Writers Chat: Microsoft Word’s Secrets & Shortcuts

You read that right. Even the shortcuts you never knew were there!

Hey Clan!

This Writers Chat show is one you’ll return to again and again (especially if you need to take notes). In this episode, writer and typesetter, Rhonda Dragomir, starts us off on what’s sure to be part one of taming the bronc that is Microsoft Word.

You’ll learn secrets and shortcuts to make your life easier (at least when it comes to writing in Word), and change your mind about hanging up your hat in defeat.
