The Frances Pew Hayes Center for Lifelong Learning at Hodges University will host a free lecture for prospective writers on the many facets of Microsoft Word. The lecture will be held on October 25 from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. It will be held at the Hodges University Science and Technology building, 2655 Northbrooke Drive, just off I-75, in Naples.
Whether a writer sends a manuscript by snail mail or e-mail, editors prefer to work with Word documents. Though many writers know the basics about Word, including formatting a manuscript to comply with editorial guidelines, this course will deal with more of the detailed features of Word, such as track changes and One Note. In this hands-on workshop, participants will also receive Word tips, including formatting MSS for special requirements.
Conducting the class will be Lisa Wroble, a nationally published author with a range of freelance writing credits, from trade magazines to children’s books, poetry, greeting cards and magazines. She has accumulated a variety of experience working with adult learners through conference presentations, conducting workshops and hosting writing classes.
Those interested in attending will need to bring a flash drive/memory stick. Students should have basic computer skills. The class will be presented in Microsoft Word 2007.
The class is free of charge but reservations are required. For more information, please contact Christine Wheeler at (239) 598-6133.
