  • AUDIENCE

TOPICS INCLUDE:

  • Proposal Planning (Pre-writing): As a Proposal Writer, you may feel like the first step is to start writing immediately after the proposal section is assigned. Careful planning may seem like a waste of time, but when planning tools are used, you simplify the writing process and save time. Planning is vital to ensuring you create a clear, concise and correct document while also improving the flow and direction. This makes it easier for an evaluator to score your proposal.
  • Proposal Writing and Development: Proposal Development picks up where the planning and pre-writing ends. This process involves the O-W-e-R in POWeR approach to proposal writing. Without proper organisation, writing can be difficult and time-consuming.
  • Proposal Revision and Submission: As a writer, you need feedback. Examining your writing requires involving others on your team or in your organisation who can be unbiased and realistic in providing feedback. Based on the feedback, you can revise to improve readability and increase the likelihood of your proposal being selected.
