I met with Jo Ann to gets some advice on getting another job. In just a few of sessions, she helped me to get a better understanding of how to market myself, and how to play up my strengths during an interview. I also hired her to revamp my resume, and it looks 100% more attractive now. I'm writing this one day after a job interview, and Jo Ann's tips helped me not to get stumped or tongue tied, and helped me use my past experiences to illustrate why I'd be great for the position, even though I didn't have the exact experience they were looking for. The three sessions I spent with Jo Ann were worth far more than I paid. Thanks, Jo Ann!

Lisa is an extraordinary career coach and resume writer. Due to a career change, I needed assistance re-writing and re-focusing my resume. Lisa was extremely helpful; she asked well-thought out questions which helped me to clarify where I wanted to go and what I wanted to highlight as part of my resume. She truly helped me to re-brand myself. Lisa is highly professional, personable and easy to work and communicate with. She took all my input and produced a wonderfully written and designed resume that will help me embark on my new career path. Her turn-around time was amazing, too. Within two days of contacting her, I had a brand-new resume in hand! I highly recommend Lisa's services to anyone who is in need of a career coach!!

Shelly Henley has helped me with a variety of writing/editing projects: resumes, proof-reading, essay editing, cover letters. She is particularly gifted with writing persuasive letters and proposals, I think because she listens carefully, and asks the right questions. She is thorough, fanatical about spelling and grammar, and always completes the assigment in record time. She is a very effective writer/editor! Maren MacAdam Attorney Sacramento, CA

Charlie was very prompt on responding to my needs and was able to paint a picture of what I do in my daily life. He updated me on his progress and was great on communicating with me. The fact that he is in the same field as I am (a teacher) and his wife is also a special education teacher gave him the upper hand on why I chose him. I am horrible at writing resumes and cover letters, and Charlie did a wonderful job at editing and helping mine. Unfortunately, there were a few unnecessary words, but nothing small but small tweaks. Thank you, Charlie! He made my application process go a lot faster.

My son was struggling in his High School French II class. We found Mary Lee mid semester. After a few tutoring sessions he was back on track! She successfully was able to teach him proper grammar, reading, writing and speaking French. And she also was able to keep learning French fun for him! It was easy to schedule tutoring time with her even with his busy schedule. He improved his final grade by 2 letter grades!! I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone, she truly cares about all her students. I only wish we had found her sooner. :-)

Ms. Halper scores highly in all five categories. Her editing encompasses logic, English usage, and general organization. She leaves an option for personal preference, as in, "You may prefer to say this this way, but I would prefer that way," and leaves the final decision to the author. She works diligently; I receive her edits in a timely manner. Her cost is reasonable. I feel lucky to have found such a competent resource.

About

I have been writing for years, and this allows me to write flexibly based on subject matter. My background in fiction writing means that I can write non-fiction from a variety of perspectives, in a myriad of voices, and for diverse purposes. My love of reading, and passion for storytelling, mixed with an interest in marketing means that I can edit fiction from the perspective of a reader, with respect to the writer's process, and explain the relationship between presentation of the story and the reader's perspective to the writer. This combination and holistic approach to editing can help turn a good story great. My familiarity with fiction editing means that I can edit articles, essays, and assorted non-fiction works and shorter fiction with rapid speed that also does not take away from the quality of thought and attention to detail. Whatever you need written, I can write. Whatever you need me to edit, I can hone. My goal is to work with my clients to realize their vision.

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.
