Todd did a wonderful job at revising an academic essay in the humanities to be submitted for publication. He never misunderstood what I wanted say. Also, he works fast and efficiently. This was my first time relying on someone I did not know, and I was uncertain about how it would work: but worked it did! Thank you Todd. Julia

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!

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.

Of the five choices that I had, Susan was such a godsend in my time of need. She helped me iron out my ideas and offered word suggestions that made the story of my life leap out from the page. She refined my thoughts and helped with the technical editing that I struggled with. This essay was one of the most important pieces that I had to write and after hearing Susan’s initial thoughts and ideas, I trusted it into the care of her hands. Susan was also great because she offered different price plans to work within my budget. Finally, she also worked within my tight deadline. But if you give her more time she can help with research and possibly run your work by specific industry professions for feedback. I strongly recommend Susan when you need someone to help bring out the best of you through your writing.

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!

    I had the pleasure of working with April on my college essay a few months ago. I submitted my original piece to her and within a day she returned my work with several helpful notes and suggestions. After a few drafts, she helped me piece together a perfect paper that truly expressed all the parts of myself that I had attempted to get across in my original draft. So far, I have been accepted to every college I've applied to. April is so much fun to work with and I am SO thankful that she was available to help me. 5 stars for sure, she knows what she's doing.

      It's a pleasure to work with someone who can communicate the core of your message even better than you can! Luanne "gets" it. A beautiful writer and excellent editor, Luanne is a joy to work with. A true professional!


      While I'm obsessive and thorough when it comes to removing errors, I'm also in love with the flexibility of language and feel that every project has its own distinct personality. I am aware and adaptable, always conscious of the overall tone and focus of a piece to ensure it represents you and your needs.


      I have written one book, "Walking in Dominion, by Jean Tendongho " I do writing and editing. My English is standard, and I promise my clients the best value for their money.

      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.
