Charles Euchner

Charlie Euchner has spent his career in two worlds–urban affairs and writing. In recent years, Euchner has been the principal of The Elements of Writing, the only brain-based system for mastering writing in all fields. The program is detailed in The Elements of Writing and The Elements of Writing for Architects and Planners, among other works.

Other books explore the civil rights movement (Nobody Turn Me Around) to the politics of sports stadiums (Playing the Field) to protest (Extraordinary Politics) to urban policy (Urban Policy Reconsidered) to baseball (The Last Nine Innings) to elections (Presidential Selection).

Euchner has delivered bootcamp-style seminars for businesses, schools, and professional associations all over the U.S.

Educated at Vanderbilt University and the Johns Hopkins University, Euchner taught urban politics and policy at Holy Cross and Northeastern, served as the first founding executive director of the Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston at Harvard University, and coordinator of the City of Boston’s longterm planning process.
