Writing Shed

Keith Lander
Serious writers need serious tools to help with their work. Writing Shed has been designed with you, the writer, in mind. It is more than a word processor, it is a complete management tool for novels, short stories and poetry.

MULTIPLE WRITING PROJECTS
Most writers know there is a lot more to the task of writing than creating documents filled with text. For example, poets typically have hundreds if not thousands of poems. Novelists and short story writers have a similar problem. Writing shed allows you to split your work into projects so finding documents is simpler and faster

MULTIPLE VERSIONS
Usually there will be several versions of each poem/scene/story. Writing Shed lets you create multiple versions of a text without having to create a new name for each.

BUILD OUTLINES
You can build plot/character and location outlines for novels and short stories.

CREATE COLLECTIONS
Build collections of texts for sharing/printing/submitting.

RESEARCH
Import research material including PDF, HTML and image files.

REMINDERS
Add events to the Reminders app to keep track of completion dates, magazine submission windows, competition deadlines and more.

WORK ANYWHERE
Writing Shed can use iCloud to automatically Synchronise your work between your devices (including the forthcoming Mac OS version of the App).

TRACK SUBMISSIONS/KEEP HISTORY
