    I hired Bruce Davis and Around HIS Image Publishing to publish a book for me, a novice writer. After making a few other contacts with less than desirable results I made contact with Bruce Davis. I had no clue what I needed to do except write but he and the Around Him team made it an awesome experience, holding my hand throughout the entire process. With God's confirmation we've been working together and I have nothing but admiration and respect for him as a person and business man. If you find yourself in need of a marketing company or publisher he is the right person.

Communicates needs, progress and updates effectively and efficiently. As writers go, Jessica is one of the most disciplined with her work and one of the most astute at understanding the needs of business owners. She is a professional through and through... and truly a value in the market of reliable writers.

        I have had the pleasure of working with Sherri Orner for since 2002. She is the consummate professional, always turning out work that is high quality and error-free. She is an outstanding writer and editor and has very good attention to detail. Virtually every important piece of communication I have shared in the past 15 years- be it a letter, PowerPoint presentation, documentation, etc. - has been reviewed and vetted by Sherri. I enthusiastically recommend her to any person, from entry level to executive, who needs help with communication and administrative tasks.

        Hands of Clay Productions was invited to God's House of Deliverance Christian Center's "I Am My Sister's Keeper Conference, which was held in the beautiful city of Atlanta GA to inspire women with a good morning inspiration entitled "Hello Beautiful". Her drama was very touching, moving, and inspiring and it touched many women with various walks of life. She used her experiences as a signet to help heal the broken, and the bruised. Mary, excelled beyond our expectations. She was timely, prompt, and she exercised her gift with the spirit of excellence. I wish Mary, Hands of Clay Production, much success!

        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.
