I sent Lorena a copy of my resume and she made it look absolutely wonderful. It's very professional, easy to read, and highlights my skills. She also included a cover letter which is something I've never had. Great job

Chris is brilliant! An outstanding editor and proofreader. He helped me greatly in editing a paper with a short notice and a close deadline. He eloquently managed to thoroughly analyze the paper and understood the purpose of the project, and accordingly he made the necessary adjustments/ corrections. Chris is a professional person, and i strongly recommend him to those who want to obtain the expertise of a resourceful person.

I was seeking a professional to assist in writing my resume. After several search and reading reviews I came across Wes P's profile which really caught my attention. As a skeptic, his reviews were spectacular, so I decided to hire him. In so many words, he did an outstanding job on my resume, followed up with me for editing, ensures that I was satisfied with the work that was done. He was able to meet his deadline in delivering my resume on time as promised. I would definitely hire Wes P again and recommend him to friends and family. Do not hesitate to use Wes P.

    Hannah has done copy edit work for me on numerous occasions. I find her editing to be fast and of a high quality. She is always a positive person and a great person to work with.


    Was a magazine editor for more than 20 years. Have ghost-written two books and numerous magazine articles. Am versed in fiction, nonfiction, advertising, speech, and some technical writing. Have a story to tell but can't put it on paper? Let me do it for you. Have a menu or business letter or form ready for publication? At the minimum, allow me to proofread it. Term paper, dissertation or thesis need polishing? Perhaps I can help. No job is too small. Some, however, like ghost-writing a book or memoir from scratch, may be too large and time-consuming unless the subject matter is of great interest to me. Deadlines will be met. Prices negotiable.

    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.
