AGS Writing SIG @ Cafe Express
Jul 10 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
AGS Writing SIG @ Cafe Express | Austin | Texas | United States

July’s meeting will be a workshop – we’ll have a laptop and flip scanner and we’ll learn how to take photos and imbed them into your word documents. Bring a few photos if you’d like to scan them. Email your document and digital photos to robinraben12@gmail.com if you’ve already got them scanned. We’ll work on it adding photos to documents together using the TV in the room for all to see.

We meet in the small room next to the kitchen at Cafe Express – you are welcome to eat dinner there (at your expense) but that is not required. We share the cost for the room (about $5 a person or less depending on how many attend.)

If we have time we’ll do a reading or two – we’ll see how it goes. Hope to see you there!
