Charles Koppelman knows how to use the art and language of film to tell a compelling story, and brings his intelligence and creativity to everything he does. He tailors his approach to the topic at hand and the audience, knows how to select and get the best out of actors and interview subjects, and assembles a crack team of highly professional editors, camera people, sound technicians and the like to produce a beautiful package. He brings a Hollywood sensibility to his corporate projects, and also has mastered the documentary medium. He offers a full-service firm whose expertise extends beyond film to include graphic design, marketing and more.

Marian is one of the most ambitious, proactive and provocative writers I've ever had the pleasure to work with. While writing for DBW, she did a great job of eliciting valuable insights from industry thought leaders, identifying worthwhile new media opportunities for authors, and walking the walk when it comes to social media. Don't be fooled by her age; she's smart beyond her years.

Anish always arrived fully prepared for each lesson. He is super capable and has a way to make even mundane material somewhat interesting. I would recommend him to anyone that wants to increase their score, and fast. He is also an excellent writer, and really put these skills to work when brainstorming with me for my personal statement.

I appreciate his attention to detail. He is informative and offers insight as to why he is making certain edits to aid in my growth and development as a writer. He provides constructive criticism when necessary while preserving my autonomy. He has been a valuable asset to my research writing. Noteworthy: Julian is not trained in scientific writing and has provided me with the most meaningful edits when compared to those who are trained in the field. The sign of a truly extraordinary editor. Highly recommend.

Kaitlin was my writing tutor for my college essays. She was very helpful throughout the process. The thing I liked most about working with Kaitlin was she gave me the freedom to devise my own ideas and writing tactics for the essays while she refined and perfected them. Kaitlin not only aided me in constructing well written essays, but also helped me become a better creative writer and learn advanced grammar rules that I could apply to my writing and standardized testing such as the SAT and ACT. She was very helpful and easy to work with.

Kristen edited my PhD dissertation in psychology superbly. She strengthened the quality of my writing significantly, taught me a number of techniques to improve further, and worked extremely quickly and professionally. I would recommend Kristen to anyone looking for a great teacher, writer or editor.

As a parent we always are looking for that special instructor who makes a connection with our child and brings out his/her strengths. Coach Mariem is just that. She is always upbeat and enthusiastic when teaching my 12 year old son to box. If you are reading this review and thinking of hiring an instructor, stop looking.... and book a session. I promise, you will be sooo glad you did.

Cynthia is one of the best, most empowering, most nurturing coaches I have ever had the honor of working with. Her wisdom runs as deep as her compassion, and I have felt heard, understood, and supported by her from the very first moment we talked. To me, she is a sort of Creative Midwife and Human Angel, helping me to break through years of paralyzing fear and self-doubt in order to manifest one of my oldest and dearest of dreams. Again and again, she has listened to me, encouraged me, and advocated for me in a way that gives me hope, more hope than I have ever felt before. If you're ready to change your life in a real way, contact Cynthia. Particularly for writers like myself, I can't imagine a more perfect and intuitive coach.

    I have worked with Jeff for the last three years, and he is, without a doubt, one of the best people I have ever had the opportunity to work with. As his supervisor, I worked with him closely, and he consistently delivered products that were high quality. He is always open to feedback, and embodied the voice of our organization in person and via communications (digital, social, etc.). He is passionate about social justice, education, the arts, and was a champion and ally for our students. His playfulness and professionalism made him an invaluable asset to our organization.

The process I employ ensures that I have adequate information to complete the job before starting it, whether the client provides that or I conduct my own background research. I am also a very detail-oriented copy editor. Transparent pricing is offered, preferably by the word but hourly rates can also be negotiated.

    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.
