Proposal Writing Style

It is important to keep in mind that proposal writing is a different kind of writing from writing a typical research paper, therefore it requires a different approach to composing your text and communicating your ideas. Your goal is to persuade your reader and sell your ideas in the most concise and understandable language. Whether you are new to proposal writing or wish to hone your skills, we highly recommend that you read the classic text The Art of Writing Proposals by Adam Pzreworski and Frank Salomon.
