I had two objectives - to improve my SAT reading score & develop better experience with the essay section.. In just two hours consulting over the phone, Kathy was extremely helpful in achieving both of my goals. She taught me alternative methodical strategies for different types of critical reading passages & questions. She also eliminated my anxiety of getting caught off guard by a strangeEssay prompt by explaining how & why I could prepare my examples ahead of test day, write to the specific structure and still stand out from other good persuasive writers. She even made it fun to recognize the most common grammar mistakes on the test. The resulting positive attitude, clear-mind, and confidence I had on test day definitely improved my score. Thank you Kathy!!

      I have been working with Doris Troy since 2000. I am a writer. Doris has worked with me on feature stories, literary essays, short stories, and a novel. If I had my way, I wouldn't send an e-mail without her seeing it first. After all, Penguin chose her to edit Shakespeare -- and if you think you can do better than that, think again. She is not only on time, but early. She is brilliant. I see her as a writing partner, not just an editor. She is the kind of editor that isn't made anymore; she will make you look a hundred times smarter than you are.

      Jessie wrote for us at as our Outdoor Adventure expert. We used her as often as she was available because she was able to write concise, entertaining, and helpful articles for our diverse audiences. She was our most reliable freelance writer. Jessie often turned in articles ahead of deadline, and was eager to take on more. Most of all, Jessie is an inspiring and insightful human being. Her writing is a reflection of a good and rich life.

      I've managed creative groups for more than three decades, and Renee was clearly the best hire I ever made. She's a totally dependable, low-key, deadline-oriented writer who can deliver a dead-on version of exactly what you want and can also deliver a very successful, fresh approach you'd never thought of. No drama, no worries, and outstanding writing--an almost impossible combination to find. I worked with her for five years at Orange Lake Resort in Florida, where we did every type of marketing and advertising writing for the 1,200 acre resort--and Rene was unquestionably and consistently the top performer on our creative team. I have no negative experiences whatsoever, and would hire her again in a blink!

      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.
