I know a lot of people who would like to find work from home employment and a lot of people who’d like to become writers. Most people think that either of these options on their own are impossible – let alone combining the two. The reality though, is that if you’re looking to become a work from home writer, there are options for you. One example is becoming a grant writer.
Grant writing can be tricky but very interesting. Basically, the way it works is that an educational establishment will be trying to get money for a particular venture. This money would come in the form of a grant from a variety of sources. The educational establishment needs to write a grant proposal, to explain why they need the money and exactly how the money should be spent.
Your job as the proposal writer would be to research the different ways the school would be spending the money and write a compelling argument that it would be the best way for the grant giver to spend their money. Every grant proposal you would write would be different. You’d get to learn a lot about a lot of different things. You’d also get practice writing compelling and persuasive work to convince others of your viewpoint. Not to mention, it looks great on any writer’s resume.
This type of work from home employment is one of the best options out there for creative people. Why wouldn’t you want to get creative – and get paid to do it?
