Lyn Yeowart
In this lively and interactive course, you’ll be introduced to some of MS Word’s advanced features and learn how to use them to master your manuscript. Knowing how to use your writing tool effectively will increase your productivity, lower your frustration, and help you manage your document with confidence and competence. Plus you’ll be able to present publishers and agents with a professional manuscript.

This session will take place online over the course of two weekends, via Writers Victoria’s online platform.


You will learn:

  • How to save time and increase consistency by using paragraph styles

  • How to create chapter summaries and scene headings in your manuscript

  • How to view and manage your manuscript’s structure, characters, plot

  • How to hide and reveal chapter summaries and scene headings when viewing, printing, or sending to someone else

  • How to use some of Word’s other advanced tools and options to save time and take control.



  • First session: Saturday 28 May 2021, 10am - 1pm
  • Second session: Saturday 05 June 2021, 10am - 1pm


Bring Along:

  • Please bring a substantial piece of writing (with chapters) that you can use to put into practice your new skills as you learn them.
  • Please have it open and ready to use in Word when we begin each session.
