A better way to learn Scrivener
I’m excited to share my new Scrivener training platform with you (thanks, LA)! I’ve been offering online courses—as well as workshops and private training—since 2011, and I’m always looking for ways to make that process easier and more fun. With, I think I’ve done it.
So what’s new?
  •  You don’t have to wait for a scheduled course anymore. Now you can sign up and get started whenever you’re ready.

  • 60 days of Q&A with me. :-) Each course includes all of the lessons, plus unlimited Q&A on the student forum for 60 days. (That’s about 40 days more than my old classes got.)
  • Videos! I expanded my popular step-by-step course material, broke it down into easier-to-digest chunks with lots of screenshots, and added short videos to reinforce the concepts for those who learn best visually.

  • Every section comes with a downloadable review sheet. I took notes so you don’t
    have to. ;-)
  • Every page shows your progress through the course, and displays a lesson outline so you can see what you’ve already done, and jump ahead or back as desired.
  • The site is easy to navigate and mobile friendly, so now you can work on the lessons from your smart phone or tablet.
  • Scrivener introductory courses for Mac and Windows are up now. The Intermediate/Advanced and Compile classes are coming before summer.
What are students saying? Here’s a sample:
“Whether you're a Scrivener newbie or you just have that nagging feeling that there's more to Scrivener than you've learned on your own, Scrivener I: Basics and Beyond is the place to start. I highly recommend it.” - Ed (Mac Intro course, March 2016)
“I had no idea what Scrivener can do...until I took Gwen's course. […] I'm feeling more confident about using the program, and I know Gwen's notes will get me out of a corner if I get lost or stuck.” - LynnK (Mac Intro course, March 2016)

  1. Hi Gwen, Welcome back.
    I've taken several of your courses and they really opened up Scrivener for me. While I haven't tried your new format, I'm anxious to see what it's all about. Thanks for offering the discount!!
    Hugs, LA

  2. Thanks, Leslie Ann! I appreciate you letting me share. :-)

  3. LA, Gwen, thank you for this opportunity. What a deal. I'm sharing this with some other writers. Cheers

  4. Gwen...Do you have an advanced course available? Also, is the platform for your courses

    1. Hi, Karen! My Intermediate/Advanced course should be ready in the next few weeks. I'll announce in my newsletter and on social media.
