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!

Frank is a wonderful tutor! I really needed help writing a paper for one of my English classes, specifically with structure and concluding a paper. When Frank and I met he was right on time, which showed me he cared and was professional. Through the tutoring session, I learned so many things about writing a paper that I never knew. He helped me to feel confident about what I was writing. I definitely would refer him to anyone.

I've worked with Lynnet of Lynnet's Professional Touch on many occasions and her service has always exceeded my expectations. I reach out to her often for various editing and writing projects related to my own business and she is always timely and accommodating of my turnaround time. She's great to work with because she asks good questions and always overdelivers. It's clear that she loves what she does and I appreciate that as a repeat client. Her early learning resources are impressive. Her flash cards are premium quality and since they are laminated my daughter has spilled stuff and got them dirty but I just wipe the off and keep using them. I've purchase the ABC, colors, and number flash cards for my little one and will be back for more. When my school-aged kids needed a private tutor I reached out to her. She was patient, she listened to their struggles, helped them work through them, and was prompt and prepared each session. She researched anything she was unfamiliar with and helped my kids develop their research skills as well. She was great and well worth it. Lynnet's Professional Touch offers so many enriching services and delivers every single time. Her work is top notch and her rates are well within reason for the quality of her work. You will get more than what you pay for and you'll be glad that you hired her.

    I am a doctoral candidate working on my literature review. I contacted Anne, who replied immediately, and was eager to learn how she could help. We had an introductory meeting and found Anne to be knowledgeable about the writing process and interested in the overall project. The second time we met we tacked my literature review for which she had great insight into how to change my outline. Anne has a natural grasp for writing and helping one to see how the flow works together. I will continue to use Anne and recommend her for editing and brainstorming. Rose M

    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.
