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

I am a young, energetic writer with an M.A. in English and am looking for an opportunity to employ my craft across a variety of platforms. I am experienced at working with a multitude of people and genres, while honing skills highlighting an insightful attention to detail as an Adjunct Professor of English at a local university. Benjamin's Cure Imagine you are a healthy and vibrant eight-year-old. Suddenly you find yourself in the hospital being poked and prodded by insensitive doctors, unable to figure out what ravaged your immune system to the point where even the common cold is lethal. No longer are you allowed to run and play with friends, as fear keeps them at arm's length. People imagine the worst about your condition, because so little is known about this disease. How do you cope, when all the grown-ups answer all of your questions with, "I don't know?" That's what happens to Benjamin in David Saar's play The Yellow Boat. A story based on Saar's own experience with his son Benjamin, a hemophiliac who was diagnosed with AIDS in the early 80s, when doctors didn't have any answers, let alone cures, for the young boy. The IPFW Theatre Department performs The Yellow Boat on November 13-22 at the Studio Theatre in Kettler Hall on the IPFW campus. It's part of the 25 Anniversary of the Fort Wayne AIDS Task Force; to commemorate the milestone, area theaters were asked for their 2009-'10 season to include a play that dealt with an AIDS-related theme. Benjamin finds comfort and solace in the refuge of his imagination. A box of crayons becomes his best friend. Red, Blue, Yellow, Purple, and Green are always ready to provide him the means to escape the confines of a dreary hospital room. Together Benjamin and his friends are able to create a world without pain or fear -- where anything is possible. Despite the premise, The Yellow Boat is actually a hopeful, vibrant story -- qualities that, according to Jeff Casazza, weren't all that easy to find in a play dealing with this subject matter. He struggled to find the right play for the 25th anniversary effort, reading several scripts that, "were either dark for the sake of being dark or just so dark and depressing,"before he stumbled onto the story he wanted to direct. "I was drawn to how it (The Yellow Boat) celebrates life and has so much potential to be theatrical," says Casazza. It is evident as Casazza blocks scenes and directs the players that he is completely at home on the stage and lights up like a little kid locked in a candy store when he starts talking about his craft. It is only natural that he would be drawn to Benjamin's dynamic story and indomitable spirit. Directing The Yellow Boat also allows Casazza to explore the new role as father with the birth of his first child, a little girl, named after his beloved sister. "Even before she was born she was a part of the process in preparing for The Yellow Boat," he says. It is from this perspective that he more deeply connects with the spirit of love and the beauty in life that unfolds as Saar celebrates the joy of Benjamin and not the darkness or sorrow of his son's predicament.

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.
