What a pleasure to work with Christopher! He's such a professional. Like many writers, I'm quite sensitive about sharing my work with others, but Christopher was thorough, offering lots of insight and suggestions for improvement mixed with keen observations and delicate compliments. He clearly knows what he's doing. I hope to collaborate with him again.

Caitlin is awesome to work with. We were co-writers for the Loh Down on Science as well as Managing Editors (MEs) at different times. While she was an ME, she was a great leader and was super innovative and organized. During my term as ME, Caitlin was very professional and always got her work done on time. Although she had two internships and was in graduate school (a full-time job), she always turned in quality work. Furthermore, she was great at working in a team and was always a pleasure to work with.

Finding someone to do my web site was kind of hit and miss. I received three or four quotes and chose the mid-range quote, which as Jicelyn. Trouble was, she is in Aurora and I’m way southwest, so we met halfway. First impressions count. She is not only a very attractive young woman, but very professional. Within a half hour she had mapped out a proposal for a design. Within 3 or 4 days she sent me a draft of my site. Eye-popping gorgeous. We worked through a few changes, then she finished. I asked some other writers to review it and received nothing but positive feedback, “Very attractive”, “professional” among others. Check it out for yourself, demorley.com.

Laura went through our business plan detail by detail. Her eye for formatting and grammar gave this plan the edge it needed to be presented to a professional audience. I plan on hiring Laura to edit all the content for our business, from proposals to blog postings. I highly recommend Laura to any writer, business owner or busy professional that needs a second set of eyes on their important documents.

Jody is a great tutor. She helped my son with his reading, spelling, writing, and math. My son's teacher suggested Jody and her tutoring services. His teacher said Jody was excellent at filling in the missing pieces for our son. The reading intervention program Jody used helped improve our son's grades by helping him find certain letter sounds and how to say them. Jody taught him over 25 spelling rules that he still uses. Vocabulary was another important subject she helped our son with. Jody later helped our son become a better writer by showing him how to write sentences, paragraphs, and reports. Math was the other subject our son needed help with. The level Jody put him in was comfortable and he knew the steps. The steps to the math became harder but Jody took time to explain the steps so my son understood it. Call Jody to help you! She is friendly, patient, smart, and easy to talk to.

I had the chance to work with Michael on a number of occasions, and he is always spot-on with great strategy, content and ideas. I especially think he is a gifted writer and problem-solver, and is probably one of the more resourceful people I've worked with in recent memory. He's very well-versed for digital engagements, including copywriting, content strategy, and certain types of transaction content and micro-copy. My only criticism is that he no longer lives close to me, so I can't meet with him face to face. But he's wonderful to work with regardless.

Incredibly informative and helpful. Margaret provided excellent feedback and was constructive in her editing. My essay was much more cohesive because of her editing, but still allowed my own voice to show through. I would highly recommend her for any writing or editing assistance!

    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 have worked with Julian for the last 18 months and have been highly impressed with his abilities. Being in the wireless/network industry, I needed a writer to take very complicated issues and topics and put a great spin on things so the average marketing person would understand. He always provides outstanding results and I highly recommend his work.

    Mara Abbott was the key note speaker at the AISTS Graduation Ceremony this year, in February at the Olympic Museum in Switzerland. Mara gave a professional and passionate speech about her journey as an athlete and a heartfelt anecdote on her most recent experience at the Rio Olympic Games. Mara's words of encouragement and motivation were definitely heard by all present in the audience, which was over 200 people. Her determination and passion that she injected into her speech gave our graduates a sense of purpose as they set out on their new challenge. Thank you Mara for sharing your journey with us all.

    **Send me a page or two or your work. I'll edit it for free. That's the best way to pick your writer/editor -- see firsthand what they do and how they do it.** I provide writing, editing, and writing instruction services to businesses, universities, government agencies, and non-profits nationwide. I’ve done work for dozens of marketing firms, Unisys Corporation, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Air Force, CH2M HILL, Prentice Hall, LexisNexis, HP, Webroot, VMware, and Adobe, and I’ve written and edited corporate, government, technical, and marketing documentation throughout my career. Let’s just say my work has run the gamut. Back in the day, I developed and taught a course in technical writing for Pentagon personnel. I also spent three years teaching courses in academic writing, public speaking, and literature to students at the University of Virginia and three years teaching writing at the University of Colorado, Boulder. I earned a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, Language, and Research from the University of Virginia. My GRE Verbal test score is in the 99th percentile. Why share a GRE score? Because it assesses ability in language usage, grammar, and punctuation. I know my stuff. I live in the grand and gorgeous state of Colorado, and in my free time I work on my novel, travel extensively in the US (47 states and counting), travel as much as possible around the world, and bike around Denver on one of my fabulous cruisers. Unless my bikes have been stolen. They’re stolen a lot.

    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.
