Jim Oliveri has a great facility with words. He greatly improved my manuscript, a full-length historical novel, finding the more embarrassing of my mistakes and correcting many of the common errors writers are apt to make. Jim was also very helpful with punctuation and those pesky commas I’m always adding or leaving out. He suggested alternative words where needed to enhance the text or to eliminate repetitiveness. Jim also did an excellent job pointing out sayings and idioms not used or in existence at the time the story takes place. Jim did a thorough job and he did it quickly. His corrections and suggestions were clear and self-evident, needing very little discussion or questions. Although it may not be suited to all authors, Jim’s method of working, which forced me to make the edits myself, was a learning experience. It not only instilled many good habits and practices, but it allowed me to make additional improvements as I went through the manuscript. All and all, I am very satisfied with Jim’s efforts on my behalf, and look forward to working with him again on future projects. It was money well spent!

Met with Kim for help with both mine and my husbands resumes, we met at a nice coffee shop and talked over both of our situations. We received our first rough draft that evening and were sore put to find anything wrong, needless to say she jazzed up both of our resumes with impeccable ability. If you are thinking about getting a writer go for it you will be happy you did.

Charles was hired as a ghost writer for a book. He took direction from me, the publisher and from the author he was writing for. He was organized and submitted a written plan for the project. He was easy to work with as well as efficient. His writing skills are excellent. He is creative and has an excellent command of the English language. I will continue to use him on other projects.

Preston did an engagement shoot for my fiance and I. He was really creative and eager to get the best shot no matter what the circumstances. My fiance and I are rock climbers, so sometimes that meant he was climbing trees and boulders, or laying in the mud. Preston's manners are impeccable and he's really easy to talk to and get along with. He will definitely be shooting my wedding too!

I met Ken Jensen in June, 2014 after interviewing several other potential editors for my novel, "Enemy in the Heartland." I selected Ken because of his professional attitude, his technical knowledge of military hardware, and the fact that he was an author himself made him an easy choice to be my editor. During the editing process, Ken's ability to keep the story's timeline correct and his suggestions on content has made my novel the success it is today. If you are thinking of using Ken's services, but questions, I would happy to talk to you on Ken's ability as an editor. Stephen Schwertley

I have worked with Ashley on several creative writing projects, and she has been wonderful! She’s kind, friendly, and easy to work with. Her critiques have allowed me to expand my novels in a way that really brings them to life. Her editing skills are topnotch, and she is thorough. If I don’t understand a particular grammar or punctuation rule, she is more than happy to explain and provide examples. She makes me feel good about my writing even when I feel like I am struggling with it. I’m so privileged to have her on my team. My writing wouldn’t shine half as bright without her.

Tim has been an excellent freelance writer for our project at PSA over the last couple of years. He has worked tirelessly and under sometimes strict deadlines. His research skills have been very helpful and his mastery of the English language has been helpful to me on a number of different occasions. Tim and I worked together previously at a couple of different companies, and when it came time to finding a freelancer for our massive CollectibleFacts project, I knew just where to turn.

    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.
