“I've known and worked with Steve Penn for 22 years and he exemplifies just what I was looking for and needed -- an ability to provide us with a comprehensive, on-target brand strategy and outstanding creative that not only gave us a new web presence that we're very proud of but now serves as a solid marketing and communications platform for all of our communications. I always felt I was in experienced and very capable hands. You'll find Steve offers strong, compelling reasons for his creative work but was also always willing to remain flexible to our needs and our collective vision for what we wanted to achieve. That's not always easy for creatives to do. It was a true partnership.” Mark A. Fagerwick Founder/CEO SuriOaks At Grace Ranch

We had Kimberly create six 2-3 minute animations describing key concepts from a book that we were re-working into a "enhanced" e-book version. She worked quickly, was always positive and professional, and did fantastic work - we're extremely happy with the results. She took our very rough storyboards and brought them to life in a charming manner - adding creative touches when needed. Truly a great experience.

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

    It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Mark Lambertson for his amazing graphic design and website work. I first met Mark while working at Regent University; however, it wasn’t until Mark worked on my company logo and stationary package that I realized his incredible creative talent, his diligent efforts and his willingness to work on any project. It was during that time that I saw Mark truly in action. With only a vague company description and thoughts I shared via email, Mark was able to design a professional logo that truly exceeded my expectations. In fact, Mark did more than just create a logo he made my dream come alive right before my eyes! Thanks to Mark I now have a logo with a story that makes me smile every time I see it. Most recently, Mark designed a book cover for my latest project that is proudly displayed on my Web site. A true work of art from a seriously talented individual!

I recommend her without hesitation and will continue to tap into her creative genius and expertise as often as possible.

      About

      Over the last 25 years I have written for Fortune 100's and freelancers, but will sprint away from "technical stuff."

      About

      As a prizewinning fiction writer and poet, I teach extraordinary creative writing workshops in person and online, focusing on story in fiction and memoir; autobiography and autobiographical fiction; and creative writing for social change. I am a consultant for writers in fiction and creative nonfiction, as well as in poetry, writing for theater, and multigenre works. I work with writers on developing their books and their writing skills at all levels. 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. I also teach at various retreat centers and conferences, and workshops in your area can be arranged, as well as writer's residencies at schools in your area.

      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.
