Verified review

Marian is one of the most ambitious, proactive and provocative writers I've ever had the pleasure to work with. While writing for DBW, she did a great job of eliciting valuable insights from industry thought leaders, identifying worthwhile new media opportunities for authors, and walking the walk when it comes to social media. Don't be fooled by her age; she's smart beyond her years.

Ellie Schamber mentored me through my graduate prerequisite courses in Psychology as well as my Ph.D. dissertation. She also edited many of my papers and the dissertation. Ellie is a very good writer, and she did an excellent job of both guiding me and editing the manuscript. The dissertation was approved and praised by the academic dean for its writing as well as the content. We are now collaborating on a book, and I am very pleased with her ability to understand abstract ideas and articulate them clearly. Ellie always came on time, over the period of several years, and provided me with the highest quality work.

      After seeing several books that Amie Hill has edited in our local bookstore, I asked her to review a memoir I'm working on. She provided excellent line editing and also provided some developmental ideas. While I'm still working on my book, I do recommend her services. She's both skillful and gentle and I believe other writers will find her editing enhances their work.

            Katie helped me so much in high school with writing- both for school and for creative purposes. With her helpful instruction, I was able to move past writer's block and actually write what I meant rather than get stuck in word choice or syntax, which she also helped me with during editing instruction. Katie was invaluable during my high school experience and without her, I would not have been able to succeed in college or have been able to write coherent and passionate application essays. She's also great at research and when I was assigned huge research projects for AP U.S. History or even for Spanish class, she was able to help me use library databases and archives to find primary source material.

            About

            I am mostly a writer, but I am also a double or triple bottom line business creator. I develop new and exciting ideas for highly innovative, socially responsible projects. Check out what I'm doing with Green Gold, which is the first ever book on pairing honeys and cheeses, but be prepared; this is not just a cookbook... it is about food and community empowerment, in its own way like my Nickel-a-Meal website campaign against obesity. Food is the next great equalizer of community involvement, and I bring that message home.

            About

            If you're looking for a strong writer and editor who's creative but also meets his deadlines, let's talk. My area of content expertise is Corporate Responsibility (CR)/sustainability. I do this work for large corporate clients; much of my writing and editing goes into annual CR reports. But I'm also a versatile researcher, writer and editor. I've written eveything from feature articles to strategic recommendations for the U.S. State Dept. to a pair of political- environmental novels* that drew excellent reviews in the New York Times and People magazine ("Page Turner of the Week"), among others. I have also written corporate communications and marketing copy including web content, press releases, executive addresses, brochures and FAQs. As an editor, I love working with a document to discover the concise, clear narrative it contains. During the last year I've edited long CR reports for clarity, content and tone as well as for typos and grammar. I'm a big fan of the AP Style Guide, with a few exceptions. Finally, I'm pretty good to work with. I practice active listening, and can work independently or in close collaboration with a client.

            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.
