Faith E. says, "Rose was just the editor I didn't know I needed. She is proficient in English, has great work quality, and brings great value to the Author and manuscript. She went above and beyond making suggestions to improve the spacing of characters, timeline, and cohesiveness of my 50,000 words memoir. Much of my sentences were run-off sentences. She had a level of attention to detail that elevated my book. She guided me and together we improved sentences to make them flow enabling the paragraphs to be clearer and more effective. There is great value, tips given to improve my writing ability as well as helpful publishing resources. She is nonjudgmental and meets the author where they are in their writing and take their work to professionalism. I truly admired her ability to keep the author's voice throughout the story, while improving the quality of the manuscript. We are all working on a story that we hope will inspire the world. So, you have started writing your story only to feel frustrated, or stuck on the right grammar, or word to say. You are concerned about the spelling, and you try to make it all make sense you began to feel overwhelmed. This part of the writing process was where I found myself after writing my 50,000 words memoirs for over ten years. Fast forward. after trying to work with multiple editors with no positive result. I began concern. Until I found Rose on Thumbtack and she restore my faith in the editor and the writing process with her critical yet caring nature. She will give your work readability and flow. I am learning that writing is a team effort. It starts with you the author and next finding a great editor with killer skills in the English writing format. You will not find an editor who will care for your work as much as you do Roes. Rose is the best to work with and I cannot wait to work with her on the next book! Thank you once again for a job well done!"See more

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.
