Upcoming Dates and Programs

Editing Research Grant Proposals, with Letitia Henville

Wednesday, April 6th
7:30 PM – 9:00 PM EST

Zoom meeting opens at 7:00 PM EST for socializing 

Join us for a conversation about “Editing Research Grant Proposals” led by Letitia Henville (she/her), an award-winning instructor and academic editor. Letitia (rhymes with "militia") will cover the grants landscape, written and unwritten rules for proposals, her top three tips, and your next steps if you'd like to break into this rewarding niche. You can send questions ahead of time to Letitia on Twitter @shortishard or through her website at shortishard.com/contact.

Letitia Henville (she/her), PhD, is an award-winning instructor and editor who helps researchers to articulate their goals to an audience of their peers. She lives and works on the unceded, stolen territory of the Səl̓ílwətaʔ and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm people on the land now called the Dunbar region in Vancouver. Letitia is a cheese-loving misanthrope, and she writes the monthly advice column “Ask Dr. Editor” for University Affairs.
