Come to my InCopy/InDesign Workshop in May

Curious about InCopy? Want to get a hands-on taste of how your editors can edit the stories in your layout on their own computers while you're working on it on your own? Curious about how InCopy performs as a Microsoft Word replacement? Need to learn tips and techniques for getting the most out of this workflow and avoiding common pitfalls?

Come to my InCopy/InDesign Workshop and bring your editors with you. It's a full-day, hands-on pre-show session at the upcoming InDesign Conference in Chicago (sweet home Chicago!) on May 15 — the full conference takes place May 15-18. The conference's schedule page contains descriptions of all the sessions, including my all-day InCopy one at the top — note how there's plenty of content for editors and designers alike:

The workshop fee is only $99 if you register by the early-bird deadline of April 2, 2006. If you enter my DesignGeek discount code when you register (good only for e-mail subscribers to DesignGeek — I won't be posting this on the web site), you'll get $25 off that price, and a higher discount, up to $100, if you register for the entire show.

Register for the 2006 Chicago InDesign Conference (or just my workshop):

If you're coming to my InCopy thing, bring your laptop, or rent one from the show organizers, load up InDesign CS2 and InCopy CS2 (and a few of your own layout files); and you can follow along as I step you through setting up and using an InDesign/InCopy parallel workflow. Tip: If you don't own the software, wait until the show is less than 30 days away and then download and install the free tryouts from Adobe's web site.

You don't have to have a computer though; I've done this workshop many times and even the people who just sit back and watch get a lot out of the day!

Or Attend InCopy Lite
If you're not quite at the point where you're ready to take a full-day class, you might be interested in a regular 50-minute session I'm doing during the full conference on Tuesday, May 16th, "InCopy for InDesigners." Scroll down the schedule (URL above) to see a description of the session.

InCopy for InDesigners will give you just enough information to show you how the workflow works, enlighten you to the possibilities of using InCopy instead of Word with your workgroup, and afford plenty of time to answer any questions you might have.

Hope to see you there! Chicago is beautiful in May, by the way. ;-)
