Working with Paige has been amazing. As a marketing consultant I constantly have clients looking to articulate a specific message that they cannot do themselves. Paige is fantastic at understanding the voice and writing to match not only the message, but also the feeling.

Jeri has been an amazing asset in my ability to create my first stand-alone book Lessons From An Ordinary Life/Childhood. Her work is meticulous and careful. Her editor’s eye has given me the very thing I needed to make the book what it is. That is particularly important to me because I am dyslexic. She sees what I don’t and is able to correct my work in such a way that it still sounds like me. That is what sets her apart from other editors, her ability to do all that she does with her editing without losing the writer’s voice. That is a gift. I am very grateful for having found her and will be using her services for all my future projects.

I have used Amy Chattin to help me write two books and am in the process of writing a third book. Her typing and transcribing services are excellent. I could not have published my two books without her help. She not only can read my writing but can correct what I'm trying to write without my having to tell her. She's quick to get my work done and her prices are very reasonable. I would strongly recommend her to anyone who needs a quality typing service. David Minert

About

I'll read and edit your book or script. I have a Bachelor Degree with minors in Interdisciplinary Writing and Rhetoric and Geography. I enjoy science fiction and historical books and often read 1000 pages a week or more depending on the book and writer's style. I am pedantic, which means I sometimes find myself caught up in the details others overlook. Examples are: to, two, too, there, their, they're. Misspelled words and incorrect use of words stand out to me. Redundancy is another point I consider. If the author uses a word multiple times in a paragraph or too often in the book, I will point it out and help them find another suitable word. Grammar is important. I recently read a book where the author used a colloquialism outside the character's speech. I'm sorry folks but "unthaw" is not a word. If it were, it would mean freeze not defrost. I have tutored others in writing and English. I have also helped a blind author edit her manuscript.

About

I love to copy edit the way some people love to solve math problems or paint pictures - it’s an obsessive love that immerses me completely in the page. I find myself reaching for the red pen while reading newspapers, magazines, letters, emails……all of it. Copy editing is my crossword puzzle. It is my sudoku, my connect-the-dots, my word jumble. Because I am an editing addict, it benefits you. I turn out a good, clean product quickly and with a smile on my face. Copy editing can be as simple as scanning a document several times to make sure there are no misspellings, fragmented sentences, or commas sneaking in where they don’t belong. It can be as involved as restructuring entire sentences and paragraphs to get the very most out of a piece of writing as concisely as possible. It’s up to you, the client, to tell me how deep you want me to dive.

About

As a tutor, I have gotten great feedback from both students and other tutors. One tutor listened as I was explaining key ideas from Moby Dick to a student. Afterwards, she said, "If I had had a teacher like that I would have enjoyed school more." I try to be encouraging and creative when I tutor. I include visuals, word pictures, analogies to explain concepts. I also am passionate about learning new things and love to see students succeed, and I think that gets communicated through my time with them. With writing, I love good stories. I have read a lot since I was a kid and have taught writing, graded writing, and fine tuned the way I think about writing over the years. For me, it's important to say something clearly, concisely, and in a memorable way. In short, to say it/write it well. Because communication is such a big part of the way we do relationships and business, I strive to learn every day and work hard to communicate my own ideas effectively and help others to do the same.

About

I serve as somewhat of a midwife to books and other storytelling projects: respecting the shape they naturally take, observing before suggesting, and always keeping the writing experience in the hands of the writer. I specialize in working with autobiography, memoir, and personal narrative of all sorts; I believe that writing one’s life story is one of the bravest and most important things a person can do. Since 2001, I have worked individually with clients to produce and complete manuscripts of many different sorts. My goal as a writing teacher is to create a safe, inspiring place for writers to explore new projects and continue current ones. Past and upcoming group writing workshops include: Generative Writing, Memoir Writing, Writing the Pregnancy/Parenting Experience, Myths in Everyday Life, Writing about Wine.

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.
