Margit Brazda Poirier, certified grant professional (GPC), will present a 3-hour introductory workshop as part of the Society for Technical Communication (STC) 2017 Spectrum Conference. Registration is open to all and you do not need to be a member of STC to attend.
As the technical writing profession evolves, skills such a grant writing become increasingly important in obtaining the funding needed to support programs. This interactive workshop is for those new to grant writing. The focus is on writing grants to support programs, capital projects and operations at nonprofit organizations and businesses (not college grant applications). Participants will learn basic skills needed to find and write compelling foundation, state and federal grants. Topics will include: 1) How to find grant opportunities; 2) Preparing information commonly asked for in grant applications; and 3) Tips for writing winning grant applications.
Participants are encouraged to bring with them a project idea that is in need of funding. The outcome of this workshop is that each participant will have begun the process of preparing a typical grant application.
