About

I write and edit for all types of media: print, web, broadcast, etc. I have written creative short-stories and heavy-duty research papers and all that lies between. I have done copy for ads, public relations and marketing. I have edited everything from novels to news stories with the same professional attitude that says, "I will not stop until this is as close to perfect as I can get it." But, at the same time, I never miss a deadline or sacrifice high-quality just to save some time. I am fair when it comes to pricing, I always check with others in the business to make sure that I am asking a fair price or being offered fair payment. There is no job too large or too small for me to help you with. I am especially talented at person-based feature stories for public relations use, but as I said, I can write anything for any medium and any audience.

About

I encourage individuals to use writing as a therapeutic technique, and I copy edit papers of any kind for individuals, businesses, etc. Workshops are available.

About

If you are looking for a nonfiction book editor, I’m the best (Google me). My edits are so seamless that authors often exclaim, “You make me sound like me—only better!” They also marvel at my ability to catch discrepancies, inconsistencies, and redundancies often hundreds of pages apart. As a former newspaper editor and reporter, I know how to help a writer tell a story—or explain how to do something—with accuracy and precision. And I never miss a deadline.

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.
