My son needed help in 5th writing. We got help from AR once weekly for a few months. AR was professional and realized quickly what my son needed and was efficient in helping the quality of his writing inprove. She provided incentives for him to be engaged in the tutoring process. My son is now in honors writing in middle school and AR is a huge part of his improvement and success!

Kim is an excellent project manager, and has a commanding digital skill set including content creation, editing, marketing and publishing. Combined with her talent in photography, there's no project that Kim can't deliver on time, on quality, and on cost. Kim recently composed a professional Bio for my participation as a technology panelist. I was struggling to capture the right mix of education, skill and relevant experience. Kim found the balance I needed and made me shine (again).

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.

I have contracted JC Communications for so many jobs that is hard to describe them all, in fact, not enough room on this site. JC Communications with Janet Clark as the Principal, is by far the best contractor I have hired or worked with in the field of Public Relations, Writing in general, producing videos, writing screen plays, updating and creating web sites and creating marketing collateral material, proofreading (eagle eye she is!), and creative and technical writing. A wonderful experience and never late on deadlines and asks the right questions in order to provide the client with the best product!

I would recommend her to anyone and will continue to use her services for years to come!

Savan Associates

    Verified review

    Our daughter's on-line applications to two private high schools were comprised of a series of tiny boxes that limited the space for answers. We needed to fit everything we wanted to say into the paltry space allowed. Somehow, Savan Associates managed, by deadline, to help us pack our daughter's many attributes into the allowable space. She got accepted to both schools. The following year, Savan Associates helped us with our older son's on-line applications to the same two schools, working with us to condense his myriad talents into detailed yet succinct paragraphs. He, too, got accepted to both schools. Needless to say, we'll return to Savan Associates when the time comes to complete the private-school applications for our younger son as well as any other writing/editing we might need along the way. We can't give a better recommendation than that. > > Ricki T. > St. Louis, Missouri

      I had the opportunity to ask Dana to edit and proofread a short review paper I sent for publication. She was always available for questions and also constructive with her comments on my writing. As a non-native speaker of English, it is always good to know why some combinations of words are less frequent than others but seem ungrammatical. Her training in Lingusitics definitely helps her making that kind of commentary. I am pleased with her job and would recommend her to anyone who needs a sharp eye to look at their writing.

      About

      I don’t edit for writers, but with writers. Yes, I’ll make changes and comments and suggestions and omissions and give you my educated opinions, but writing is a communal activity. It exists in an interactive space, a place where a writer can explore all types of creativity. My job as your editor is to guide and shape your writing, to bolster what’s working and encourage it—and you—to keep going. You write. I observe, engage, and respond. Then together we comb out the tangles and add in some conditioner—because that’s what working with me as your editor will be like: we’ll smooth out the rough drafts, give it all a solid foundation so then the story can continue to grow. General edits and line edits. Private lessons: Tell Chelsey what you want to work on, and she'll choose a book that she thinks would be helpful in accordance to your wants/needs, and will read the book with you. She will assign weekly lessons and questions about different craft aspects in the book, as well as writing exercises. Each week, the writer emails Chelsey a piece of writing under 2000 words (either a single piece of writing or a selection of smaller pieces), and she'll do those hardcore edits. The amount of writing you send to Chelsey is up to you. Some people like to get comments on the writing exercises provided to them. Some like to submit the latest version of a piece she/he/ze is working on. Either of these options--or any other ones you might come up with--are fine. The focus here is on your writing. Chelsey will accommodate for and support all of the ways in which you want to learn and work.

      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.
