Word Templates for Writers

edited February 2019 in - Resources
Hi All,
I am an avid Microsoft Office user but would be interested to know if anyone has found or uses a dedicated template in Word for Writers. This would help with all the basic formatting and layout issues one can experience if just writing in a Normal Template format. Would appreciate any feed back or suggestions. Thanks All.


  • Assume this is part of Office 365?
  • Yes Carol, Word will be found in any Microsoft package.
  • Yes I know, but I assumed there must be templates in the latest version of Word...

    Scrivener has templates but I've not tried them yet.
  • Word has many, but unfortunately not for book writing which really surprised me. I think I looked at Scrivener the other day, but I will look again. Thanks Simon
  • You can download templates via this link. They are sized for paperbacks and there's no reason why you can't use them for a WIP. The margins are set to accommodate a book's spine. You decide how to set the indents etc. but you can find guidance on that via Google.
