Eric's writing and editing skills are superb. He not only excels at professional and technical writing, he also is a very gifted creative writer. He brings those skills to all his projects, with the result that even professional or legal writing is lively and compelling. He knows how to tell a story, and this ability enlivens all of his work, from an article or legal brief to web content or a piece of fiction. He is also an astute editor and can help other writers hone their craft and take their drafts to a higher level. Eric is a great communicator, and he is very skilled at tailoring his work to help a client reach the target. It has truly been a pleasure to work with Eric.

Cheryl was fantastic to work with! She had a great way of going through my story and enhancing it with little tweaks and grammatical fixes without changing the storyline. She got it done quickly and efficiently and was very good about communicating with me on how everything was coming along. I really appreciated all the time and effort that she put into making my manuscript even better. I would definitely work with her again!

About

I'm a writer. I write basically biographies. My books are listed on Amazon under C.F.Stewart; as is my author's profile. My latest effort is doing very well on the east coast. Sales in the west have been mostly in Las Vegas because the gentleman i wrote about was a professional golfer who was associated with some of the more unsavory characters in LV history. To be fair, he was also revered by several of the more illustrious celebrities to grace the Las Vegas strip. Reviews of my work have been very satisfying.

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.
