I am pleased to write this review for Janie. I needed a piece I wrote edited and proofread but was concerned to be turning it over to a "stranger". I took the chance with Janie and she was a perfect choice. She was quick, responsible, knowledgable and sensitive to the piece. She cleaned it up, making it presentable and making me look like I knew shat I was doing. She can be sure that with the next thing I need to submit to publishers I will call her and no longer Ghost Busters.

Great writing comes from knowing what questions to ask first. Mike knows what questions to ask and how to sculpt copy to your needs from your responses. He's efficient, knowledgable and easy to get along with. Quality is second to none, especially if you're needing high-end concept work.

I hired Kathleen to write sales copy and news releases for a new telecourse program that we were offering. Kathleen did an outstanding job. She asked the right questions, was very detailed, made adjustments as necessary and I was thrilled with the final copy. She was a pleasure to work with, and I look forward to working with her again. I highly recommend Kathleen for any sales copy and news releases that you might need! Mia Turpel Founder Performance Support Partners, LLC

Linda provided editorial review for several of my short stories. Her standards are impeccable, her work prompt and always appropriate. I recommend her and expect to use her again. The stories were better for it: tighter, cleaner and more direct.

    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.
