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.

The project was to find a professional resume writer who could create a resume and cover letter for a retiree with 25+ years of experience to apply for an administrative part-time position. I believe the comments below speak for themselves. First reaction, "WOW”. I really wasn't too optimistic that she would be able to take what I provided her and craft it in such a way to get so much information into 1 page. Of course my expectation was an improvement over what I provided, but she really took it to another level; I was amazed! To have someone who truly understands ... respects my feelings is absolutely priceless. I guess the best way I can say this, is the professionalism, sincerity and genuine commitment to my project is something we all as consumers wish we could experience with any company we do business with! Well done!" Thank you so much for a job “Well done”!

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.

I have technical documents often to be edited. My writing in English is not so strong because I am from Hungary and she can change it to make it much better. She understands the technical language even through my Bad English, and she is always punctual and professional. I will continue to use her service.

Dr. Mansur helped me achieve a goal that I thought was impossible. She was very responsive to all of my needs and questions. She met with me via Zoom to help answer any questions and to clear up any misunderstandings I had about my work. She never hesitated to answer a question and she was always positive and encouraged me to be the best that I could be. Dr. Mansur was also very knowledgeable about how to complete a dissertation and gave suggestions on what was needed to improve my writing. I would recommend anyone to give Dr Mansur an opportunity to make your dissertation writing less stressful and easier. Dr. Wintter Samuel

OMG, Harry is hilarious! I wish I could give him a hundred stars, 5 just doesn't seem like enough. I have had the honor to work with him at a showcase for event planners. The event planners, who are the toughest audience because they see so many talented people, loved him. REALLY REALLY LOVED HIM! He pretended to be an expert on event planning and he had everyone rolling in the aisles. He really does his research! I've seen him do put-ons for other industries too, and he is the best at writing original content for not just the industry, but also for the city, the room he was in, for the guests in the audience, about the competition, and most importantly he roasts the C-Level team. The good kind of roasting where everyone feels good about the jokes. Edgy and funny, not dirty and mean. He is the best at what he does. If you have a meeting of corporate people and you want to have a memorable event, get Harry. He is the best surprise they will never see coming. A surprise that will keep them laughing on the flight home!

Max was a delight to work with. He tutored my son for 2 years when we were in Shanghai, China. Our son was in middle school at the time, (7th and 8th grade) and he needed help in getting organized and concentrating on his school work. I interviewed Max and selected him because of his warmth and engaging personality. He is also a writer and, at the time, our son was really into drama and creative writing so we thought that would inspire him. Max was so patient with our son who, at times, could be exasperating. Max would just roll with it and find a way to re-engage him. I don't think our son would have done as well as he did in school if it weren't for Max. Our whole family loved seeing Max, including our housekeeper who got a kick out of talking with Max in Mandarin. We highly recommend Max! He was sensitive to our son's moods and figured out how to motivate him, he was always punctual and very reliable.

I would love to recommend Charles Worrell for résumé and/or cover letter writing. He helped my friend with her resume and she got a great job. It took a while for me to struggle with my resume by myself, but once I met with him it was done in a matter of hours. Charles did an amazing job for me in a very short time!!! The main thing - he left my personality there, so when I read my resume i don't feel like I am reading about a stranger. He perfectly stated my professional goals and philosophy in the cover letter. He didn't change them, didn't create some fancy unrelated sentences but he picked up my inner vision and thoughts in a very subtle way. He wrote everything I wanted to express but could never find the right words. Someone helped me with my resume before, and it came out very professional but very dry, not representing me at all. These resume and cover letter are "so me" and so professional. I am VERY impressed with his work! if you're looking for someone to help you with your Resume and Cover letter, I highly recommend him!

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.
