I worked with Adam on two admissions essays. He made numerous edits and thematic suggestions that meaningfully improved my writing. I also appreciated his fast turnaround and enthusiasm for his work.

If it wasn't for Sunny, my resume would not exist or would look like a three year old made it. Sunny managed to make it look professional, but also made it read like natural writing, not like bloated, corporate-speak nonsense like so many resumes have these days. I also use Sunny for career coaching, and her sensible, compassionate advice is second to none. There are a lot of coaches out there, but I highly recommend that you give Sunny a try if you feel "stuck" in your career path or frustrated with the obstacles that life can throw your way. She's kind, reasonably priced and has a passion for her work.

I had never used a professional resume writing service but I am so glad I did. I love my new resume. Ashley did a fantastic job - exactly what was promised and worth every penny. I’m glad I’ll have a fresh resume when I officially kick off my search.

This was my first time writing a book, so I was skeptical of sending my "Work of Greatness" to someone I did not know. But she reviewed my work and offered very clear direction of how to smooth out my work and helped my story flow. I am very pleased with the outcome. I will use her services again in the future when Part II comes out!

Cheryl was fantastic to work with! She had a great way of going through my story and enhancing it with little tweaks and grammatical fixes without changing the storyline. She got it done quickly and efficiently and was very good about communicating with me on how everything was coming along. I really appreciated all the time and effort that she put into making my manuscript even better. I would definitely work with her again!

As a graduate student, I spent years providing edits, rewrites and feedback to fellow colleagues as well as Professors before publishing. I edited one sociological text, edited another autobiography, provided reference checks and bibliographies, and have served as that critical "extra set of eyes" on many people's projects. I briefly wrote an online blog for examiner.com on Petcare, which is also one of my passions.

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.
