Shelly herself is an excellent writer, both technical and creative. She knows the rules of conventional English (says the survivor of eight years of Catholic school grammar, syntax, and sentence diagraming!) Even more important to me, as a veteran sixth grade teacher who has watched her as a parent-volunteer writing teacher, school librarian, play director, and copy editor, she can engage large or small groups of kids and inspire even the most reluctant writer to pick up a pencil and start writing! She has a wonderful sense of humor, which shows up in her own writing, and often in her students'. Additionally, she is professional, reliable, and intelligent enough to critically evaluate/edit college-level, business, and professional writing.

I contacted Shane to help with my social media efforts for an online travel agency I work with that specializes in family travel. I had talked to a few other "social media experts" on my quest to find the right person and after talking to Shane, I knew I had the right one. He was very knowledgeable about the type of people that use each social media platform and how best to market to each platform. He even gave us a quick analysis of which social media platforms we should spend less resources on because the people on those platforms were unlikely to engage with us. I am looking forward to more of your clever and creative ideas as we continue our project together!

I know Breyer Editorial Services as Bo Breyer. I was introduced to her by another writer in my group whom Bo had worked with. I have to say that Bo has a real talent for editing and a very perceptive, deft touch. She doesn't take over or try to reshape the work. She tries very hard to understand the point, mood, character, etc., that you're trying to create or get across, and very skillfully shows you the parts that work and the ones that diverge or are redundant or superfluous. When you step back and look at what she's marked up, it invariably feels like it's exactly what you would have seen, and would have wanted to trim, two months or so downstream. The editing process felt very collaborative process. I'm working on a sequel, and I will certainly ask her to edit it as well when the time comes. Will Fournier,

Skills for Change coaching is about teaching clients some tools, practices and assumptions to help them get what they need/want from daily living. A core belief is that people are inherently good and inherently sane. How you treat yourself and everyone else relies on this. There is no one up/one down relationship between the coach and the client. A simple worksheet contract is filled out initially to clarify what you want to change in your life. You give the issue that's been bugging you shape by writing it down. Then the Skills for Change coach guides you to identify: - obstacles you face - resources you have - what you have power over and what you don't - depletion of energy and replenishment and how they affect your experience - internalized messages or beliefs that oppress you and ways to manage them - the art and magic of saying "no" - the value in asking for "100% of what you want, 100% of the time" and its benefit to everyone - the patterns and pitfalls of "rescuing" family and friends You learn ways to negotiate effectively and compassionately. I am learning from a coach who puts them into practice every day, Molly Fisk. Molly is a pleasure to work with. Being a poet and a writer as well as a coach, she is able to pare down concepts to their essentials. There is no off-putting jargon, she's funny and kind. She is worthy of your trust and confidence. The tools you are given can be so marvelously effective in getting unstuck and on your way. - Pat Sharp

Barb helped me out on many fronts.  She spent considerable time reorganizing my current resume. She was able to take my skills and put them in a concise manner so that a recruiters can easily scan and see pertinent information.  I tried MANY resumes on my own and was not able to even get an interview. But after resume sessions with Barb, I got an interview to my dream job.   Even further, with Barb's creative interview tips I became a finalist for that dream job.  I got interviewed by 5 separate managers and those tips seemed to have got me far.  The outcome is still pending, but Barb got me further than I ever did on my own.  I'm happy to recommend Barb's resume writing and interview preparation services.

Sunshine is just the right mix of professionalism, organization, creativity, fun and personality! She made it a priority to get to know me and the needs of my business early on in our relationship, and since then she is always one step ahead of me in brainstorming, planning, and making things happen!

    Sue Rhodehouse is an excellent tutor! She has vast experience both in teaching high school English at all levels, and as a newspaper journalist. I worked for her as a reader for essays and exams. She gives thoughtful, creative assignments which are challenging and fair to her students. She has also tutored many high school students one on one. I think any student's high school experience would be greatly enhanced by the competent support provided by Sue's Tutoring!

    I have worked with Geoff Sakala and his team at Click Spring through a non-profit that I was on the board for, as well as consulted with him for our small business. Click Spring is so creative and at the same time detail oriented! We loved the way that they worked with us, and we got extraordinary results. I highly recommend Geoff and his entire team!

    I’ve worked with Charlotte in the past on several projects and was always impressed with her and her creative ability. Charlotte never seems to get caught up into group think and was always someone I could count on to give me honest feedback. I’ve met very few people with her wit, charm, integrity and willingness to help no matter the task.

    About

    I offer 10 years of experience in creating original, unique, quality content. I understand the importance of constant quality content. The difference between good copy and bad copy can be detrimental when it comes to conversions, leads, engagement and ranking in search engines. Good copy takes time, and sometimes research, to craft. My job is to make you and your company shine through words. Why have low-quality web or blog content when you don't have to? I believe every company has a good story, and it shouldn't be masked by bad grammar and hard-to-read copy. Specialties: - Content curation - Website copywriting - SEO content writing - Blogging - Article writing - Email marketing - Proofreading and editing - Revisions / Rewrites - Creative copywriting - Manuscript evaluation - Biographical/Personal statement development - Resume writing

    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.
