My 4th grade daughter is struggling with reading comprehension/writing and has been working with Jill for a few months. Her essay responses have improved dramatically during her latest reporting period. My daughter has ADHD - Jill accomodates her with a lot of patience, breaks and little activities for the two hour session. We are very please to provide an excellent rating for Jill and highly recommend.

Dana helped me prepare for my TEDx talk, You Can Eat Your Cake And Have Enlightenment Too. I had to learn my talk by heart which made me super nervous as I am really bad at it. I have also recovered from a severe stutter in my childhood, which made me even more nervous to speak in public. Dana coached me step by step using her proven method, with writing the script to my talk, to learning the talk by heart, and then practicing intonation, movement during the talk and engagement with the audience. Dana's process was simple and allowed me to move forward a step at a time. In addition, Dana was sensitive to my challenges, supportive, encouraging, and had a healthy sense of humor. I loved working with her. The result, I rocked my talk. I was confident and projected my presence and power during my talk.

It was my pleasure to work with Lorrie from approximately 2010 to 2013. Lorrie was working as a Technical Editor on protocols and clinical study reports and I was a study manager. Lorrie was always professional and kind in her interactions. Her writing recommendations were very helpful and appropriate. I would recommend Lorrie without hesitation.

In addition to creating great content for you we also would share some tips to getting started with video data and Calls To Action.



My work stands out because I adjust my methods to suit the needs of the client(s). If I am tutoring someone with test anxiety, for example I utilize techniques which deal with the individual's fear of the test, so they may successfully complete the exam. Finally, I help my clients develop their own strategies for writing papers, in the future.

I have been writing since I was a young girl, and as an adult my passion for words never faded. I want to put that out into the world in a positive way by helping others who don't have such a way with words.I can do content writing, informative writing, blogging, ghost writing and much more. Please don't hesitate to contact me, thank you.


I hold a Master's degree in English Literature & Language from Rutgers-University. I will work with you on most any type of writing project (novel manuscripts, thesis-writing, smaller essays, book proposals, admissions essays, blog/web content, reports, etc). I'll do basic editing, write portions of your project, give you in-depth feedback and suggestions; I'll conduct outside research if necessary. How much I assist you is all up to you. I put the utmost dedication into every writing project I work on and believe that writing is best when it's a collaborative process. My experience: I've served as a Freelance Writing Assistant for two years and have worked on a variety of projects including the creation of a book proposal for a nonfiction study of African Americans settling the Western frontier and the proofreading/content-editing of a young-adult fiction novel. I also currently serve as an Editorial Assistant for Film International Magazine, where I proofread and edit content of article submissions. In addition, I write my own pieces for both the online-blog and printed-edition of the journal, while also co-authoring pieces with ESL contributors. FI is a bimonthly academic journal focusing on Film Studies. I have ample experience in writing&editing, working directly with clients to meet their goals. I am timely and efficient, and assure all clients that their projects will be completed within the deadline specified. I am also easy to get in contact with and quick to respond to emails. I make it my priority to be available for you, to take your work seriously, and I pride myself on my close attention to detail. (And as a bonus, I'm affordable! I will negotiate pricing based on how much you can afford, because I understand that writing isn't always immediately lucrative.)


We do branding consultation, creative direction, content writing and (in partnership with art director and graphic designer and videographer) web content, print, video advertising and promotion for startups and existing businesses and services. What sets us apart is our extensive experience across many industries and our training in traditional advertising. The basis of all our work is good listening and the development of strong ideas to set you apart and communicate clearly through all mediums.


I take a holistic approach to content creation and copywriting, and I genuinely wish to see my clients succeed. I stress open communication and holism in my work.


I have been an activist almost as long as I have been a writer. I have great planning skills as well as motivational! (you didn't think all those protesters showed up out of the blue did you??) I have a gift that allows me to write in just about any genre...some I just haven't tried yet. if I am researching for a book or a documentary or for that matter working on any project I give it my all because I really love all aspects of what I do.So unlike some people who just give recycled copy and half way investigated material I will always find away to bring a fresh and exciting approach to any project no matter what role I would be given .

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.
