This one-of-a-kind course shows how to develop compliant and highly persuasive proposal sections in at least half the time that it would normally take. It covers detailed methods for outlining within the sections, developing section content, infusing proper structure and flow, and implementing correct writing processes and section planning techniques. But this course reaches beyond mere compliance.


You will acquire techniques and tools that will transform even the most reluctant non-professional writers into prolific proposal authors.


You will learn the science of persuasion through creating a mental picture in the evaluators’ minds, ways to overcome the writer’s block. The class will explain the differences between good and bad proposal language and cover detailed-self editing techniques, including editing automation. You will learn how to write better and faster. This workshop is 40 percent lecture, 50 percent exercises, and 10 percent discussion. The workshop exercises will double your writing speed, and will drastically improve the quality of your written products by giving you more time to polish them. The results will be astounding, making technical proposal writing easier, less time-consuming, and even enjoyable.
