    Verified review

    As the lead writer, Kera demonstrated continuous dedication to excellence and attention to detail in all aspects of the role. Her devotion to creativity and communication has been a delight and extremely helpful with long distance work. It has been a pleasure working with Kera from the very beginning, and I look forward to working with her more in the future.

    About

    I am a salesperson at heart. Before I became a professional writer I was one of the top sellers at my previous jobs, including Abercrombie & Fitch and Aveda. Now I put those sales skills to work through the my writing pen.

    About

    I am an extremely driven professional that is tired of the rat race of commuting, punching a time clock, and living by someone else's schedule. I am a self-published eBook author & ghost writer on many topics. I love to create and design in many mediums: writing, web design, custom cake decoration, crafts, etc. I am deeply passionate about helping others, and have found that through my marketing & writing skills I can help others in their career search. Creating professional resumes, personal branding and online presence creation helps immensely in career searching. Writing SEO rich content, articles and blogs to ensure that clients have fresh, green content helps them stay high in search rankings. I can write on any topic and in any format that is required. My excellent research skills are a huge asset in topic diversity. I have also enjoyed ghost writing many eBooks for clients to self-publish.

    About

    Words are my pathway through life. I think in words, I communicate in words, I 'collect' new words for my vocabulary as a hobby. Writing, reading, editing, anything that involves working with language is incredibly fulfilling to me -- which makes my work something which I enjoy and at which I excel.

    About

    Ghostwriting, editing, marketing media, articles, business communications, and miscellaneous projects.

    About

    I am a Michigan-Tennessee based writer and photographer. I'm specifically dedicated to outdoors, adventure and wildlife travel writing and photography but am happy to venture into all genres.

    About

    Most people think they can write. Most people are wrong. You have only to watch television commercials or read on-line or print publications to see the glaring errors of style and grammar that pass for today's advertising and journalism. Worse for business professionals are the missed opportunities for connecting with potential customers because of poor presentation. My work is tailored to each client, technically proficient, and demonstrably stylish.

    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.
