Event Description

Writing a winning proposal can be a catch-22: Even though the best way to learn how to write a proposal is to be a reviewer, in order to review proposals, you must have already written a successful one. In this workshop, we’ll circumvent this paradox by using readers’ expectations of language, science, and argument to analyze the elements of effective proposals. How do proposals compare to other scientific documents? How do the various parts fit together? How can writers ensure that every page of the proposal develops and supports their overall argument?
