The main inquiries I receive from grant writers are:
How much should I charge for a particular project?
How much should I get upfront before I start?
And a call for help when the writing goes south, or they feel overwhelmed.
The main complaint I get from grant seeking clients is that their previous grant writer dumped a finished product into their lap on the day it was due and there were so many errors or missing initiatives we could have mentioned.
The main complaint I have hear from reviewers is how very dry the application is – and that it lacks passion.
This workshop responds to all of these issues: How to separate the whole application and other associated tasks into parts; How to create deliverables with approximated due dates; and How to create an interactive working relationship with the client that incorporates the clients passion into the writing; and How to keep yourself focused and on task during the writing process.
