    Diana Matthews is a wonderful proofreader/editor. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. She not only corrected the punctuation and grammar in my book, she caught inconsistencies, repetitions and clumsy sentences, offering suggestions throughout to make it better. I look forward to using her brilliant skills and sage advice on my next project.

      Parents, the best thing you can do for your child’s English grades, writing confidence, and SAT prep is to hire Anne McGee. I mean this sincerely. I had Ms. McGee in 11th grade, and her teaching completely changed my life. She had a reputation for being tough but fair, and the work paid off; in my class alone, five of us earned a perfect score on the verbal section of the SATs, thanks to her weekly vocabulary assignments. It is a big deal for a school to have one student earn a perfect score on a portion of the SATs, but Ms. McGee had FIVE in one year. She also helped me learn how to focus my writing and analyze literature in a deep and meaningful way—two skills that proved absolutely essential in college and beyond. The confidence Ms. McGee gave me led me to pursue graduate studies in English and become an English teacher myself. I currently work in publishing and I still look to her as one of the most important and influential mentors of my life. No matter what career field your child is interested in pursuing, written communication will always be one of the most important means by which he or she will make a first impression. If you wish to equip your child with the skills to stand out and communicate effectively and intelligently in the professional world, there is no teacher better than Anne McGee.

      I worked with multiple editors as I completed my book for publication. Bethany stood out for her quick turnaround time, attention to detail, and ability to identify subtle problem areas of my manuscript. A joy to work with and, without a doubt, a person I'd hire again!

      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.
