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!

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.

Iyanna was immensely helpful in aiding me to craft a sensitive document ...one where the tone of my messaging absolutely determined its reception. She not only reviewed my work, but took time to understand the point I was keen to make, and the emotional investment surrounding the circumstance. In editing my work, she was able to frame it in such a way that not only was my point well received, I walked away with the victory! I can't thank her enough.

For the past few years, Danaya has helped me structure and edit various versions of my resume, CV and many cover letters. She is very thorough and patient, always willing to take the time to explain her suggestions for changes. If she is working on something for me and we aren't able to meet, she types up her notes and explanations. She has also translated a variety of documents for me - personal and official (English to Spanish and Spanish to English). She's a great translator because she can adapt the language so if doesn't sound "translated," but like it was originally written in English/Spanish. I will definitely keep working with Danaya!

Paula Lin is one of the greatest communicators I've ever met in the media business, able to take a job from start to finish, and do it well, on deadline, whether it's reporting on the spot news for broadcast, or the professional reading of a dedicated script. Even better - she is a very calm, considerate person who is really easy to get along with on a job - a truly delightful, dedicated co-worker you can trust with your top projects. I first met Paula when she was reporting with CNN more than 20 years ago, and knew then what a truly talented journalist she is. In the years since, I've been fortunate to see how broadcast production is just one of many skills she brings to a project. Best of all is her good character. It's always nice to have someone you enjoy working with, and you can trust on a job.

If you're looking for meticulous, precise, rule-based editing with masterful speed and efficiency, Richard's the man for the job. He dutifully followed the guidelines we provided and thoughtfully addressed the concerns we flagged beforehand. He completed the work before our deadlines - and our timeline was short! His responsiveness and professionalism are top-notch. He is a grammatical master of the English language; offering up feedback that is missed by many. I would not be surprised if he finds at least two errors in this rating.

Jackie stepped in last minute to edit a complex 30 plus page note for our clients. Her key strengths were to elevate and simplify the language via sentence construction and grammar. Her word choice selections were also impactful and helped ensure the author avoided repetition. Every change was additive and in keeping with the voice of the author. I highly recommend her as a resource, particularly as she delivered on time and within budget without delays or back and forth. Plus, she was a joy to work with—highly professional, courteous, and responsive. We will be using her again.

    I am a professional business entrepreneur and a published author. My studies include medicine, stem cell research, immunology, the human genome, creative writing, civil engineering, architecture, music production/engineering and studio recording.

    About

    I like to help bring out what really needs to be said so that people can hear, understand and connect to it. Through my high-level training in philosophy and political theory, I learned to formulate clear and consistent arguments and work with complex abstract ideas, with subtle nuances and sensitive subjects. As a teacher, I learned that truly effective communication requires a great deal of organization and clarity, while also making the material relevant and alive for the "audience".

    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.
