From the attention-grabbing hook to the thrilling conclusion, all stories have a structure – as does each project, organization, funding appeal and grant proposal. In this interactive workshop, participants will borrow from the time-tested crafts of playwriting, filmmaking, and fiction to infuse their funding appeals with the themes, details, and emotion necessary to make their project leap out of the slush pile.
