EMUG member Michele Graf is looking for Mac-savvy and other computer-savvy people to be resources at the free Oct. 8 – 14, 2012 Muse Online Writers Conference, an annual international event that draws up to around 1,000 participants. We have live/ real-time chat workshops, plus forum workshops that can be accessed 24/7. In addition to workshops, we have publishers and agents who take pitches during the conference.
We have classes on all kinds of writing/creative/ publishing/ film/ blog, etc., topics, but want to add some new ones to help people get the most from the tools we have available — software, like the usuals on the Mac (Pages and iPhoto), PC (like the dreaded Word), Scrivener, Text Expander, TinderBox; plus project/task /calendar apps and software to help organize, plan, track, and do all the other things that help.
So many of us have a bunch of them living in our computers, iPads, and other devices, but don’t really know how to use them effectively.
Everyone working with the Muse Conference is a volunteer — all presenters, all behind-the-scene people who report to me. There is no charge to participants. A major Labor of Love . . . which means that all time is donated. (Maybe if we charged to attend it would be different, but that would be the antithesis of the foundation we’ve built.)
I’m hoping to find folks who are willing to answer questions, perhaps in an open forum where Q’s and A’s are posted during the week; perhaps in a live chat, at a time and date during the week that works for you to be online.
If you would like more information, have an expertise to share to help us understand the secrets of the universe (as it applies to the programs or similar ones mentioned above), please contact me. We can talk about what’s involved in more detail. If you are interested in participating in the Conference, I’ll be happy to share more about that, too.
Here’s a link to the Muse Online Writers Conference site, which will be updated with new conference info during the next month:
