Dr. Jay did an excellent job revising and updating my old outdated resume. The cover letter was even better than I expected. I plan on working with Sam on some other projects that I need writing assistance with. I highly recommend Jay Communication Solutions!

Dave was very helpful not only w/writing my resume but formatting it the way I wanted and also getting me a hard copy. Also, when I called him about not being happy w/the length of the first draft. He returned my call immediately and it was the way I wanted it the following day.

Cate did a great job with my resume. Quick and effective especially since I am changing careers and did not have a lot of experience in my new degree. She has made me look much more professional then I could have done left to my own resume writing. Cate also really researched my new profession to see what I would require to look good for a prospective employer. I very much recommend her and will use her talents again.

Elizabeth edited my short story. I worked on it for a few months and was uncertain that it was good enough to be submitted to a number of writing contests. Elizabeth skillfully edited and made suggestions and when she sent the finished version back to me, it all came together and I beamed with pride. I am very pleased with her professionalism and openness. She called me and gave me her personal phone number and told me to call her with any questions, this put me at ease and I knew that I had a chosen a great editor to work with. I will use her again and again! Victoria Riley

I highly recommend Nancy Sparrow and Sparrow Solutions for all business and household support! I have used their Business Services and their Personal Concierge services since 2008. I have 100% trust in them. Nancy is a dynamic person and I trust her and her team to do whatever it takes to get things done. On the personal side...they manage my credit cards, finances, my son's schedule, my calendar, travel arrangements, household projects, errands, storage units, etc. As a note...she is also a very solid editor of copy. On the Business Services side, SS provides admin support, inventory, operational support, business development and research, marketing and sales, writing and editing as well as lots of projects we don't have specific staff for. It would be a mistake not to go with Sparrow Solutions.

Kelly provides prompt, well considered edits, and make s process I usually despise far, far more enjoyable! She raises poignant questions about the text that I had not previously considered, reshaping writing to make it more approachable and concise for readers. And, as someone who is self-conscious about her writing, I really appreciate the balance of positive and negative feedback she gives!

I recently had Alicia re-write my resume. She takes a fun and collaborative approach to resume writing. After she and I talked about the the position I was looking for and the experience I had that was a match for the opening, she was able to create a resume that was polished and professional. It definitely stood out in a good way. What really blew me away were her tips on how to project confident body language before, during and after the interview. Before I met her I had no idea how quickly employers made snap judgement calls about candidates. I also didn't realize how much control I had over people's perception of me during the interview. With her tips in mind, I felt even more confident as I walked into my interviews. A lot of interview coaches talk about how to answer questions in the interview -which is definitely needed. However, I am unaware of any other coaches also offering body language tips. Alicia is the real deal. I highly recommend her for resume writing and interview coaching.

Overall, good quality in terms of content and snappy headlines. We had a bit of a snafu with our email server and lost some of his work, and had to go back and try to re-write some of it. Good turn-around time and attention to detail.

I hosted a small summer event at which Jo Ann Virden took photos. Afterward, she compiled the photos with related text and created a wonderful souvenir photo-booklet to commemorate the occasion. I've also read Jo Ann's book My Darling Dorothy, in which she develops an entire fictionalized story based on true-life letters she discovered. It is well written and entertaining. Jo Ann does a great job with writing and editing.

    Chelsey was extremely helpful with editing my paper. I have always struggled with writing and particularly grammar, being that English isn’t my 1st language. Chelsey made the process so easy. She gave me great suggestions while also maintaining the flow of my paper. Her professionalism and knowledge was greatly appreciated. I will definitely use her again and highly recommend her.

      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.
