A Cherished Resource
“My original copy of How to Write a Grant Become a Grant Writing Unicorn is well thumbed, dogeared, highlighted, and bristling with bookmarked pages. I couldn't imagine how you'd improve something I'd already found so useful. But you did. The updated version builds on the original foundation - keeping the accessibility, tools and fun, sassy tone - while adding practical and holistic advice toward career transformation, but it is the inclusion of Unicorns Confront Their-isms and How Do I Center the Community in My Work by Alex Lustig that truly elevates this new addition and leaves a powerful, thoughtful impact. I'm simply moved and grateful for your combined, insightful sharing of experiences along with the technical advice and guidance.”
“As a special needs mom, I know I can learn anything. But I still struggle with imposter syndrome and overwhelm as a new grant writer. Meredith's witty and wise insights are clear, authentic, and immediately actionable. You will not regret reading this book.”
