In my first time using MKDiehl Editing Services, and my first time seeking help via ThumbTack, I was very pleased with her work. She proof-read our 48 page public policy report. When reviewing this and other editing services on Thumbtack, I didn't know whether to expect proof reading or full-on copy editing, but was very happy in the end. It was a huge boost to the quality of my writing, and a big step up from relying on just our internal staff proof reading. I'm looking forward to using this great service again, and found the price very reasonable.

I recently graduated with my masters degree in Management and Leadership, and I have embarked on the journey of finding a career in my field. Applying for jobs can be extremely competitive, and I felt the need to reach out for assistance with my resume and cover letter. Mrs. Brenda Pilson took time to answer my questions and give invaluable feedback that took my resume to the next level. I am not typically someone who writes reviews, but Mrs. Pilson went above and beyond. Of course, she helped me with my documents, but she also instilled a sense of confidence and a renewed sense of purpose in me. I loved our consultations because she helped to remind me why I entered my profession. If anything in this review resonates, please reach out to Mrs. Pilson. She takes care of her clients. Thanks Brenda Pilson!

I am submitting my review to Bob Levengood (The Writehouse) resume writing services. I am very pleased for choosing Bob to assist me with revamping my resume. Bob created two (2) different resumes (one for a senior level Administrative Assistant and one for an entry Paralegal/Legal Assistant) with cover letters for each. I submitted the reference materials needed consisting of professional background and past performance evaluations. I had a draft copy of the first resume and cover letter for my review the following weekend. Based on the materials submitted, Bob was able to feature my skillset and attitude to a potential employer that I was unable to do myself. Thanks to Bob’s efforts, I now have a resume that I can feel proud to submit to any future applications and/or agencies for positions that I am interested in. I sincerely thank Bob for his efforts and I would certainly recommend him to others.

David Tabatsky is one of those rare individuals in modern day publishing who consistently shines in all three of the industry's most fundamental criteria: writing, editing and administrative skills. He would be an asset to any organization seeking someone whose love of words is matched only by his proficiency at putting them together.

Malory is amazing. I have a bit of a problem with word recall and word choice. Utilizing an editor has helped me to see the areas I need improvement. Malory’s is responsive and depending on the length can review and edit in minutes. She’s a godsend.

Mr. Fleming copyedited a program evaluation report that was based on interviews and focus groups. He performed an outstanding job, promptly responded to my questions, offered insightful feedback and wording suggestions that made the final copy more readable. I will be using his services again.

      Julia edited a number of my research manuscripts. In each case, she was prompt in returning edited drafts, and I have been impressed with the thoroughness of her work. Particularly important for me, she was able to recommend edits that fit within the "scientific" style of writing, which is sometimes difficult, in my experience, for editors to do.

      I'm Wesley Bailey III and i want to apply for the position as editor. i don't know if the position is filled. Using Final Cut 7 & X as well as Avid Media Composer i just finished a freelance gig at CBS News productions.

      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.
