WOW, Temi is amazing! She is the real deal right here on Thumbtack - who knew?! I highly recommend Temi for any aspiring writer to connect with and benefit from - a professional editor with a gift for lending clear, concise changes and suggestions to the work an author has agonized over! The work is tight, crisp, clean. Her professionalism is top-notch. Responsiveness and punctuality - excellent! The work was delivered before the deadline I asked for and Temi won't tell you she can do something by a certain date if she can't deliver. When I write the sequel to the work I just finished, I won't hesitate to go straight back to Temi for Round 2.

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.

When working with a professional writer a business has to consider the writer's qualifications. Christopher from Ghost Strategies has a science background(Aeronautical Engineering), is an attorney and has written professionally for over 20 years. Because of this background he is very detailed oriented and is used to meeting deadlines. His science background means that he considers the substantive topic as well as good editing and writing practices in performing any project. He was an asset to my law firm and to my clients over a number of years.

Working directly in the trenches with Stephen for over a year at Fuel TV, Stephen always delivers from pre-production through the post-production process with exceptional creativity and flexibility in rapidly changing and demanding work environments. Whether Stephen is on one project or five projects, he attends to every detail to pinpoint precision and is always focused on providing the highest quality product. With Stephen, you will see a good overarching sense of story, a top notch final product, and a positive attitude that is always willing to work with you on every aspect of production along the way. I look forward to working with Stephen again in the near future, and if you hire him for your project, you will also appreciate his professionalism and positive nature and will be very pleased with your decision.

      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.
