Pages for Writers

A lot of writers I know work on MacBooks. A lot of industry pros work on Microsoft systems. I know this because agents and editors typically ask for manuscripts in the .doc/.docx Word format. Does this mean Mac users need to buy a subscription to Word? Good news – the answer is no. Under the “File” menu there’s an “Export” option. This opens a sub-menu that allows you to save Pages documents in other formats, including Word, PDF and even .epub.
 This means Pages can also open files saved in these formats, making it easy to work on edits and revisions sent back and forth between you and your agent or editor. How about you? Do you write on Mac or Windows? Hop on over to our Facebook page to join the conversation.
