Kelly G. Sedlak is a true professional. I want to commend her for being able to highlight my strengths and abilities. The Cover letter and resume she created for me placed me in a position where I am able to market myself MUCH better. As I showed my family the great work Kelly provided; their initial response was, “It’s so easy on the eyes while being clear and concise. I did a lot of research on professional resume writers. After speaking and meeting with her. I ABSOLUTELY HIGHLY RECOMMEND HER. Should anyone care to call me with any questions please do not hesitate. My name is Patricia and my cell is 347-752-2878. Great things in life don't come so easily. Kelly, I want to thank you for the time, care and professionalism you have provided me.

Julie Garisto, as Arts Editor for Creative Loafing in Tampa Bay, FL, has done an incredible job at turning the rambling musings of my artist statements and press releases into event listings and articles that generate both excitement for and insight into my work. Further, her guidance at Creative Loafing leaves a reader with the impression that Tampa Bay is a vital cultural hub. Julie Garisto, both as a person and because of her writing and editing skills, is an indispensible member of the Tampa Bay community.

Merry was incredible! She was fast, comprehensive and extremely helpful in editing my book. She is very fair with her prices, which was great because I don't have much to shell out. Merry also was more than happy to give me a few helpful tips as I am a new writer. I obviously wholeheartedly recommend her.

Jeff has a gift for coaching others to achieve their greatest potential. He has served as my public speaking coach and helped me to achieve a national title in extemporaneous public speaking, as well as national leadership positions. He is able to identify your strengths and then hone those in order to take your speaking abilities to a new level. He is fun, easygoing and works diligently to help you reach the highest success possible. He is definitely my go-to for all things related to public speaking and presenting!

Stacy's expertise was very helpful.


Professional award-winning writer and published author in psychology (dissertation) and academic journal article, published two romance novels and one young adult. Professional marketer/advertiser in health care and real estate. Ghostwriter. Textbook reviewer for major publisher. Reviewer of scholarly journal. I am also a college instructor in psychology. I have designed online courses. Web design experience. Blogger. A total word geek.


Experience is the difference. It drives my professional skills and qualities. They have been tested in the crucible of the competitive marketplace for many years and by the rigorous expectations of hundreds of clients. Throughout my career, as a professional writer, editor, creative director and marketing and advertising consultant, I have developed much higher standards of vocabulary, grammar, syntax and punctuation; a knowledge base that has prepared me to assimilate easily new concepts, ideas and topics; the versatility to translate those concepts into any written form or media for any target audience; and the dependability of a senior-level professional who has delivered thousands of projects on time and on budget.


I review things until I happy with them. I tend to have four reviews of something to make sure I am happy to put my name on it.

Price is negotiable, let me know your budget. I've written many, many web content/SEO articles for various websites including, and to name a few. My articles are published in my name as well as those I've been a ghostwriter for. I've worked on blogs for travel, camping, parenting and many other topics. I'm not a pro in the sense of a college degree in journalism but I've got years of experience and have been published many times. I just feel in love with writing. I also wrote for local newspapers here in the Tampa Bay area where I've had the cover story a few times.


I have been a writer/editor/proofreader for nearly 30 years. As a senior copywriter at the St. Petersburg Times newspaper, I won more than 20 awards for the Times Publishing Company for in-paper advertising campaigns, media kits, flyers, brochures, TV and radio spots, and much more. Since leaving the Times, I've worked at writing/editing and proofreading jobs on a freelance/contract basis. A book I edited recently was published in early 2015.


I'm unique - spent years as a full-time writer/journalist in Manhattan. Just finished up a social media job in France.

I am a professional writer and educator with a Master's of Education in Community Health Education. Currently teaching at the college level: Chronic and Communicable Diseases; Health Statistics; and Personal Health and Wellness. I am available for health and medical writing assignments, as well as resumes, cover letters, editing, ghost writing and other writing requirements you may have. My rates are always negotiable.


My years of experience make it easy for me to write articles that satisfy my clients expectations. I understand the importance of doing extensive research, and I produce original documentation that is based on it.


I am a Tampa based Freelance Writer. My career began 3 years ago when I helped a friend in school with their thesis dissertation. After that, I realized I had a talent for writing, especially when other college students began to come to me for help, and my writing skills awarded them As.


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. Custom quotes for all services are done by contract before the work begins.


I do crisp and clean copy for web content, scripts (30-second to 90-minute documentaries), books (ghost, co-author, and full authorship), press releases, magazines and trade articles, and original stories for all occasions.


I am providing writing and editing for resumes, webpage contents, blogs, advertisements, and review for re-writes.

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.
