I wish to let everyone know that Nick is top notch in his field. He is extremely knowledgeable, a very honest and trustworthy person offering his services at fair prices. I had a hard drive crash at the most critical time and Nick treated me more than fair in the cost when others where quoting astronomical prices, Nick was able to recover all of my data in a very short time without losing the information that I needed the most. I was making final edits in my Master's Thesis paper, one week from dead line due date, and you know what happened? The hard drive died, with the last back-up copy of the work was only in the rough draft. Panic time !! Nick recovered the information, copied it to a new drive, and provided me with an external back up drive. Thank you Nick you saved me countless hours of redo work and helped me graduate on time. I would highly recommend Nick Covey to anyone who is in need of data recovery. Thank you again Nick, you are awesome in my book !

Pat did a wonderful job editing my dissertation. She was professional and prompt. I needed the edits to be completed quickly and she did just that without cutting any corners. I will definitely use her services for my future research projects. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a no fuss editing service with a great turnaround time.

Proofed to Perfection gave me a very detailed edit. After years of trying to get published, I submitted my book to Pamela Guerrieri, got an edit that cleaned up my inconsistencies, and she even helped me with my book proposal for free. After working with her and fine-tuning my book I started submitting again and got a publishing deal with a decent small trade publishing house (which I found from a list of reputable publishers Pam gave me). My book finally got published, is making me money, and it's all thanks to Pam Guerrieri and Proofed to Perfection.

I have worked with Dr. Mayorga multiple times over the past year. I am a small business owner and I often need assistance with special projects that require in-depth presentations or lengthy proposals. Writing and organizing information are not things I enjoy doing, so I was pleased to find someone with such a well honed skill set. Dr. Mayorga is a pleasure to work with! I would not hesitate to recommend her consulting services to others.

    As a freelance writer, researcher and editor, Kat consistently and reliably turns in polished, professional grade work, on time, without fail. I recently hired her to do some research and copy writing for Carolina Partners in Mental Health Care; she finished every assignment well within the deadlines, taking painstaking care to craft well-written, exhaustively-researched pieces without typos or grammatical errors. I now consider her a go-to resource for our company. Kat is highly communicative - if she has questions, she will get in touch with you right away, to ensure that she goes into any assignment with all the requisite information. In short, Kat is a good writer, a hard worker, and a delightful person to work with. I cannot recommend her skills enough.

    About

    For over 15 years, I have used words to help people and organizations achieve their goals. Sometimes, those words were my own, carefully crafted to convey a message, tell a story or sell a product. Sometimes, they were the words of others, carefully edited to make sure they achieve their goals in the most-effective manner possible. From editorial articles to press releases, business communication and books, I have a considerable experience as a writer and can speak to any audience required. I do love writing, but I enjoy the challenge of editing just as much.

    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.
