From all my years of writing and reviewing grants I’ve learned that the ability to write successful grants corresponds with your ability to tell a story. In fact, there are many similarities between writing a grant and writing a short story. The only difference is a short story is fiction and a grant is not. Nevertheless, the skill sets required to do both are the same.
That’s why you need to master the art of storytelling. It doesn’t come easy for everyone, but I can teach you. I’ve discovered that my super power is story telling. I know how to do it and I know how to teach it.
In my NEW course: “grAnt wRiTing 101: The ART of the Skill” I teach you how to effectively tell your organization’s story in a grant proposal.
