Where it all began
I was working a full-time job (as Director of Development for a nonprofit literacy organization) where I was required to fundraise through grant writing. I had to learn the ropes of this particular form of writing on the job. I had been writing since I could remember (it was always my first interest and love) so I took to grant writing with ease.
