My mother and I have been writing a book together for the past four years. No one has had a more sympathetic ear, feel for the style, and focus on the clarity than Hank Rosenfeld, our only choice of editor. For many years, he has also edited articles I've subsequently published in the LA Times and other publications. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

I contracted AWS for ghostwriting services (for my manuscript to treatment), to help me develop a screenplay Treatment from my book, "Recorded In Hollywood", with the goal of it becoming a feature film. I must say it was all I asked for and more. My ghostwriter really put in the time and interest into my project, to get the job done right, and professionally. Now I feel confident enough to go out into the world of Hollywood with something that is solid and right there with other Hollywood professionals. Thank you for your great work, and I can't wait to use your services again.

I have hired and worked with Audrey on many projects over the last several years and she is clearly one of the most meticulous and conscientious writers I have worked with, hands down. She is one of the first few writers I consider when planning projects and I highly recommend her. ~ Rodney Miles, Writing by Rodney Miles

About

Currently many writers are calling themselves ghostwriters due to the income opportunity. However, ghostwriting is very specialized and must be mentored by another very experienced ghostwriter. a ghostwriter may never have any of their own books on a bestsellers list; they must know how to work with a writer to give their work bestselling potential.

About

I ghostwrite screenplays and teleplays! I am a produced ghostwriter/scriptdoctor with 98 scripts under my belt (including comedies, sci-fi, dramas, sitcoms, action, thrillers, cartoons, and features). I've sold or was hired to write 94 of those scripts of which about a third have been made into movies and TV shows. A few even became TV series. I can write a killer script from scratch or fix one that's not up to par. I was also "Head of Literary" at a WGA signatory agency for 5 years, after being a "Reader" for 10. I know story, characterization, structure, format, plot, and sharp dialogue, in all genres like the back of my hand. Terms are negotiable, depending on complexities of the story and whether I get a credit or it's a ghostwriting job. I'm very discreet (willing to accept a production credit instead). I'm fast, effective, and cheap, and yes, I do sign non-disclosure agreements. If you have an idea for a story, I'm the guy to write it for you. You can find me (Dave Gist) on IMDb and also my company (Dave Gist Productions). You'll see that a lot of my credits are as a producer or executive of some kind, but most were actually ghostwriting jobs. Call, and I'll have my agent messenger send over a couple of samples, or if you'd rather deal directly with me, that's fine too. I hope to hear from you soon.

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.
