Lisa-Beth was extremely professional and is an expert in her field! I will recommend her to everyone! We had reached out to her as we needed a speech written for an executive. She responded to the opportunity immediately and was available and eager to assist. She made herself available to discuss whenever my team needed and provided so many quality samples. The best part was she made my entire team comfortable and reassured of her skills. I will definitely use her again in the future and would recommend others use her as well! She is the best!

I am so glad that I hired her and will continue to go to her for all my speaking, writing, acting, film and academic needs. You will get custom help for a reasonable price- she is an amazing tutor.

Chris was very attentive and informative. He was able to edit and provide me with powerful reasons why I should reword various sentences. I would recommend him wholeheartedly. His work was on time, worth the cost, and his experience in writing is helpful in guiding and supporting anyone new or old in the process.

Skip Press displayed outstanding literary writing skills when he edited my romance novel. He turned it into an entertaining, compelling, fluent, and beautiful story that will be memorable to all its readers. Besides, Skip is personable, reliable, and gets the work finished on time without any hassle. As a result of my good experience working with Skip, I highly recommend him to other authors. Annie S.

CML tutored our high school freshman this fall for about two months. He provided helpful advice on how to approach high school work (study skills, tackling big textbooks, time management) as well as specific, excellent feedback on essay writing and math, and AP test prep. He's very patient, approachable, and has a good sense of humor and he and my son have a great rapport. He was also very flexible and worked around our busy schedule. We highly recommend him.

Kandice is excellent. She is extremely professional, highly talented and has the wonderful ability to teach in a manner that you "get" the material. More impressive are Kandice's writing abilities. Whether her work is for social media or scripts for production, I've found her writing to be very expressive, delivering the "message" in the manner we wanted.

Amy is all about focus. That's what I gained from working with her on several different writing projects: a better understanding of how to focus my work. Amy cares about the unity and clarity of the final product, and she's passionate and thorough in her guidance toward those ends. With Amy, you're asked to consider what each sentence adds to the whole. She hates waste and has a keen eye for it. Through working with her, I've developed a better sense of writing as communication - how to get an idea across, how different readers will interpret different words and concepts, how editors and publishers will judge writing in ways the novice writer might not be prepared for. I think of myself as a more astute writer for Amy's guidance, with a clearer understanding of the place my writing can have in the world. But the best thing about working with Amy is getting to discuss writing with someone who cares about the craft in a more than superficial way. Amy isn't just a teacher; she's a scholar and a stylist, a creator and a critic. Her knowledge and interests cover a wide range of topics and disciplines, and she brings that rounded background to bear on each project she takes on. I'm lucky to have had her in my corner.

VK composed a biography for my band and we gave her a fairly elaborate fantasy concept to work with. She turned around an incredible story about our main character and brought the entire concept to life. Her story has been the basis of much content for the band and the fans adore it. Her writing is impeccably visual, painting an incredible picture for her readers. VK is a multi talented writer and social media guru - we are so grateful to have been involved with VK and LBS!

    Ms. Nash has grammar-checked and given notes on five of my finished screenplays. I found her work to be concise and finished in a timely manner. Her grammar-check was always one hundred percent accurate, rivaling that of the local Cray Supercomputer. Ms. Nash's notes were always specific, well-informed and expressed with a certain panache. I found myself following her advice on many occasions, resulting in a streamlined and more interesting screenplay. I will not hesitate to seek out Ms. Nash's services regardless of the amount of Best Writer awards that roll in as the liver rolls out.

    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.
