Working with Sangeeta was a dream come true! Throughout the entire week or so that we revised and edited my senior thesis, she was almost always available, present, committed, and encouraging. I had no idea how genuinely engaged she would be when she offered to assist me. Finishing the project was stressful. I am a perfectionist. But my worries were reduced because of her. I cannot say how many times she wrote and responded to my Thumbtack messages and emails, reviewing 30,000 words more than once. I highly recommend Sangeeta, and, if you have questions, write her. I am sure that her way of going above and beyond will show in her response. Good luck with your project! :)

Anish was extremely professional and really worked with my learning style. He motivated me to stay on top of my GRE study, and reviewed my practice exams to pinpoint what we needed to review together. On top of that, he even helped me polish my personal statement! I would strongly recommend him to anyone for private tutoring!

Julian is a thorough editor with a keen eye for detail. He has edited everything from essays to manuscripts for me and has taken my work from good to great. He is proficient at syntactical and grammatical feedback, but he has offered developmental and global insights on my work that ultimately made it publishable. I am always recommending Julian and his writing services to my friends, and I will continue to use Julian for all my writing projects in the future.

My savior in the world of resume writing and career marketing! I've been CEO and co-founder of a successful e-commerce business and run my own consultancy for the last ten years. As such, it's been a loooong time since I've written a resume or needed one. I am now making a career pivot and am applying for positions abroad. I was in overwhelm, with the classic entrepreneur's rant, "unemployed and unemployable, that's why I have my own company." I wasn't impressed with the quality of the numerous resume writers I was finding versus the fees they were charging. My pain point was, how do I find somebody to extract all the varied and valuable skills, initiatives and accomplishments I've had the last ten years of running my own businesses? Luckily, I found Brian. His process is very in-depth, consisting of a two hour onboarding interview, a follow-up revision session, and as many drafts and edits of your resume as needed until I was happy. I also had him re-create my LinkedIn profile. The end product is exactly what I wanted and needed and I'm so glad that I chose him to do the work. His rates are very, very reasonable, quite a bit less than others I'd found, and the quality of the work, extraordinary. Plus he's a world-traveler, author and musician, so the side conversations are great as well. Highest recommendation! Thanks, Brian.

I have been writing for many years and have worked with Jim on a number of projects. I continue to be amazed at how quickly he is able to flush out the most important aspects of the writing so that the message is clear, concise and impactful. His explanations for his rationale for editing changes provide assistance in improving my skills. As an added benefit, he is personable and witty, which helps lighten the burden and tedium of the revision and editing process. Jim is an integral member of the team of freelancers with whom I work. He provides a unique and invaluable perspective and his skills and temperament meshes well with those of other team members. I am appreciative of his assistance and have no hesitation recommending Jim.

Darya is great! She helped me prep for the verbal section on the GMAT. She was really patient and taught me very useful tips. She created a in depth study plan that addressed my weakness and kept me motivated. I would totally recommend her.

    Jeffrey provided editing services to our biopharmaceutical company assisting with position profiles and our recruiting/sourcing process. He adeptly edited both marketing and technical writing, thereby greatly enhancing our profile and appeal to new and critical talent. His writing and editing skills are second to none as is his turnaround on time sensitive material. He provided precisely what we did not have the time to complete. Thank you Jeffrey.

    Clients: Delta Airlines & American Express Serene has been such a pleasure to collaborate with on multiple projects at Epsilon/Solutionset. Strategic, smart and well composed, she is always one step ahead as she is continuously thinking about the big picture, the overarching consumer experience and brand voice. She is an excellent communicator, and if under crazy stressful deadlines or multitasking (which happens quite often), she always delivers with perfection and wit. We are perfect balance between left brain-right brain. Together we create a cohesive story evoking inspiration through messaging, strategy and design on every project.

    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.
