I highly recommend SkyeWriter. I needed my resume updated to apply for a new job, but didn't leave myself with a lot of time. As a result, I had to ask for a "rush" job. SkyeWriter provided me with my new resume within my tight time frame. It was well written, looked very professional and so much better than the resume I had been using for years. Skye listened to what I wanted and translated it beautifully into the finished product. Thanks again SkyeWriter!

Lee Brown is fast, funny, intuitive and able to establish a rapport in seconds. His work is intelligent, insightful, innovative and a dozen other words that start with "in" - Of all the creatives with whom I've had the opportunity to work — as an actor, writer, producer, director and videographer, Lee Brown is the one who writes the best work for me in my "voice," seemingly effortlessly, (—although he burns the midnight oil to make it perfect.) When working with Lee, our discussions quickly reach a place of interactive "short-hand" when dealing with ideas and concepts. Lee makes the collaborative process a true joy. Work should always be this much fun. It is RARELY this fun. I'm only sorry that we're on opposite coasts or we'd be working together on a much more regular basis. Whether it's film, television, documentary, instructive or interactive video, an essay, a novel, or a fast short story or article; the creative writing world needs more from R. Lee Brown!

Jeff Johnson is an incredible public speaking coach. Over the years, he helped me on numerous public speaking engagements and worked with me on technique, skill, and charisma. Jeff has years of experience as a public speaker with presentations and keynotes to audiences exceeding 15,000. He is energetic, passionate, and a true teacher in every sense of the word. I highly recommend him as a public speaking coach for anyone looking to improve their skills on the stage.

About

Penny Fletcher is a freelance writer with an extensive background in newspapers, magazines, web writing and books. Her proven creativity as a fiction writer and accuracy as a photojournalist and news reporter are evidenced by the many testimonials and awards on her website, Linked-In, and the sites for which she currently writes. Her books are proudly represented by agent Terrie Wolf, a.k.a Literary LLC, and she currently writes for The Observer News and Riverview Current, both of which have print and online editions. As a writer, editor and Bureau Chief, her background includes Amazon Books, Media General Communications, Inc., Sunbelt Newspapers and The Tampa Tribune. Now working exclusively with authors in every genre, she can help in any phase of your project from basic editing to manuscript development, scene setting, point-of-view, and writing natural dialogue. She explains each suggested change in detail; red-line edits full-length manuscripts with up-front fees beginning at $2 per page; and also prepares professional book proposals and writes press releases and jacket copy that can draw buyers' eyes to your book. She never charges authors for edits by the hour because authors - especially new ones - need to know exactly what they are spending before they begin a project and how much they must budget for it.

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.
