Ever been curious about writing grant proposals? This collaborative event between the Dramatists Guild and Candid will provide theatre writers with a comprehensive Introduction to Proposal Writing in the Arts. It is free and open for all to attend.


The training will include:


  • The basic elements of a proposal;
  • The “do’s” and “don’ts” of writing and submitting a proposal;
  • How to follow up whether the answer is yes or no.


The session will include real-world experiences and scenarios from Candid's experienced instructors and takeaways that you can put into action right away. Participants will receive handouts and a copy of the presentation. The format will be conversational with the opportunity for questions and answers.
