Location: Online
Cost: $450 USD

This three-part workshop is for any photographer who wants to learn how to write better grant proposals to support personal work and long-term projects.

In the first of three 90-minute sessions, documentary photographer and filmmaker Sara Terry will explain what makes a strong proposal, including writing tips and how to sequence photos, share resources on grants and grant writing and give insights into funders’ thinking from her perspective as a funder with her non-profit, The Aftermath Project. The second session includes a writing exercise during class, which students will share and discuss. During the third 90-minute sessions, each student will receive personal feedback on their project statements and on how to sequence their photos for a grant proposal, as well as suggestions (when applicable) for grants to apply for.

Each student planning to share a project for Sara’s feedback should provide a project statement and no more than 20 images before the workshop.
