A Little about me...
I'm Alegra Loewenstein; I edit and write for science and medical professionals who are conducting original research while meeting the many demands of their careers and lives.
My specialty is working closely with bioscience research professionals in academic and business settings. I help write grants to obtain funding, based on previous applications and research and team content contributions. I offer high-level developmental editing, turning a speech-to-text collection of ideas or a very rough draft into a polished, ready to submit article for prestigious, high impact, peer reviewed journals. I support the many additional writing and editing needs of my clients, from writing letters of interest to cover letters to award applications on your behalf, all in order to support your research to receive the funding and recognition it deserves.
I am a trusted confidant for my clientele, providing confidential writing support for your career and research.
Alegra works magic with her writing, from grants to reports to simple emails. She is always focused on the big picture, and she can streamline things that would otherwise get bogged down with worries or unimportant details. She understands the science, and even more importantly she is a quality communicator in every way. I wish she could write EVERYTHING for me, because she is that good! ~H.G., Biology and Biotech
HOW IT WORKS
I bring qualified clients on with a modest retainer of 4 hours per month. These hours expire at the end of the month; they do not roll over. Additional hours beyond 4 per month are billed in 5 minute increments. I always aim to be an efficient service provider, making sure your money is well spent. Communication is key, and I will provide you with estimates and updates for all projects. With a limited client roster, I can provide fast turn around (generally within a week, often within a few days). Contracts are renewed at the beginning of each calendar year and rates are subject to change with contract renewals. I also offer project-based quotes, depending on the needs of the client. If your proposed project is beyond my scope or my client roster is full, I aim to provide quality referrals. Reach out to see how I can help!
Alegra, there’s nothing out there like what you do. There is nobody else to go to. You're doing something everyone like me needs. ~O.M., Clinical Oncology and Hematology
At the times my work expands outside of architecture and into the urban planning and policy arena, the need for writing increases exponentially, as the reliance shifts from the fully visual to more verbal. This is where Ms. Loewenstein has been amazing. Her ability to take my bulky analysis and synthesize what I'm trying to convey in a concise manner is invaluable and also pleasure to read. ~ D.C., Architecture and Urban Planning
Thanks for all your hard work and openness through this process. My feedback would not have been half as valuable if you had not been open to new ideas or protective of the text. Appreciate all your hard work on this and for taking the time to lovingly move the guys through the process. You've been extremely patient and kind every step of the way. ~T.A., Human Resources
Alegra wrote a chapter for me to use in an anthology. The process could not have been easier! It took almost no time from me, which was great because my business is growing, and time is at a premium. The time we did spend together discussing the book was actually fun- and easy to fit into my schedule. After a few (quick) back and forth exchanges, the chapter was done, and it got my ideas across perfectly. She was also able to keep my voice throughout the chapter which was really important to me, too! ~Alex Brzozowski, Digital Organization
I had an idea but was not a good writer. Alegra seemed genuinely interested, and her questions were proof. She quickly developed an outline to organize all this information. The outline took shape and soon turned into chapters. Alegra utilized motivational interviewing techniques to really dig around to get the story out of me; rattling my memory, shaking me up. I reveled in the experience and was excited to share this with someone like Alegra, to share what I felt to be an equal passion. Alegra was easy to work with. She was flexible in her schedule, fun to speak with, and her edgy humor and views of the world made our time together feel like just catching up with an old friend. ~ T.B., Psychology and Sociology
Alegra, this is an outstanding book. I finally got the chance to read through all of it. You have done a great job putting on paper what this is all about. You are part of this team and exceeded my expectations, which is pretty rare in business today. ~M.R., Business Administration
