I called Dr. Helgeson after receiving her initial quote on Thumbtack. She answered all of my questions thoroughly and was always patient with me whenever I asked questions because I wanted to ensure I had the best writer to rewrite my resume. Dr. Helgeson was prompt with my resume and the quality is a huge difference of what I had before. I look forward to applying this resume for my new career and I thank Dr. Helgeson for all of her help!

Amenah has been an indispensable component of some of my best work throughout my bachelor and masters degrees. Even if the subject matter is obscure, she is able to quickly understand the point I was trying to get across and help me find the most strategic, well-organized pathway to get my point across to the reader. Importantly, she takes into consideration the audience you are writing for (whether academic, journalistic, grant agencies, etc.), helping you tailor the form and delivery of your writing. Amenah is not only a skilled grammatical editor. She is able to work with my style of writing, not against it, making me a better writer with each project she assists on. Her personable nature and common sense way of talking me through even the most complex subject matter helps me organize my thoughts and arguments, making any writing task seem far less daunting. I would HIGHLY recommend working with Amenah.

Amy took my resume a few years ago and absolutely transformed it! I would never send a resume to a prospective employer that she had not signed off on! She is a brilliant writer and editor, able to take your ideas and turn it into something better than you had in mind.

      I've trusted Katie's keen eye and thoughtful critique with numerous professional and personal writing projects, including articles for publication, experimental poetry, and short fiction. In each circumstance, she was an enthusiastic and valuable guide, offering thoughtful criticism each step of the way. An accomplished and imaginative writer in her own right, I've always trusted Katie's unique insight when refining prose.

      About

      I am a freelance writer who lends out my services for articles, novels, and many more writing jobs. I do it because there are some people that can't write or have poor grammar skills, but that's no reason to not advertise your business or stop you from sharing your ideas. That's why I am here to do the work for you, and we both get rewarded in the end.

      About

      Well, there are several reasons: 1) Technically, I know various writing styles real well (AP, GPO, Chicago, APA). 2) Through my years of journalism and other writing experience, I've developed a knack for clear, accurate, succinct expression and finding just the right words for a certain thought. 3) I was trained in Biochemistry in college. This developed my strong analytical ability, which helps me produce clear, logical, and error-free copy. 4) I write poetry, so I bring an aesthetic sensibility to the written word, helping me produce writing that's tasteful, sensitive, and moving. 5) I have a broad general knowledge, in everything from world history to science, art to gastronomy, which strengthens my fact-checking and editing in many ways.

      Laura Boyle is an attuned consultant with expertise as a wordsmith and graphic artist. Her writing and editing support and technical skill and familiarity with IT was very helpful in tightening up my website and strengthening my online presence. We are currently working on developing presentations and workshops and I find her solution focused approach and ability to define a task and develop implementation strategies that break large projects into smaller and doable parts very helpful. Laura is a very good listener which when blended with her responsive professional service style results in the production of quality work. As you can gather I am very pleased with the services I have and continue to receive from Laura Boyle and Imagine Communications and highly recommend 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.
