Years ago, I took what was then called The Grantsmanship Seminar. This was a three-day proposal-writing workshop held in a sweaty meeting room in a Waltham, Mass. Then, for years afterwards, I got a quarterly update from the seminar in the form of a thick newsprint tabloid. Hadn’t heard from them for a long time, but I see they are alive and well. Their web site has an outstanding series of articles on grant seeking.
