Free Range Editorial was the first editing service I ever considered. I felt comfortable immediately. Julie wants to help make my stuff read more smoothly while not changing my voice. She knows how to do this. I have now had her edit 7 books (some fiction, some non-fiction.) She is awesome. Julie honestly has made me a better writer because I learn from her edits. I highly recommend Free Range Editorial.

WM Designs will make your story come alive. As a writer, I have an idea of the worlds and people I create, but I didn't really know what "she" looked like until my book cover showed up in my inbox. I've never been disappointed with work I've commissioned here and I will continue to be a loyal customer as my written words grow.

I hired Jennifer Curasco to create a book cover for my business book. She completed the design in a week. I was impressed with how Jennifer was able to transform the content of the book into a graphic that communicates what is going on in the minds of small business owners. She researched the topic, selected colors options and told me how colors communicate. She showed me several versions of the graphic and layout and responded quickly to my edits. Jennifer was very professional and completed the project on time. Her design quality is excellent.

I asked Helen to be a "beta reader" for my book. Although this was slightly outside her advertised expertise of book editing, she agreed. I found Helen to be thorough and thoughtful. She was extremely easy to work with, providing detailed, higher level story information. I can definitely recommend her services and look forward to working with her again in the future.

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.
