Our First Meeting of 2019

"Creating Readable Proposals in 4 Easy Steps!" was a great SUCCESS! 

The presentation will be available VERY SOON here. Check back shortly! 

Samantha Enslen with Dragonfly Editorial addressed how to create an easy-to-read proposal -- and measure readability. 
Proposal reviewers are notoriously impatient but are often handed dense, complex proposals filled with jargon, acronyms, never-ending sentences, and mile-long paragraphs. There is a better way. In this session, you'll learn how to scientifically measure the readability of your proposal text. Then, you'll learn four easy ways to significantly improve readability. Bonus: You'll also learn how enhancing readability helps your proposals and deliverables comply with the Federal Plain Language Guidelines and the Plain Writing Act.
