scrivener?

Natasha uses Scrivener on a Mac so all of her videos feature Scrivener on a Mac. Therefore, Mac users are fully catered for in this course.

We still believe Windows users can get a lot out of the course. Many of the functions and menu items are the same across both versions. Also, because Natasha teaches you how a writer can use Scrivener to write a book, not just the technical functionality of the program, much of the course is relevant no matter which operating system you are using.

What if I’ve already started writing my book in Word?

In just a couple of minutes (or less!) you can easily import your Word document into Scrivener. One of the course videos shows you how to do this.

A full year’s access

You will receive a full year’s access to the course, allowing you to take advantage of any updates that occur during that time. And we reckon after 12 months you’ll be good friends with Scrivener – and you’ll have these two hours to thank!

Who is presenting this course?

Natasha Lester is the award-winning author of two novels, If I Should Lose You (2012) and What is Left Over, After (2010). Her third novel, A Kiss from Mr Fitzgerald, was the game changer. Fed up with using Word to keep everything organised, she decided to get familiar with Scrivener – and hasn’t looked back!

Knowing how much easier it is to learn with real-life examples, Natasha created 2 Hours to Scrivener Power using her work in progress novel.

In between writing novels and looking after her three children, Natasha blogs at whilethekidsaresleeping.wordpress.com and writes poems, short stories and essays, which have appeared in journals such as Overland and Wet Ink.

Graduate testimonials

  • "I found it really helpful to be able to stop the video, try it and then restart once I was confident that I understood the content. This course is a great resource to get you properly started on Scrivener. While Scrivener rocks, it takes some time to master. The videos and handouts are easy to work through and a great resource afterwards. The Australian Writers' Centre courses are excellent value for money. The mix of audios and online interaction, how they're stepped and staged makes them a great resource."

    - Pip Brennan

    "I was able to watch the tutorials on my iPad without worrying too much about fully absorbing the content, as it was an intensive course. I could then boot up the laptop a couple of weeks later, having imported some of my own material into Scrivener, and complete the course again. But this time I stopped after each video and working in Scrivener on my own projects. I found the convenience and flexibility of learning at my own pace very enjoyable. Before enrolling in this course I attempted to use Scrivener's tutorial and found it overwhelming. Natasha's take on it, from a writer's point of view, was perfect. Don't waste time phaffing about trying to figure out Scrivener on your own. Just do it!"

    - Anne Hayes

    "I just wanted to write and say how fantastic the 2 Hours to Scrivener Power course was. I finally got around to doing this course and it has changed my life. Natasha takes you through the basics of Scrivener and provides you with just the right amount of information to get you using this writing program efficiently immediately. She is a great teacher and presents her material in a clear way with just the right amount of details so that Scrivener is not overwhelming (which it can seem on first glance). Scrivener is a great way to organise your book material – your writing, your research, your scene cards, etc – and provides all the flexibility to enable you to restructure your story and plot lines as your story changes and develops. The research function and the ability to keep all your supporting research material in the one place is amazing. Thanks Natasha for sharing your enthusiasm for this truly amazing writing resource and how you use it in your writing practice. You have saved me a lot of time and reduced my frustration level immensely."
