"I feel extremely lucky that Deborah DeNicola is editing my manuscript. She listened to my thoughts, was succinct in what was needed for improvement, including syntax, and made timely and important suggestions. This allowed my creative thoughts to improve the substance of my work without changing my voice." Cara N., website: readpoemswithme.com; email: readpoemswithme@gmail.com

Excellent service, Cierra is not only building my website , she also is an amazing writer. I needed someone to proof read and edit and write my bio and all my website content. Cierra edited all my content in a very professional way. We all know how grammar is a huge reflection of us and our business, my content definitely shows off that I am a trustworthy and educated individual. She sells me well.

Miss Deen edited my resume into a work of art - it's incredible! It's succinct and easy to read while looking very professional. She was able to consolidate my information all on one page, where before it wasn't quite a page and a half, without losing any vital information. Quick about getting the changes back to me, and easy to communicate my wishes toward. The modifications and layout are leaps ahead of what I had on my own. Extremely well done and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to revamp their old resume.

    During our publishing association over many years, Gloria Goss' excellent copy and editing skill have enhanced every project to which she has been assigned. Gloria has worked for me on books that encompass a wide range of specialities, particularly those with complex design, editorial, illustrative requirements, and a strict deadline schedule. Her excellent grasp of the responsibilities of a copy editor with attention to style, grammar, content, queries to the author, and mark up of the manuscript for the printer, would make Gloria an outstanding asset to you. Sincerely, Kathleen McCullough.

    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.
