Mauri was by far the easiest to talk to, friendly and above all, intelligent, organized and creative minds I have ever encountered. Always terrified writing my own resumes, with several bad and uncomfortable experiences with third party companies who never seemed to listen or convey the information I gave them, it was a true breath of fresh air to find Mauri. Not only did she actively listen to me go on and on with the patience of saint, but was kind enough to help me find the self esteem and for the first time in my life, have a resume I not only feel comfortable representing me, but proud to present to perspective employers. Too bad there aren't 100 more like her.

By far Dana Cynaumon is the most talented, articulate, and fluent writers we've ever met! Working with Dana to help redesign Allied Lighting's Company website and powerfully convey our company message is one of the best choices we've ever made. Dana's work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, and overall value has not only provided an effective newly designed website, but also has given us a sense of peacefulness and renewed confidence that our prospective customers will easily understand our extraordinary message and what makes our Lighting company unique. Thank you Dana! From all the Light Ambassadors at Allied Lighting!

Emily is an excellent editor. She is able to edit my writing to clearly and eloquently communicate exactly what I am intending to say, but in better writing. When she sends revisions, I appreciate that she allows me as the writer to take her suggestions or not. I will be using Emily as my editor in the future.

Working with Jessica was super easy and a great experience. She helped me with the writing of my ebook. We used an outline I had written to discuss my concepts and thoughts. She then wrote a draft, which began an iterative process. She used a writing style that matched what I needed and through a back and forth process we completed exactly the book I was hoping for! Jessica was reliable, patient, very easy to work with and finished this on the timeframe that I needed. I wholeheartedly recommend her and will use her again!

I have known Mr. Pestle for several years. He is extremely passionate about teaching, theater, acting, and writing—this shows in every aspect of his work, especially his theater productions and English classes. His encouragement, enthusiasm, and humor make him an excellent mentor. I have enjoyed learning from Mr. Pestle through discussion of literature and art! He is honest, and very easy to talk to. Mr. Pestle is awesome. I would absolutely recommend him.

Joseph Descans helped me with the editing of several documents. His knowledge and editing skills were outstanding, and his patience with the process was the best part. It can be tremendously frustrating when you have "writer's block" and the words just don't come out right, but a patient tutor is such a great asset to have in your back pocket!

Jenny Cradle is one of the most talented writers in Los Angeles/Orange County, Ca. To be honest if not the United States. I am saying this from experience because she has helped me improve on my writing skills and I have also received A's on my papers. My name is Levy and I am currently getting my masters in special education. Jenny has God given talent and I think God for the gift that she has and continues to share. I highly recommend Jenny Cradles writing services.

      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.
