Carissa is a great writer. She was able to quickly work through my paper and returned it with great edits. I could not have chosen a better editor. If you need writing services, look no further.

    Kelley designed a finished goods specification form for our organization. It incorporated all of the pertinent regulatory standards and internal requirements. It was easy to use and well-received by the cross-functional team responsible for the production, storage, marketing and distribution of our products. She also drafted, edited and revised policy and procedural documents. She is a superb technical writer. I was so impressed with her clear, precise writing style that I asked her to review my resume! Her edits resulted in a more streamlined, high impact presentation of my accomplishments and experience. It is always a pleasure to work with her.

      About

      If you want a writer, a cartoonist, editor, or concept design I'm your man. I've been blogging for over 2 years as well as producing tabletop projects and comics and short works. My real talent is in sequential art. I have a B. A. in English from the University of Central Arkansas as well as photoshop skills and graphic design. I have been creating for over twenty years. I do expect appropriate compensation and to keep the rights to my work. That said, I love working with other people on projects or small solo assignments. I have produced fan-based material for Mutants and Masterminds, and have been blogging for over 3 years, produced panels and pages of comics. I'm working on a book and a short story collection as well as a short comic (8-10 pages)

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      How do you hire a good grant writer?

      Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

      • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
      • Strong writing skills.
      • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
      • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
      • Expertise in your target area.
      • Punctuality and good communication skills.

      How much does a grant writer cost?

      Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

      • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
      • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
      • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
      • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

      Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

      Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
