Working with the Writer was a very positive experience from start to finish. He was very clear from the beginning of what type of work he would be doing and sent over a clear contract outlining everything. He was incredibly fast with the turnaround time of my manuscript, and the quality of his work was excellent. I also appreciate how honest he was with his pricing and time spent. He quoted a range of how long it would take to edit, and he only charged towards the low end of that range - so you can definitely know that The Writer is honest with the time spent. I would highly recommend this editor to any potential clients, and give him a full 5 stars in every area of work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value, and punctuality.

I was badly in need of an editor for my novel and found Mr. Larson on Thumbtack. He was extremely reasonable, professional, and completed my editing in less time than I expected. I explained my issues and he addressed all of them. I plan to take advantage of his talent again when my next novel is completed. I would like to highly recommend him, especially to new writers. Thank you thumbtack and Mr. Larson

My experience with Ian was SO delightful... I am a bit older and recently decided to go back to college. I hired Ian to help me with college essays.. He has a great background and such a creative writer. In addition to the essays he offered to help me with my resume knowing that colleges will also request that. I couldn't be happier with his service!!

David was absolutely amazing in helping me articulate just what I wanted to say to my sister on her wedding day! My sisters and I had the idea to make our speech into a poem for our other sisters wedding day. I am not a very good poem writer, however, David helped me take my thoughts and put it into a poem! He was extremely quick in his responses, flexible with making changes, and so beyond easy to work with! I highly recommend his professionalism and his creativeness!

Matt has a very good work around! He did a resume within 24 hours and I’m very happy about it. I just recently had him write and edit my resume. It was really good and I’m happy with the final outcome. I had no issues on the outcome of the work. He’s definitely commendable as a resume writer!

David has exceeded my expectations. I had two unprofessional experiences and was skeptical searching for a resume writer online. He is so nice, professional, prompt, and very knowledgeable.

Marian did a fantastic job on helping me get my resume updated. It's really such a better representation of who I am and how I want to project myself to potential employers and clients. She has a multi-layered understanding of the process and is a really effective and creative writer. She was also responsive to my need to get the work done within a tight time-window, which I appreciated a lot. I can't recommend her highly enough!

    About

    Writer/editor of biomedical science manuscripts, dissertations and grant proposals. Data analysis and presentation. I work closely with clients to provide integrated science writing and illustration. Interaction and review of drafts by the client are key to providing the best finished project. I prefer to consult with clients near their place of work in metro Boston, so that I can get a sense of the nuances of their projects.

      Express yourself was at the Toastmasters Humorous Speech Contest. I asked her for some feedback on the speech I gave and and she gave me valuable feedback. After the feedback, I know the speech went from a disjointed speech to a winning speech. Her feedback was informative and on point. I appreciate everything she did for me. I recommend her services. You will not be disappointed and quiet satisfied

      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.
