Join Anne Marie Purkey Levine for this informal workshop where she will walk you through the nuts and bolts of creating a strong proposal – including how to structure your letter of interest or proposal narrative, project budget, and tips for examples of past work. Time will be included for Q&A and to workshop ideas with the group.
