Announcing proposal support

Writing a proposal can be totally awkward. How do you ask for money in writing? How do you fit everything into one page? What if people don’t understand how awesome your project is?

The proposal doesn’t have to be intimidating. The proposal is your best friend on Sloup day. You can only talk to a couple of people at a time, but your proposal is speaking to everyone at once.

We want to help you make that proposal work for you. Starting in June, we’re offering Proposal Support to anyone applying! If you’d like feedback or guidance, just email stlsloup@gmail.com with the subject line Proposal Support. We’ll be in touch shortly! Proposal support ends for the month with the application deadline, midnight on the Sunday before Sloup.

We thank Savannah Davis of Savvy Story for offering this fabulous service.
