Michigan Environmental Council Newsletter Article
December 6, 2012
During my internship with Michigan Environmental Council (MEC) I was asked to write and coordinate articles for the quarterly newsletter that is sent out both electronically and in print form. The article I was asked to write specifically was based on the study done by MEC towards the feelings of the new taxes for infrastructure. Overall the survey found favorable results of people who wanted to pay more in taxes for improvements to roads, public transit, and most importantly light rail systems.
This article shows how I was able to take dense data and findings and put that into a detailed yet easily digestible piece for our readers. I also learned how to craft articles in the proper tone to match the overall narrative of MEC and was able to receive some accolades from my superiors when the final version was printed. I also created the infographic on the side of this article and our communications director chose the stock photo for the highways.
