Join us for a special pre-conference session led by Gail Widner, Ph.D, GPC in conjuction with the 2018 Southern Regional Grant Conference. The session will feature instruction, review, and practice on writing and editing grant proposals (both government and foundation). Participants will spend time reviewing the basics of writing, proposal writing tips, and actual paragraphs from an array of proposals Gail submitted (before and after editing). Participants will gain more detailed expertise in editing proposals and strategies to appeal to funders. If you would like some feedback from Gail and your colleagues, please bring drafts or a rejected proposal with you (both the text and the directions if possible). The group will collaborate and discuss strategies to improve the likelihood of successful submissions.
The session will be held on Tuesday, April 17, 2018 from 12-4 PM at the Morrow Center. The cost is $50 and the session is limited to the first 24 paid participants. So please register early!
