Lois is a wonderful tutor. As soon as she heard me talking she knew exactly what was it that I needed to train my English in order to take it to the next level. Highly recommendable to those who have an advanced level of English, because she is really precise and you get to learn a lot of history on the language. It is very enjoyable and it makes sense. If you need ESL, she's the one! She is also a writer, producer and acting coach, therefore she's also super creative and helpful when it comes to having to work out some text.

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.

She is GREAT! She was completely available and responsive. I am a new writer and she helped keep me on task and even offered confidence building comments. Her work on my manuscript was excellent. She worked through a good deal of dialogue and narrative that was broken. We have created a comprehensive text. I am impressed and will continue to work with her going forward. I highly recommend her as an editor.

David and I have been collaborating on projects for 25 years. I basically learned my craft by studying his work. Without his tutelage, I might not have made the cut. He has incredible insight into the subliminal psychological factors that make movies work. Because of that talent, he writes excellent story notes that have turned floundering projects into successful movies. I've only met half a dozen story analysts who can work on this level, and David is at the top of the list. In addition, he has a breadth of knowledge that brings an extra degree of insight to his work ranging from film history to world history, pop culture, music, religion, and a host of other areas. He also has experience in the field of comedy as a writer and performer that makes him the absolute best analyst in that genre. He's still an important resource for me when I just can't quite put my finger on why a comedy isn't working. Finally, he's a great human being – warm, compassionate, and highly respected by his co-workers. He's the kind of team player who's an asset to every workplace. In every possible way, David is one of the best in the business.

I reached out to David for a memorial announcement and received a beautiful, tasteful, thoughtful design in less than a few hours. He really listened to me and was therefore able to provide me with exactly what I needed. His attention to detail, creativity, and talent make him a gem in the graphic design industry. And he goes beyond design. He is a talented writer and can cleverly communicate ideas, as well.

Kandice worked with me as my acting coach. She was brilliant. She knew how to break down the scene so easily and found things I never would have thought of. I went into my audition feeling confident and excited. I would recommend her to anyone. She is straightforward and clear. Loved working with her.

I worked with a resume writer who charged me 200USD for a professional resume. I have been a marketing and development consultant conducting business on an international level for over a decade. However I caught myself in between positions due to corporate downsizing. Upon receipt of this new resume written I shared it with J.Cole for his thoughts. I was having a hard time getting first interviews and responses from several submissions I'd made. Mr. Cole was very professional in his approach and within a day I had a new resume worth bragging about. I am currently working with him on my cover letter and other aspects of sourcing the right opportunity for my own personal development.

I found two ghostwriters that I was interested in, given their experience, their proximity to me and their prices. I interviewed both with my family at our home. Shannon was an immediate stand out. She arrived on time, she listened as we told her what we were interested in doing...an autobiography of my father who was in failing health and difficult to understand. Shannon explained how the process would work and gave us options as to how often we would meet, where we would meet, what could be done online, how long she expected the process to take and how much it would cost. We were in a hurry to get the book finished while my father could still enjoy it. It was a labor of love and Shannon quickly became invested in "our" project. She was very patient when trying to understand my father. She has a very professional yet warm personality so it was easy for us to tell our story. The good the bad, funny and sad. Sometimes we met at a Starbucks halfway between our homes, sometimes we emailed, sometimes we met at my parents home. By the time Shannon was putting the chapters together she realized that the book was more of a business "How To" book instead of an autobiography! My father was so excited at how it was being molded with his own words, stories and philosophies. Shannon never once showed any irritation at the many changes we made as each person in our family went though it and added to, or deleted from before it went to print. I have to say Shannon actually went over and beyond when it came to helping us make a cover for the book. She is a talented writer, understanding employee, creative, artistic, extremely knowledgeable in the many areas regarding the writing of a good book to it's final product. My father and our whole family was and are so pleased with the finished piece of my fathers life. People have asked us to use it as a text book in their collage business courses... We would have never guessed the turn it would take and may not have taken without Shannon's insight. If you could have seen my fathers smile when he saw and read his hard bound book you would agree that this project was one of the highlights of his life! And this man has had some pretty significant highlights. I wish I could show you our book but our family has chosen to keep it a private treasure for now. Shannon has become a friend to me. We have found that we have quite a few things in common, which comes from the closeness this project brings you together. I would highly recommend her and her work to anyone looking for a ghostwriter who is fairly priced, is an expert in her field, has a great work ethic and is easy to communicate with!

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.
