APS has a directory of Freelance writers and editors who will, for a fee, provide writing assistance for manuscript, book chapters, grants, and other forms of writing. In addition, APS is developing “templates” for NIH and eventually NSF to help guide  faculty on capturing the key points of these proposal to be successful.   To access either of these resources, please contact: Karen Dodson dodsonk@wusm.wustl.edu (314) 362-4181
