The 11trees Writers’ Toolkit is both a free website of resources and a powerful Microsoft Word add-in that unifies important tools for writers including:
- The web’s best resources on grammar, style, organization, argument, research, and citation formatting
- Tools like a thesaurus, citation management, citation formatting, word count, spell check, and basic grammar check
- Embedded Google Scholar search and candid advice on how to write compelling academic essays (and get better grades)
These resources appear inside Microsoft Word, so a writer can access them as they create.
We anticipate releasing an advertising-free version of the Toolkit on October 1, 2010 for $7 (1/10th the price of most writing handbooks). Check back here for more info.
The Writer’s Toolkit is a custom ribbon for Microsoft Word that brings together all the tools necessary for a writer: research, help with citation formatting, quick access to grammar and similar help. Best of all, the material appears inside of Microsoft Word, so you don’t have to reach for a $70 writing handbook and waste time thumbing through the index.
