A Modest Proposal on A List Apart.
I had the privilege of authoring a little piece for A List Apart on writing better proposals. It’s live.
The ALA team was helpful, friendly, and professional. Having now gone through the process, it’s easy to see why every article they publish hangs together. Thanks Mandy, Carolyn, Krista, and Erin for holding my hand, and thanks to the editors behind the scenes who liked it enough to give it the green light. If you have a comment, you should definitely join the discussion. There’s a lot to talk about.
Much gratitude also for Devan and his virtual red pen, Jay and the countless conversations we’ve had on this topic dating back several years, and Andy and David for not only making their thoughts on this subject available for aspiring young men like myself but also kindly offering their feedback on this article in particular.
