I strongly believe that the ability to write an effective and targeted resume to get the attention of potential employers requires special skills, and Michele definitely possesses these skills. Within a week after she completed my resume, I landed a new job that fit my interests, skills and experience. I am extremely satisfied with Michele's work as a resume writer and highly recommend her.

Lane C.
Verified review

Shery Scott was tasked with assembling runbook documentation for a very large healthcare provider from miscellaneous documentation scattered through at least two large departments. With no context other than the words on the page, she was able to correctly organize the information at hand to begin to form a coherent tale of each of the assigned runbooks. When you think about this remember Shery never saw any of the products whose data she organized. I was delighted by her work, and her very non-nonsense approach to documentation. I suspect any competent manager would like to have Shery as a reliable team member.

Don is a considerate, accurate and helpful editor. I couldn't ask for better in thems of helpful objectivity as regards his hand on my copy. Addtionally, his supplemental comments are always useful and thought-provoking. Any writer with access to his talents is fortunate indeed.

Verified review

WEBivia is fantastic! Simon created my initial website in a matter or weeks, giving it a much more professional look than what I had created a few years ago. He recently "upgraded" the site (it was actually a complete redesign) and did a great job on this version too. Simon is very responsive and does quality work. Any time that I need a change made or have questions about how to update the content myself, he is there to help. He cares about his clients and this is demonstrated in his patience, advice, and guidance. He is awesome!

I was an associate of Rena at Harris Stratex Corp. She was responsible for documentation, both technical and user facing. We worked together for several months and I found Rena to be a clear and concise writer, atypically technically competent, with excellent managerial instincts. I enjoyed working with Rena and would love to do so again. I recommend her highly.

Colleen J McCullough

    Verified review

    I have had Colleen's help in editing two very different projects: a business proposal and a website, so this is almost two reviews in one. Both were done VERY well - she is a strong technical writer with an eye for professional writing. The website, which was to promote an event I created, was completely different. I wanted it to be really fun and informative. Colleen is creative with an awesome sense of humor and she was perfect for the job. She took my dull content and turned it into something that was actually fun to read. Versatile, fast and smart. I strongly recommend her for your editing or writing needs.

        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.
