    I have had this person edit countless documents for me over the last three years, everything from letters of recommendations for others (where she catches additional things to be included), to important correspondence where a single typo can create a poor impression. She is a great editor who can not only catch the form/from, does/dose kind of typo that gets by spell check, but she makes recommendations for improving flow and writing in a more active tone. I know she has worked with many researchers and amassed over 30 full scientific journal articles. Some people she worked with were not native English speakers and she also served as the editor of their work making sure it was grammatically correct and understandable to an English audience. In addition to being a great editor she is also a good writer. After I created a department newsletter, I sent her out to interview a faculty member for each edition. She has a natural talent for not only getting the mundane details of their work but also getting to the more personal side of them. The faculty universally loved her interviews in our newsletter. I give her my highest recommendation.

        About

        I am a Indianapolis-based writer and editor. My professional career as an editor began a few years ago when I was asked to edit all materials for a Michigan business that would be seen by 10 or more customers - including blogs, web content, emails. But, really, I've been editing since I've been able to wield a red pen! My customers have a love-hate relationship with that red pen. They love that their writing is going to be bettered, but hate that that pen is actually going to be used on them!

        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.
