Quark Express for #Free for Teachers #edchat

A colleague recently shared....

For a limited time, QuarkXPress 9 is free for teachers. This short article tells you how you can register for a free license for the software and how to receive it. They're calling it a "Teacher Try-It" program. The full version of the software retails for $799, and the education version is $199.
Now it's free though for teachers.

I remember using Quark back in the old days--when you had to load it off a floppy disk--but have since switched to Scribus for Desktop publishing. Scribus is free, open source software and does some nice stuff! Combine Scribus with OpenClipArt...

From Scribus' web site:
