Awesome in every way possible! Margaret quoted a precise price and responded immediately to another question I had regarding time. Within 24 hours of the quote, my article was returned with perfection! I have already referred a colleague to her for editing. I look forward to developing a writer/editor relationship with Margaret. I highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed!

A skilled writer, he responded quickly and provided service on the same day. Prof. Gerace helped me make my writing tighter and more succinct, and to clarify jargon that might not be obvious to my intended audience. It is not always easy to take criticism (aka constructive feedback), but he was objective and very kind in his comments. I'm thrilled with the way this project turned out, and I would work with him again in a heartbeat.

I had a great experience with Write for life, David T. I would work with him again on other projects in the near future. As a beginner writer, he listened to my voice, and develop the style to a professional level. Thank you.

Kate is easy and fun to work with. She has an intuitive approach. She is a good listener. I interviewed 6 writers (1 in Canada, 5 in US) before talking with Kate and I decided to go with Kate for 3 reasons: 1- her high-quality is worth more than its cost. 2 - she leaves nothing on the table, she is going to write it out and in a timely manner; without delay. 3 - her interview for my bio write-up was so thoughtful. Meaning, at one point I said to Kate, "I was hoping you were going to ask me about that." I've included a picture of my bio. The best part about working with Kate on my bio is that she aspires to capture your story and her writing technique is so good that whatever your story her writing adapts. Just know, if you work with Kate she is going to nail it! #thumbtack

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.

I hired Neyeah as a tutor for my daughter last year. My daughter was in class with Neyeah's younger brother in which he was always on the Honor Roll. My daughter is actually the one who brought it to my attention that Neyeah tutors him. I was able to get her to tutor my daughter 3x a week for about an hour each session. They worked on reading, math, and writing. My daughter was struggling in these courses . While under Neyeah she placed on the Honor Roll every month! It was astounding. She even got the award for Most Improved Student. Neyeah is amazing--truly genuine and loves kids. The only reason why she's not my daughters tutor now is because we now live in different states. However , highly recommended!

I thought JT was great to work with. He really took the time to speak with me and get my vision for where I wanted my content to go and say. If you are considering a content writer, I would highly recommend JT as he takes his time and gets it done right.

Rosemary Donahue is a writer’s dream. From the very first conversation, she was supportive and attentive. She took my rather weak pitch and helped me shape it into a much better piece, by opening me up to perceptions and nuances that I might not otherwise have considered. Another plus is that she responds quickly and thoroughly, so that I felt we were really on the same team.

    I had hired Happy Resumes (Rebecca - RH) along with another resume writer, to work on 2 slightly varying aspects of my resume (as I also felt it'd be good to get slightly differing perspectives). RH Resumes totally blew the other one out of the water (check my other review to see what a disaster the other one was). Right from the first call, I felt like RH really knew what she was talking about - and more importantly listening to what I was saying rather than pitching her services and ability. She also send me a bunch of formats to choose from so she had an idea of which ones I preferred - though she gave her professional opinion on which formats to use depending on my background. She was quite prompt in sending the first draft as well; I found some of the points I mentioned to her in our first call appear in well-formed/formatted concise sentences in the first draft. I was very pleased with her very first draft as it surpassed my expectations. What I was impressed with was the crux of my accomplishments were preserved while cutting down the superfluous details that I had initially found quite hard to trim (as I was too close to it). Though we went through a couple of rounds of tweaking, she was very open to my suggestions, and was prompt in trying to slightly different formats based on my suggestions. Her willingness to truly listen, get a good understanding of my expectation right from the beginning while working with a format/template structure that I had chosen initially, and delivering a stellar first draft, makes her one of the best resume authors I've worked with. She could be easily charging a bit more for her services for the type of work she did. I'd highly recommend her any day. Thanks RH!

    The writer was extremely professional, overall the quality of the paper was amazing. Additionally, the writer worked with me to ensure that my paper satisfied me and met my needs. The writer constantly asked me my opinion on the paper before making any durastic changes. Being that I was on a very strict deadline, I was both amazed and surprised that the writer was very diligent in making sure my deadline was met.

    Virginia helped me write content for my website. When I first met with Virginia I was all over the place and didn’t know what I wanted to say or had too much to say. She guided me through the process of coming up with content and asked key questions to help narrow down what my content would be. In the end she took my jumble thoughts and created concise clear wording about my company. I learned more from working with Virgina than I imagined and don’t have anything to change. She is extremely professional, engaging and thorough.

    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.
