A Beginner’s Guide to Scrivener
Loads of writers love using Scrivener to compose, edit, organize their research, integrate notes, and publish. Bestselling, award-winning author and NorCal board member Eileen Rendahl leads a tour of Scrivener’s tools and features, for a look at how a not-so-computer-savvy author has made it work for her.

Your Author Newsletter, with Jane Friedman
With social media all over the place, the one thing authors can control, save, and build on is their newsletter. Jane Friedman, whose own newsletter The Hot Sheet is an industry standard, talks about how to get started, what works (and what doesn’t), and how to grow your numbers. For MWA NorCal members only. Register here for this Crowdcast event.
Noir From Your Own Bar
In conjunction with Litquake, another great group read of gritty (and not so gritty) writing, in a [virtual] bar, in San Francisco. What’s not to love?
