Lorena was exactly what I was looking for with my cover letter and resume. I had doubts about using someone I just picked off a website and in another state but after speaking to her I knew I definitely could work with her as she was very friendly and easy to talk to. Through emails and phone calls Lorena came up with a draft within a couple days and the final within a week. Lorena is an excellent listener and writer. Her choice of words and key points described me so well and it looks so professional. I'm feeling confident, happy, and grateful for finding Thumbtack and Lorena. I would definitely recommend her.

I can't tell you enough how much Chris helped me. My 110,000 page manuscript was corrupted and Mr. Bayer fixed it after other editors said that they couldn't do so. Each time I needed to copy-paste part of my novel, in order to send to agents and contest coordinators, the manuscript seemed possessed with a mind of its own. But Chris fixed it at a reasonable cost, and he was very professional during the whole process. His formatting operations for me included (but were not limited to):  recreating cover page  setting consistency for line spacing, paragraph spacing, & paragraph indentation  eliminating superfluous carriage returns & hard returns  eliminating superfluous character spaces  programming macro to replace straight quotes with “smart quotes”  correcting chapter numeration  correcting any stray marks & typos  ensuring consistency among general typesetting  ensuring copy‐paste feature works properly  setting consistency for character scale,spacing, position, ligatures, & kerning I believed I was going to have to re-type the whole bloody thing, but because of Mr. Bayer's genius I was spared this tedious God-awful task. Importantly, I was able to go on to become a finalist in two writing contests because of his assistance. And hopefully I'll go on to get my novel published some day! Hire him...you wont be sorry! Please pass on this information to other writers. As you know, formatting and technical issues are the biggest hurdle for many scribes, causing us to stumble and perhaps quit. We're all told to persevere, and with CJBediting I was able to do just that!

      When I originally met Keontay he was supposed to only help me with 1 of my writing assignments, but now I go back to him whenever I need help. He is such a good writer and he really knows how to speak to his audience. Highly recommended

      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.
