I definitely recommend Laura for assistance with writing/delivering a speech. She tailored the experience to meet my vision and was able to quickly deliver quality results. Regardless if you know exactly what you want or have no idea-she will guide you through the process from start to finish! Her qualifications are not easily found and combined with her genuine attitude of wanting you to be successful makes all the difference.

Our first meeting was great. He is a conscientious tutor. He prepared some practices for me to learn about my skills such as listening, speaking, reading, and writing. And then he will customize a plan for me, according to my performance in our first meeting.

I was frustrated with progress on my dissertation when I was gifted time with a dissertation coach. Stephanie Latkovski was responsive, attentive, insightful, and incredibly helpful. She got me past being stuck and feelings of inadequacy to focusing on the job to be done. Not only did I begin to feel better about myself as a writer, I became more productive. Three years after I graduated with my doctoral degree, my dissertation was published. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with such a great writing coach!

I initially experienced Tammy's writing coaching as a participant in her "Crafting and Inspirational Blog" class. Her teaching style is dynamic and experiential, giving great examples for the concepts she teaches and then encouraging her students to try their hand at it. Her follow-up and suggestions are always beneficial. My experience with that class was so great that I hired Tammy. We meet over the phone weekly to edit my newsletter articles. When I am struggling to find the words for what I want to say, she asks exactly the right questions to enable me to find those words. And, when I'm having a hard time coming up with a topic, we brainstorm ideas. In addition, Tammy writes a weekly newsletter with writing tips that help solidify what I am learning. The process is always full of learning and fun. Tammy is absolutely fabulous in every way!

Laura helped me with an essay I was writing for admission into the nursing program at UW Parkside. She was very quick with her responses back to me and had a lot of wonderful feedback to help me better my essay. I really appreciate the time she took to help me.

I recently published a book, and Janet was an absolute DREAM to work with as the editor! Seriously. My greatest concern with this project was wanting to see and hear my voice come through on the pages. Janet made that happen! I could hear my voice come to life. Not only was the finished manuscript flawless, no errors, but there was also a TON of amazing feedback and respect of my vision for the book. Her feedback was honest and constructive, a passionate critique of my writing style, and there were even a few laughs for the both of us. What a joy to work with! AND, Janet even went above and beyond to create a unique and personalized video tutorial to guide me through the process of reviewing her edits in Word. Can't say enough to express how happy I am with the results of working with Janet!

Cindy is the best of the best! She is someone you just want to get to know. She handled everything so beautifully and led us through it each step of the way. Our wedding was better than we could have ever hoped for! She made the entire wedding so personal and even wrote the most incredible poem about our lives together. We are going to have it framed as a lifelong reminder! With Cindy performing our marriage, we always felt comfortable that everything was in control and would go well - and believe me, that's a great feeling! After all, your wedding is your most important day! Cindy doesn't only have a lot of experience marrying people, but she has been a speaker for years! So she is very used to talking to big crowds. This was so wonderful, because she came across so natural, she could be heard well, and really knew how to "present" the ceremony so that it all comes off without a problem. She is also great for those awkward "on the spot" moments where no one knows what to do or say. (We had one of those with my mother-in-law, but Cindy handled it beautifully!) Everyone was so pleased and very impressed. She led us through our rehearsal so we all knew what to do and what to expect. She helped us to write our vows without being intrusive or pushy. She was sooooo helpful! She organized our music for us, helped us to chose readings and just put together and overall ceremony that blew us away! Oh, and she also created our wedding bulletins! They were really awesome! I just loved them!!! I will recommend Cindy to everyone (and do). She is that on-in-a-million type of person you just hope will come into your life. We will always be grateful that she came into ours!!!!

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.
