Writing Winning Proposals with Bonnie Lund
3:00 PM-5:00 PM

Harkness Auditorium, CSC 250

Writing successful proposals requires an understanding of the argument and style that persuades reviewers and agencies to fund research. An equally important element for the writer is learning how to produce a successful proposal using a writing process (planning, drafting, and revising) that increases writing efficiency and quality. This three-session workshop combines discussion on writing principles and processes, specific proposal critiques, and writing practice to advance and refine your proposal.

Register by September 16, 2016, limited to 20 participants.
Session dates:
Tuesday, September 27, 2016, 3-5pm
Tuesday, October 11, 2016, 3-5pm
