      Technical Proposal Writing

      Your proposal should be concise, convincing, and considerate of its recipient’s needs. Let me help you write it.

      Proposal Editing

      Rigorous Standards for Editing Proposals

      At its heart, a proposal needs to persuade – and it’s hard to convince someone to invest time or money in a faulty proposal. Outside of simple spelling and grammar checks, I’ll make sure your final product is concise and tailored, with no jargon and an eye for language sensitivity. Depending on your industry, I can also provide fact-checking upon request; just ask!

      Consider the Scope

      Are you proposing that your company reinvent the wheel, or just change its default font sizes? Will your company need an hourly breakdown of tasks, or a general overview?

      Consider the Audience

      As a persuasive document, your proposal needs to meet your audience’s needs – your manager, department head, or potential client. We’ll find out exactly what they need to hear to say yes.

      Gather Information

      I am here to communicate your expertise. We will have a strategy session where I pick your brain about this project – its background, purpose, time frame, budget, etc. 

      Present Drafts

      I won’t disappear with your unfinished proposal! I will provide you with outlines, drafts, and progress updates so you can feel confident that your finished product will meet your needs.

      F.A.Q.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      What kinds of proposals do you write?

      Whatever you need! I can write sales/business proposals or grant/research proposals. These can be solicited or unsolicited, internal or external, or responses to RFP.

      (Marriage proposals not included; just trust your instincts and I’m sure they’ll say yes.)

      What are the sections in a proposal?
      • Introduction (Overview)
      • Issue (including background information and importance)
      • Solution (what you’re proposing)
      • Qualifications (why you should fix the problem)
      • Conclusion (including costs)
      What process do you use to write or edit proposals?
      1. Consider the scope of the project
      2. Consider the project’s audience
      3. Pick your brain for background information about the project
      4. Write it, including progress reports and drafts
      How long will it take for you to write or edit my proposal?

      Since proposals come in so many shapes and sizes, I can’t guarantee a due date until I know more about your project. Contact me to get a better estimate of time and cost.

      Which industries will you write for?

      If you can explain it to me, I can write it. Most of my experience has come from the field of education, but I can write for upstart businesses, IT, medical professionals, and more!
