Please visit www.adinagerver.com for a full list of services offered, references, CV, and current and past writing and editing projects. Writing I am a passionate and expressive writer, but more than that, I am able to distill complex ideas into easily-read sentences and paragraphs. With extensive writing experience dating back to junior high when I won my first writing contest, I can explain comprehensive educational programs with three bullet-points for your mass mailings, interview and profile your star employees for an internal newsletter, or write about ancient biblical laws and their connection to modern social ills.Editing Meticulous and careful, I will sharpen and improve your words. I will work closely with you to make sure that I understand the goals of your written work, and then smooth and shape your words until they say exactly what you mean. I can also do things like make sure that your sentences are not run-ons, that you have complete verb-noun agreement, and that all of your footnotes fit the style guide of your choice. Research Having conducted research in the Israel State Archives on British Mandate Palestinian education for girls, Harvard University's Widener, Houghton, and Schlesinger Libraries on topics ranging far and wide, and the New York Public Library, I love nothing more than hunting down the perfect fact or figure to meet your needs. Grant-writing After working at a foundation for two years, and clarifying their grant guidelines while there, I have read hundreds of grant applications. I have learned as much from the unsuccessful ones as the successful ones, and relish the opportunity to help good projects get funding. I successfully wrote a three-year, $160,000 grant proposal for a start-up educational program in New England in 2006.
