I’ve worked on fiction writing with Jennifer Whitten for many years and with her input have gone from a complete beginner to a published writer. Jennifer’s an intelligent, incredibly creative person with the uncanny ability to home in on the areas of a piece that would benefit from further work, whether the problem is with language, plot structure, character inconsistency, or a theme that can be deepened, and she is able to do so in a manner that’s always encouraging and inspiring. I’ve never left a session with Jennifer without several new insights and ideas, some of which have been dazzling. I highly recommend her. Sincerely, Wayne Bachner

Pauline’s keen eye helped me create a professional website for my business. She found grammar, punctuation, and consistency errors that improved the flow and overall appearance of my site. She sent back her notes and edits within 24 hours. I highly recommend her for any writing services you may have.

Carol is amazing to work with. I've done so on and off for years and she's reliable, detail-oriented and an overall fantastic writer/editor. I'd highly recommend her (and have!) to anyone who's looking to self-publish with a seasoned professional at their side or to hire an excellent ghost-writer.

    Dylan served as a copywriter for Instabill for more than three years, contributing up to four blogs, news items and new pages each week. Each item he submitted was expertly written for our company and for SEO purposes. Dylan is an outstanding writer, and Instabill is a better company because of his contributions.

    Greg was able to take on a wide range of topics from technical medical device guides to articles on lifestyle and wellbeing. He often asked follow up questions to clarify assignments and make sure he was on target. His projects were typically turned in ahead of schedule and needed little editing. He quickly grasped the brand and with that the voice of the organization. His work was always research-based and easy to digest. I would not hesitate to recommend him for content writing in the health field or any other.

    Jason has been very helpful, and as a published author in the non fiction realm and an excellent writer himself, he could immediately see what needed to be worked on in my MS. He put considerable time into an excellent critique that has been more than I expected.

    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.
