Oftentimes, people charged with the task of writing grant proposals have little or no training in the process, and many actually feel intimidated by the act of writing. In Storytelling for Grantseekers, consultant and trainer Cheryl A. Clarke helps fundraisers overcome these hurdles by presenting an organic approach to proposal writing. Grantseekers who have used this process discover that telling the organization's story in narrative form (complete with settings, characters, antagonists, and resolutions), can help them connect with grantmakers and ultimately have greater success with funders. This guide contains the resources needed to help craft a synopsis, package a compelling story, and create a short story approach to the inquiry and cover letters that support the larger proposal. Clarke walks grantseekers through all the phases of developing an effective proposal and highlights the creative elements that link components to each other and unify the entire proposal. Clarke also stresses the need to see proposal writing as part of a larger grantseeking effort, one that emphasizes preparation, working with the entire development staff, and maintaining good relations with funders.

Discourse on the Move is the first book-length exploration of how corpus-based methods can be used for discourse analysis, applied to the description of discourse organization. The primary goal is to bring these two analytical perspectives together: undertaking a detailed discourse analysis of each individual text, but doing so in terms that can be generalized across all texts of a corpus. The book explores two major approaches to this task: ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’. In the ‘top-down’ approach, the functional components of a genre are determined first, and then all texts in a corpus are analyzed in terms of those components. In contrast, textual components emerge from the corpus analysis in the bottom-up approach, and the discourse organization of individual texts is then analyzed in terms of linguistically-defined textual categories. Both approaches are illustrated through case studies of discourse structure in particular genres: fund-raising letters, biology/biochemistry research articles, and university classroom teaching.

If you?ve ever wondered why you were denied funding for an obviously worthy project, How to Write Knockout Proposals just may have the answer.In all likelihood, your proposal was the culprit.With information all around us today -- both online and in print -- virtually anyone can identify the right prospects, whether they?re corporations, foundations, or even individuals. That?s the easy part.But few people, as Joseph Barbato says in the first chapter of his new book, can write a ?Knockout? proposal, "a document of such force it nearly catapults the funder down the hall."A proposal writer himself for 30 years, Barbato hopes to change that.Even if you don?t have the skills to compose a riveting proposal ? in other words, even if you?re not blessed with the talents of Philip Roth, Toni Morrison, or John Updike - you can dramatically improve your proposal and make it more appealing than the overwhelming majority of those currently submitted.The key is to heed Barbato?s tips and suggestions on everything from naming your proposal, to helping the funder ?get it?, to emphasizing the right benefits, to focusing on the most arresting data, to guarding against a range of red flags. Barbato?s engaging style goes down like icewater in August. He is brief, snappy, and always fresh. The entire book, with its 51 two-page chapters, can be read in one sitting.But don?t be fooled by its brevity.As Joel Orosz, the Kellogg Foundation?s former program director, says in the Foreword: "As someone who has sat on both sides of the funding desk, I can attest that How to Write Knockout Proposals provides advice that will help you in the real world, with real funders."

This is an important topic that, to my knowledge, has not been addressed in other grant writing books.” —Karen A. Randolph, Florida State University “The examples, boxes, and glossaries in the proposal are excellent and provide a ‘real-life’ look at the concepts being presented.” —Carol E.
