Lancaster gregblancaster@hotmail.com Experience Crossroads Custom Writing Spokane, Washington Owner/President Proposal, Technical, Grant Writing (2010 to Current) For companies who need contract custom writing; or for nonprofit and for-profit entities looking for grant writing, research, evaluation, Crossroads Writing and Editing Service is an economic method to augment your staff. I offer 32 years of professional writing and editing experience. I will come to your place of business to manage sensitive steps in document creation. My research and interview skills are strong, and I can "pull" the necessary information to create a variety of document forms (e.g., manuals, proposals, grants, marketing material, public relation releases, master degree theses, or doctoral dissertations).
