First let me begin by saying I have not had good experience with resume writers, but, Kelly is an amazing career coach. She actually listens and re-wrote my long 2-page piecework resume into a very concise and succinct document that will make through Applicant Tracking Systems and someone will actually pick and read. I am extremely happy with the results. I feel proud to have that document as my resume. She re-wrote my cover letter to a readable, precise and targeted letter. I highly recommend her.

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!

In her capacity as Arts and Entertainment Editor for Creative Loafing, Julie supervised the coverage of our first annual SunLIt Festival in St Petersburg. Julie not only quickly grasped the possibilities for articles on this new and original event but also found creative ways to present it. She collaborated with the photographer and the actors during our photo shoot to produce a variety of choices for illustrating the article. She conducted thorough research, and her resulting story not only fully highlighted this fledgling literary effort but also put it into the context of the region's ongoing attention to letters. Julie is a fine and talented writer and editor.

    Price is negotiable, let me know your budget. I've written many, many web content/SEO articles for various websites including livestrong.com, ehow.com and usatoday.com 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.

As a writer, editor and Bureau Chief, her background includes Amazon Books, Media General Communications, Inc., Sunbelt Newspapers and The Tampa Tribune.

    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.
