HotNews Submissions

Does reading our newsletter motivate you to write something? Have you ever thought...  "I can do that"

AUGI is all about members getting involved—the more our members are motivated to participate, the stronger AUGI grows.  Writing for AUGI publications about the Autodesk software you use every day provides benefits for everyone involved. Our readers benefit, obviously, from the knowledge and best practices shared by fellow members like you. As a writer, you’ll benefit by having your work published on a global scale and you’ll receive the satisfaction that comes from helping your peers.

So, what does it take to get involved?

We welcome input from readers! Don't be afraid to pitch an idea or offer suggestions for future articles. We also invite your comments about current articles. Simply email the HotNews Manager ( and we will send your information to the appropriate party.

Submission Process

Step Up > Discuss > Write > Submit

  • You first contact us to write at This is often the hardest part! For some reason users think they aren't good enough. Trust us, you can do it! The Manager will either directly discuss with you about your topic, or pass you to the appropriate Content Manager.
  • The Content Manager will discuss with you and compare editorial needs with your area of interest. This is usually brief and can be conducted by email as needed. Once complete you will have a specific editorial target, what product, topic, approach, and length. You will also be given when the content is required.
  • Starting with the HotNews article template, you have at it and write your article. During the period between missioning to write and submission you will be contacted and reminded about the upcoming deadline.
  • Once you are done, you will email your Content Manager the MS Word "DOC" file. We will also need all images/figures as individual files. You can put them in the article if you wish, but they need to be provided as well. Refer to the template for figure callout standards.

In most cases you will not need further editorial efforts. If we do find something amiss, in content or figures, we will get back to you during production layout.
