This two-part workshop led by experienced grant writing consultant Melissa Sandor includes a hands-on writing workshop followed by a mock panel review that explores how to create a thorough and successful grant proposal and offers a look into how a panel of arts professionals would discuss your proposal. The first 12 participants who register for both workshops are eligible to receive feedback on their proposal by a mock panel during the second session. Other participants will gain valuable information from the first workshop presentation as well as gain in sight into how a panel reviews proposals. Registration is on a first come first serve basis.
