I’ve just finished writing a 150 word (ouch) proposal for a conference presentation and another for a virtual curation project (more about that if it progresses). I’m about to read a draft proposal for an event in which I might be collaborating later this year, And just before the end of last term I managed to squeeze my research proposal in to two sides of A4… Life is suddenly full of proposals! They are interesting things, a bit like fishing lures, colourful, buoyant, designed to have a tasty chunk of bait (appropriate to the kind of big fish one is trying to land) and a nice sharp hook with which to snag the prey, but dangled into murky waters in which one might be confidently swimming or nervously floundering! 

You can see my RD1 proposal here. I wonder what I’ll be thinking about it in a year’s time!
