Computer Literacy for Writers

Robert S. King will teach a computer course at the Moss Memorial Library Saturday, July 28, at 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.- Hayesville, NC.

How many times have you suddenly had something go wrong or thought of a way you wanted to change something on the screen, but your computer just doesn't seem to cooperate with your wishes?
Learn some simple skills that will make your computer work for you and not against you. Robert King is a poet, writer, editor and publisher who can teach us these time-saving devices we have at our fingertips but don't know where or how to use them.


 Basic Computer Literacy for Writers

Many writers are hindered from accomplishing their work because they don't have sufficient computer skills to speed up their writing tasks. This course is designed to help writers learn elementary techniques related to writing.
 For example, learn how to turn off/on your word processing program's autocorrection features (such as forcing initial caps on each line of a poem); how to record a macro to play back (insert) repetitive text in your document; how to quickly look up a word's definition online and to have its pronunciation spoken to you;  how to use the Google search engine to find the information you need; and many other tips and tricks to make you a faster writer. As time permits, we will also address other issues that you personally wish to discuss.
