Feb 28: Going Digital: A hands-on seminar about creating ebooks
I’m teaching a three-hour seminar course called Going Digital at the Indiana Writers Center in Broad Ripple on Saturday, February 28. In the class, you will learn how to take your Word document and create digital files for the Web, eReaders, and the Kindle. We’ll even take a bit of time to talk about how you can use these files once you’ve created them.
From the course description:
While print books remain the staple of the book publishing industry, writers now have a plethora of digital tools that allow them to easily create a variety of ebooks. The last barrier to entry: fear. In this hands-on seminar, participants will take their own writing (finished or not for our purposes) and learn how to use simple drag-and-drop software in order to create books in various formats (EPUB, Kindle files, web-based books, and even multi-media iPad files). No prerequisite skills required (really). If you feel comfortable surfing the Web, you’ll be just fine. Participants are expected to bring their own laptop, and have the ability to connect to our wireless network.
The course is $57 for non-members, $39 for members, and $33 for student members/teacher members/senior members/military members. You can sign up here.
