The Writing Grant Proposals workshop offers practical suggestions from an experienced grant writer who has written numerous grants ranging from a few hundred dollars to over a million dollars each. The workshop is designed for beginning writers and experienced writers who wish to increase their acceptance rate on future proposals. Unlike the many workshops that simply discuss grant writing, this workshop is all nuts and bolts: Do this and get these results. Workshop participants will discover how to give proposals the spark that makes them irresistible. Workshop topics include learning how to apply the same test evaluators use for ranking proposals, developing an effective writing style, learning how to design a budget, and examining successful proposals and the specific qualities that made them more attractive than all the competition. Participants will also learn to avoid the one mistake that causes the most rejections, to turn limitations into strengths, and to identify their own unique circumstances and use these to strengthen their proposals.
