Grant Writing Support

There is an art to grant writing, and it’s not always easy to achieve. No matter what level of assistance you may desire on grant or funding applications, I will help you to submit your best application possible. I will work with you to ensure your final application is clear, concise and written in a way that is strongly compelling in consideration of the funding body. I also provide grant writing workshops and can lead writing retreats.

Project Work

With unique, cross-sectoral experience, I can assist with any aspect of project work. I’ve always maintained a passion for research and am extremely adept at picking up topics very quickly, enabling me to conduct desktop research or background literature reviews on your behalf. I can also carry out stakeholder interviews, or bring teams together for workshops. Whatever your project or project management needs may be – I’d love to help!

Other Services

I provide a range of other science communication services, including research and report writing, science communication workshops, development and delivery of writing retreats, popular science writing, public speaking and panellist roles, proofreading, and developmental assistance on award and job applications.

Readability is as important for the scientific writer as it is for the novelist.

DO Hebb and Dalbir Bindra, ‘Scientific Writing and the General Problem of Communication’, American Psychologist (1952), 7(10), 569-573.

There is nothing so exciting or important as scientific discovery, and nothing more satisfying than being able to share your discoveries with the world.

The most crucial factor in getting your message out is the use of clear, appropriate and engaging communication.

Whether you are short on time, or just can’t seem to find the right words, I can help you to communicate your ideas to any audience- from children to the media and peers to granting bodies.
