Microsoft Word for Writers focuses on teaching you the aspects of the Word program that are most useful for writers.
Lessons include: proper manuscript formatting, creating headers/footers, working with page numbers, creating a manuscript template, customizing the toolbars, understanding/ customizing the Auto-Correct feature, and using the Work menu or Recent Documents menu as a shortcut to work with multiple documents at the same time.
Other subjects that will be covered include: formatting the query letter, creating a query letter template, creating envelopes and SASE labels, using Track Changes to work with critique partners, and backing up your computer files. This workshop is geared toward both Windows and Macintosh users with any version of Microsoft Word between 1997 and 2013.
Pre-requisites: A copy of Microsoft Word and basic knowledge of how to open the program, create a file, save a file, print a file and type words on the screen (very BASIC Word commands); the lessons in the workshop will teach you how to use those MSWord commands related to novel writing in a step-by-step fashion.
