COORDINATOR'S CLUB: The Write Stuff: Right Your Writing, A Workshop and Best Practices for the AEC Industry


Okay Coordinators, September means Back to School and Back to Basics in this exciting and instructional writing workshop!

Do you sometimes freeze up when confronted with a writing assignment or worry that your prose sounds formulaic and uninspired? When writing for marketing purposes, it's challenging to tell the right story in a way that is both clear and compelling to different audiences, particularly when your process necessitates input from a variety of team members.

In this writing workshop led by Molly Heintz and Avinash Rajagopal of Superscript, a New York-based editorial consultancy, you'll learn best practices for writing engaging texts and how to position that writing for key audiences. This writer's toolkit will be applied to a series of samples from the AEC industry, transforming problem texts into sparkling, effective prose.

Approved for 1.0 AIA/CES Learning Unit
