Writer’s Workshop Today: 3 Free Tools in Your Writer’s Toolbox

Join me today, writer friends, at the Working Writer’s Club where I’ll be teaching a telephone workshop that gives an introduction to the benefits and the basics of using 3 free tools for writers that I absolutely love:

CREATESPACE is an awesome place you can publish your book for FREE. Yes, free, and I’ve used it for about half a dozen of my self-published books.

INKSCAPE is a fantastic drawing tool you can use to create promotional materials for your books such as bookmarks and teacher’s guides and supplemental material such as read-aloud plays. And it’s FREE to use.

TEACHERSPAYTEACHERS is an amazing site where you can sell promotional and educational material for your books for teachers to use in classrooms whether they teach kindergarten through adults whether in public school, private school, or homeschooling families. They have a free membership you can join if you’re a teacher. If you’re not a teacher you can contact them and inquire about how you can join for free.

  1. Oh durn, Nancy, i missed this. I love that you’re such a sharer of everything writing!!! I always appreciate you. While you were helping others with writing tools, I was helping friends with other tools-first with hammer, wire and tape, to transform church gym into a wedding venue, then with “secret” recipe to help daughter prepare dinner for 3 Italian, high school, exchange students- with a soccer game somewhere in between! Next time, hopefully. Thank you for being you.

    • Oh what a busy gal you are, Mona! And what a fun day you had with your tools.
