Todd edited my book " A Book About You: A Heart's Journey to Love" as well as my introduction in 2016. He was very responsive and professional. He understood my style of writing and did his best to keep my voice alive and not edited out entirely which was very important to me. The book was a hit and well received by my audience. Thank you. Todd.

Ken was excellent in his responsiveness. I believe that his knowledge and understanding of the non-profit organizational environment lends a unique perspective on wording, brevity, and the importance of key metrics specific to the non-profit environment. His writing is beyond parallel. I look forward to working with Ken again in the future.

David was a fantastic support with the opening chapter of my first novel. He provided excellent insights into my writing habits, great suggestions and ultimately focussed on where I could strengthen my story to keep the reader engaged. His editing was very valuable, and he responded almost immediately. I would work with him again and happily recommend others consider him also.

Lee Hershey, works with you to understand the nature of the assignment at hand; she then goes on to professionally develop a work schedule that fits in a series of your expectations. I was able to arrange a face to face meeting with her, and explain bits, about the nature of my work. We agreed on a delivery method, and she replied to all my questions. Overall, it was a great experience --- if you need a person that is dedicated, interactive, professional, and open minded, then Lee Hershey is the right person.

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.

Lee was great! She walked me through writing my resume. I had no clue where to start being out of the job search world for 30+ years.

Laurie assisted our son in preparing applications for college. Specifically, she assisted by providing guidance in identifying colleges, in Essay writing, in preparation of the college applications and tracking the submitted applications. We could not be more pleased with the assistance she has provided to us. I would highly recommend her to any parent who is looking for a way to navigate the college selection and application process.

    Michele Schachere is a smart, savvy professional. I am able to hand her projects with little to no direction and the product she delivers back is clean, tight, and on point. She has exceptional attention to detail and sharp wit. I highly recommend her.

        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.
