John Acker is an excellent editor. His incisive editing helped me with one of the most difficult business writing tasks: writing a cover letter. His timely and generous comments improved my cover letter significantly. Thanks in no small part to his editing work, my newly professional, audience-oriented cover letter allowed me to better demonstrate my skills to the hiring committee. I got the job!

For more than 35 years, I've been a copywriter for the Fortune 20. Over the past several years, Stephanie and I have collaborated on many major copywriting projects with both national and global impact. Not only is she creative, she's also strategic--understanding that great copy begins with an effective message. For years I've said, "You have to know what to say, before you say it." Stephanie not only gets it, she lives it. And the result is clear in every word she writes. There are plenty of copywriters out there. But for any organization that wants to communicate the true heart of its value, hire Stephanie. You'll benefit from her clear thinking, solid professionalism--and perhaps most importantly--her track record of producing significant results.

I have hired Joshua to work directly with authors for developmental editing, marketing support and project management. He is diligent and the authors appreciate his insightful feedback and instruction. They often describe it as having private classes rather than hiring an editor. I find his work to be intuitive and skilled.

    Mikaela is a strong writer who is passionate about social media and storytelling. I worked with Mikaela has a producer, which gave me the opportunity to witness her talent first hand. The pieces she created were always creative, concise, well written and properly vetted. She was an active partner in the editing process, which helped us all to put the best product on-air. Additionally, Mikaela continuously works to improve her skills in order to meet the changing needs of the media industry. This is evident in her work on social media. Her pages display engaging content that is posted on a consistent schedule. She also knows the importance of interacting with her followers to create a deeper tie to her brand. I would highly recommend Mikaela to my friends and current employer.

    I first worked with him several decades ago and found him an indispensable and congenial partner, and a master of language. Recently, his book on grammar impressed me with its concise and eloquent teachings. I would recommend him for any editing job. Happy to talk with anyone about him.

    Alice has written several pieces for our publication, and we were pleasantly surprised at how quickly she got up-to-speed in the subject matter – and with her ability to grasp the overall concepts of our organization and newsletter. As a result, we were able to trust Alice to do the job with little oversight and no hand-holding – and we couldn't have been more pleased with the results. She's a quick study and a true professional.

    As a fellow (and quite accomplished) copywriter, I wanted Alexa to review my own copy portfolio—including spec work that I was doing for a large brand at the time. Not only does she have a sharp eye for editing and grammar, but she's equally skilled with conceptual work or tapping into a specific consumer demographic. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alexa for content creation, editing or larger marketing strategy.

    So you want to "say what you want to say," clearly and correctly. I can help you with that! For some reason I have this dictionary in my head and the editing process seems to be a natural outcome of my detail-oriented personality. I have worked for years in public and private institutions, and with many different groups of people. I worked on my own communication skills also as a volunteer instructor as well as a college instructor and adult (employee health and safety) trainer. So - Give me your phrases, your subjects and verbs, I will help them flow and link together to deliver the message you are trying to say. Let your voice speak Louder, Better, with an editor (me:)! I am a former environmental scientist transformed into a technical editor and writer. In the past I have drafted procedural documents, performed regulatory research, performed technical editing, and analyzed data. I summarized data and wrote reports, proposals, and instructional texts. I have managed survey sessions and feedback sessions. I have produced small group training, developed classroom materials and public presentations. I have also acted as classroom instructor and trainer. In order to become a more developed communicator and to improve my writing skills, I returned (2003-2006) to Miami University's Master's program and studied English. I can help you navigate audience, and the changes in technology, with the tools that I gained in graduate school. I have worked as a technical writer for Battelle Memorial Institute, The U.S. Dept. of Defense Finance and Accounting Services, American Institutes for Research, Inc., NCS Pearson Education, Ohio Department of Natural Resources,The Southwest Ohio Evaluation and Assessment Center, The Discovery Center, Miami University's Department of Educational Psychology, and Parson's Engineering Science,

    About

    I miss editing and writing, being an ex-reporter. As a former newspaperman and copy editor, I gravitated to computer typesetting. Then I expanded into systems engineering as part of 22 years of running news editing and photo archiving systems for a major metropolitan daily. The business flourished telling people that Y2K was bunk, then morphed into computer forensics. I used my systems engineering background to put child pornographers in prison, working with police and attorneys. Now I would like to do a little editing for people or maybe some writing, as I close out a career that also included a 28 affliction as a practicing Ohio attorney.

    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.
