Working with Jennifer was easy and enjoyable from the first conversation onward! She brought valuable knowledge regarding blogging to my project, her editing was impeccable, and her timeliness made sure that I made our agreed timeline for outputs. I would highly recommend Jennifer for anyone timid about jumping into public writing or a seasoned writer looking for a fresh perspective.

“After a false start by another writer who wasn’t up to the job, I called Steve. Not more than five minutes into our conversation I realized I had found exactly the right person to help. Steve has helped me with naming and creating a concept for my blog, develop a strategy to launch it as well as writing the article. He has a unique ability to understand my business and exactly how to tell my stories with high impact. He was/is able to get inside my mind and become the voice of my brand. His savvy, natural talent for extracting the DNA of my business and how I want to communicate it to my clients in a unique and compelling manner was impressive. I really enjoy collaborating and working with Steve as both a professional and a smart, easy-going and clever guy. I highly recommend working with Steve. You’ll be very glad you did. And you’ll get world-class work.” Corey Harlock CEO, KeyHire Recruiting Solutions

I have served on several committees for which Barb Lyman has designed the advertising, created brochures, response cards, posters, slogans, logos, and much more. These have been used for events as diverse as major financial campaigns or large social events. Her work can be in a professional business style or fanciful as the occasion requires. She readily meets deadlines. I am happy to recommend Barb's designs for style, creativity, and excellent writing. Ruth Hagander 651-484-7394

    Travis is an unbelievably thorough copyeditor whose attention to detail guarantees the best possible results. His work has been absolutely indispensable to the completion of my dissertation. I would highly recommend Travis to other graduate students in any stage of writing and in any Humanities or Social Science field. One of the things I appreciate most about Travis is that he really works with the author to ensure that the final product reflects their vision while verifying that every single error is properly fixed.

I am a consultant for writers in fiction and creative nonfiction, as well as in poetry, writing for theater, and multigenre works.

My classes are challenging and supportive, and reframe the craft and concepts of creative writing and story in ways that help writers go way beyond what they dreamt about for their writing. Many writers who have worked with me go on to finish full length projects, publish, win prizes, and clear away many obstacles and blocks in their work. Countless writers have told me that no one has gotten them to the places in their work that I have, and many take numerous courses with me and also do one-to-one work with me. My passionate and creative approach works well toward helping writers go to a much deeper level in their work, eliciting much surprising writing, and finishing short and full-length works. Testimonials, as well as my publishing credits and writing awards, can be seen at my website, as well as full descriptions of my in- person and online workshops.

      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.
