Pearl Copy Editors

Browse these copy editors with great ratings from Thumbtack customers in Pearl.


I have taught writing and editing to high school and college level students for 8 years and have been the primary editor for a number of academic works. I believe strongly that the way a person presents themselves in writing provides an initial impression to their readers about who the person is and their positions and beliefs on the material they are presenting. It is vital that the author is given the best opportunity to choose the write words and use the write punctuation to most clearly convey what it is he/she is trying to communicate. That is my goal as writer or editor.


I critique and edit books, coach speakers, write winning speeches; conduct workshops on team building skills, conflict management, and communicative effectiveness, including public speaking, listening, and nonverbal communication. This is a great business because it encourages clients to enjoy learning and reaching their maximum potential.


Provide active voice writing for white papers, business concepts and formal proposals. Editing services include technical writing, fiction and non-fiction. Professional proposal writer for four (4) years.


I am a book editor. I love to take someone's work and imagination and make it a masterpiece! I also edit short stories and non-fiction works.


I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, and have written voluminous copy for TV, radio & print media, as well as all types of manuals, national tour guides, hundreds of Congressional & Intergovernmental official inquiries, Congressional advisories, and edited more written words than you can imagine. Let me help you help yourself!

  • 6 years in business

I am a consummate professional. I enjoy writing, editing and reviewing other works. I know what I want my work to look and feel like and that is what I try to pass on to others I like seeing other people succeed with their writing projects. I get an intense feeling of satisfaction if I have helped in any way to do that.

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.
