Hi hired Derrick and Blue Square Writer's studio for the final edit of my vampire novel. The decision to hire was based on both his professional response to my initial post, as well as the reasonable price he offered for the service. And I don't mind saying that I definitely got my money's worth from his edit. He covered the basics, correcting my grammar and spelling, but also provided positive critical feedback regarding character and story development, helping me to shape my manuscript into a strong and marketable book. I look forward to working with him on future projects, and I can absolutely recommend his service for writers of fiction, like myself.

Jeff completed many tasks for our small business, including creative writing and promotion, and even helped overhaul our Youtube channel. Most importantly, he is a gifted writer who pays terrific attention to detail, and extremely focused. He also has graphic design and computer skills, and was helpful in our company's digital publishing business. Finally, he helped us with our social media outreach.

    Justin edited the first half of my novel BODIES: BOOK #1: STAGED FRIGHT, and his notes were both insightful and helped get my book where it needed to go. At first I got defensive at some of Justin's feedback, which is generally what happens to writers. We get all "OMG, how dare you say something like that about my precious prose?!" But eventually I saw through my defensiveness and used almost all of Justin's notes. My book is much leaner, meaner, and better now for it.

    About

    As a life-long lover of stories and a creative writer since I was 12, I have a unique perspective on what makes a good tale. I delight in the sounds and rhythms of words and phrases and the vivid imagery which they create. Telling stories is a pure joy and passion for me. With over 30 years as a teacher of preschool children through college freshman, I've also gained the experience to adapt my programming and services for a variety of audiences. These collective skills allow me to help and instruct others with their own writing projects and stories. Please let me be of service to you.

    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.
