Todd was an amazing editor! He contacted me and was the perfect match for my manuscript. He completed the editing of my 90 page book in 6 days, one day earlier than predicted. His prices were very good and his contract was straight forward with no strings. He responds to emails quickly within the hour and he answered all questions I had about the writing process and formatting. I recommend him 100%.

Melinda really makes a resume review & rewrite a painless process. She quickly understands what you are trying to do and is able to create a resume that speaks to your goals but is also flexible enough that it can be easily edited for a variety of jobs.

Jaclyn is fun and easy to work with. We needed logos for web and hard copy materials as well as the sign for outside our brick and mortar. We had a million ideas, and she helped us narrow them down into a design that we were ultimately thrilled with. She was generous with her edits and made sure that we were happy every step of the way. Her pricing is fair, and she produces great work. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and we will definitely work with her again in the future.

Working with Adrienne of Leviosa Communication has been an absolute pleasure. She paid attention to my needs from the project and delivered beautifully written copy. She was way to collaborate with and was quick to respond with edits and revisions. Her punctuality and responsiveness, along with her talent for writing, were what I appreciated the most about her. I would highly recommend working with Leviosa Communication for any project that needs well-written and creative copy.

Chloe edited my non-fiction book. It was highly detailed, with lots of citations and my conclusions. She followed my arguments, found errors in the logic, and made suggestions towards a more professional presentation. Her response was timely and polite. She found several typos and suggested grammatical improvements. Bottom line, just what I needed and wanted.

Ryan Mercik patiently and meticulously edited through reams of my Dad's 8mm film footage from the 1950s and 60s, transforming them into a DVD set of precious memories. She magically corrected color and light as she worked, often saving impossibly dark or blown-out sequences. Ryan also added fun music, appropriate to the times; and packaged the DVDs with still photos clipped from the film. I can't say enough about Ryan's expertise with this media. Her instincts are spot on. My whole family is grateful that she rescued our deteriorating films and gave us a gift from our childhood that has us doubled over in laughter, as well as in tears. Thank you, Ryan!

    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.
