Managing Scrivener Projects & Templates Pt. 2: Newsletters

Scrivener has been a key component to improving my productivity this year. I’ve recently written about various uses for Scrivener such as blog posts, newsletters and even template email messages. Additionally, I’ve shared about using Scrivener templates including some resources for these. In my last post I shared about managing templates.

Archer’s Aim Digest mailing list

As promised last week, I’ve developed a template for use in Scrivener. While I’m still working on a more important template, the one I’ve completed is for Newsletters.

This template has a number of organizational features that can be used throughout the year as a single project. I plan to use this for my own newsletter, The Archer’s Aim Digest.

First of all the binder is organized by months so you can add your own sub-containers for each newsletter edition. No matter how often you publish your newsletter you can add as many containers as needed.

Newsletter Months

Next I’ve added a Planning folder with several sub-containers. The first contains a table for an organizational calendar to help you schedule your newsletters and describe the topics. Next there’s a container for your ideas where you can place information about your various newsletters. Next you can place artwork in a separate folder. Lastly, there are containers for your header and footer design to include standard information about your newsletter editions like contact information.

Newsletter Planning

Additionally, I’ve included labels to help you track progress on your newsletters.

Newsletter Labels

You can download this Custom Scrivener Newsletter Template free and import it into your Scrivener software using the instructions included in my last post (Managing Scrivener Projects & Templates). Feel free to contact me with suggestions of your own and I’ll take them into consideration. Also, remember you can transfer your information into your newsletter application several ways including compiling the individual folder or copying and pasting the content.

  1. Nice.. thanks for the effort. I love this program though from everything I’ve been reading lately I’ve been using it for two years and barely scratched the surface of its usage.
