I am sitting in my classroom at school where I teach, trying to think of the perfect project for my Writing 5930G Technical Writing class at Georgia Southern University. At the same time, thoughts are running through my head about how much my classroom needs new books and software for Keyboarding. I realized that I needed to write a proposal to the Board of Education to get new books and software for my classroom. I also realized that I was in trouble. I had never written a proposal for anything and I had no idea how to start.
I am writing this article for all of those people who think writing their own proposal is impossible. After reading my article, I hope that you will see that writing an effective proposal can be very easy. First, I am going to outline some of the things you should consider when writing a proposal. I hope this will guide you in writing your own proposal. I have also included a copy of my finished proposal as a sample.
