I met with Jo Ann to gets some advice on getting another job. In just a few of sessions, she helped me to get a better understanding of how to market myself, and how to play up my strengths during an interview. I also hired her to revamp my resume, and it looks 100% more attractive now. I'm writing this one day after a job interview, and Jo Ann's tips helped me not to get stumped or tongue tied, and helped me use my past experiences to illustrate why I'd be great for the position, even though I didn't have the exact experience they were looking for. The three sessions I spent with Jo Ann were worth far more than I paid. Thanks, Jo Ann!

I did business with Lori after losing my job of 15 years, I needed to update and revamp my Resume along with creating a professional catchy cover letter. I was stuck with writers block and needed a jump start. I reached out to several resume writers and Lori is the one that had caring in her style and truly wanted to help. She made the whole process easy for me and not only helped me with my resume and cover letter she also gave me a pep talk that helped me get my mojo back. Lori is one of those persons that still exists that care about how and what she does. With her help I am back in business and options are opening up for me. I would rehire her in a second and if you need help writing a document or reviewing documents she is your person.

Ms. Halper scores highly in all five categories. Her editing encompasses logic, English usage, and general organization. She leaves an option for personal preference, as in, "You may prefer to say this this way, but I would prefer that way," and leaves the final decision to the author. She works diligently; I receive her edits in a timely manner. Her cost is reasonable. I feel lucky to have found such a competent resource.

About

I really haven't checked out many of the works by others who do what I do. I believe all competent writers who train their skills on helping others, attempt their very best. Some are better than others and all have a different perspective on related experience, format and nuance. If a client has a question on my choice of words to descibe their experience, I work with that client to help the final version sing.

I can do anything from critiquing to copyediting. I've been working as a editor for about two years now for a few upcoming authors. I'm flexible with schedules as long as the client is willing to work with me. I'm able to work mostly over the internet through emails and over the phone if needed.

About

I am a published author. My original book was over 3000 pages so I had to cut it down to a series. I have two books out and working on the third one (all from the original book.) I find more content each time I edit so I suspect a long series. I have always had a passion for writing and can usually write 'out of nowhere' which means I can take an idea and run with it. I am best with long papers but that doesn't mean I can't help with short ones. I am fluent in Spanish so I can translate documents or make new ones from scratch. I have also edited other author's work for compensation. I am also well versed in Photoshop if you have graphic design needs for your documents. I have done many brochures, manuals, etc. in my career and I find art is just as fun as writing.

About

I have been writing for years, and this allows me to write flexibly based on subject matter. My background in fiction writing means that I can write non-fiction from a variety of perspectives, in a myriad of voices, and for diverse purposes. My love of reading, and passion for storytelling, mixed with an interest in marketing means that I can edit fiction from the perspective of a reader, with respect to the writer's process, and explain the relationship between presentation of the story and the reader's perspective to the writer. This combination and holistic approach to editing can help turn a good story great. My familiarity with fiction editing means that I can edit articles, essays, and assorted non-fiction works and shorter fiction with rapid speed that also does not take away from the quality of thought and attention to detail. Whatever you need written, I can write. Whatever you need me to edit, I can hone. My goal is to work with my clients to realize their vision.

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.
