Telling a Story: How to Write a Better Grant  features two 25 -30 minute presentations by Dwayne Martineau and Nic Wilson that explain how to tell the right story with the right budget with your next grant.After these two presentations, there will be a thirty-minute Q+A based on your questions. As the webinar is on Zoom, we will unmute the audience so you can ask your own questions. Join us and learn more about how you can tell your story through grant-writing!

About The Webinar: Dwayne Martineau has scored hundreds of grant applications and has studied what makes an application sink or swim. He’s seen good proposals go sour for reasons as small as a hard drive. He will be sharing simple tips and strategies that will help you successfully tell your story to a grants jury, avoid red flags, and keep your application away from the NO pile.

For Nic Wilson, a budget tells a story. It can create confidence in your grant application or it can raise alarm bells. In this session, they will talk about how to present a well balanced grant budget, how to use it once you begin your project, and how to report on your activities, expenses, and financial outcomes. They will discuss the difference between in-kind support, personal contributions, and grant requests with an emphasis on individual artists grants.
