ProWritingAid 101

Founder and CEO of ProWritingAid, Chris Banks, will walk you through the ProWritingAid web editor to help you get up and running. See how key features like the Summary Report, Real-Time Checking, and Word Explorer can help you improve your craft. The session will finish with a live Q&A.

Chris Banks is an expert on creativity and language technologies. He started ProWritingAid to help with his own writing, but he soon saw how useful it was for everyone else. Now, he wants to help more people put their ideas into words and those words into the hands (and hearts) of readers.

ProWritingAid 101 happens on the first Tuesday of every month.

August 3, 2021 2:00 PM EST / 7:00 PM UK

August Topic: Converting Your Fan-Fiction

On the second Tuesday of every month, the ProWritingAid community is invited to bring all their questions to our favorite Book Doctor, Sally O-J.

What is a Book Doctor? A book doctor works alongside the author, looking at everything from plot and characterization to writing technique, dialogue, and texture. If you're wondering how to turn your manuscript from a labor of love into a bestseller, a book doctor's diagnosis might be what you're missing.

Each webinar will be based around a topic and Sally will provide practical advice and training before opening up for questions from attendees.
