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%.

Verified review

Diane is a phenomenal editor with an eye not only for the smallest detail but for the big picture as well. To begin with, she has done a wonderful job editing and proofreading my novels, not just catching typos or pointing out missing words, but finding inconsistencies in descriptions (people, places, things), timelines, etc. She has applied the same discerning attention to my non-fiction. Diane has also been editing and proofreading copy for my advertising business for more than two decades now. That copy has run the gamut from lengthy brochures to video scripts to print advertising to web content to sales presentations, and so on. Additionally, for my licensing business, she has done an equally superb job reviewing complex legal agreements. Bottom line: She has never failed to make my writing better in some way, whether it’s by flagging a phrase or sentence that could be clearer or by catching a typo. I always have a lot more confidence in the clarity and accuracy of my work after Diane has put her stamp on it.

Sam was an integral part of my law school application process. He worked with me to write a fantastic Personal Statement and several Letters of Interest. His critiques were insightful and spot-on, his turnaround time was fast, and his professionalism was unmatched. I highly recommend Sam and RSSR Editing for any editing/drafting/writing needs - especially for help with graduate school admissions. Thank you Sam!

    Sarah is my go-to editor/proofreader for every project; from resume design and professional writing, to academic assignments and even creative pieces. I have absolute trust in her knowledge of grammar and punctuation, as well as her eye for layout and her ear for perfect word choice. She is direct and tactful in communicating her recommendations. Our interactions have been fun, smart and time efficient. I always come away feeling uplifted.

    I hired Christie to transform my elderly father's blog posts into a memoir and she did an outstanding job. She had a deft touch, superb copy-editing skills and the insight and intuition needed to keep my father's voice while smoothing out the rough spots. She also designed the book cover, found a publisher and got it done in time for my father's 85th birthday, when we had a launch party for "Skydiving into Medical School and Other Adventures," and we made a dying man extremely happy. The book would have been only an old man's dream if not for Christie.

    About

    For a lower fee than our competitors, we offer the best editors that money can buy to our clients. There is no catch. When you submit your essay or other manuscript through our website, an automated computer system matches an available editor in our database with your paper, and the computer system does all the busy work, allowing the editor to spend more time actually doing what you are paying for -- editing your paper! This allows us to keep costs down, while providing the best service. Its simple to say, but really hard to do. This is what makes us unique.

    About

    We offer a personalized service and encourage our customers to communicate with us about their expectations. Our editors are willing to continue working with you even after we e-mail your final draft if you have any concerns or further questions.

    I am a widely published, award-winning newspaper reporter for hire for copywriting, tutoring and editing assignments. I provide magazine-quality writing.

    About

    It is our mission to provide professional, publishing-quality editing at rates that regular folks can afford. You are the expert -- and you can see us as your executive assistant: asking thoughtful questions, pointing out potential problems, and fixing all the little things you don't need to be bothered with. How it works: We provide expert editing using the Track Changes feature in Microsoft Word (we thank you in advance for sending your document in MS Word format). When the editing is complete, we provide you with 2 documents: the edited draft showing all editing markings (so you can see what was changed), and, for your convenience, a "clean" draft in which all edits have been incorporated, with no markings except for direct questions to you in the margin. If we find something in your document that we're not sure about, we will leave it as-is, and post a question in the margin, or give you suggestions of ways to re-write that section, and let you choose which one is the best. We look forward to assisting you! Sincerely, The Editing Group team

    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.
