    Kathleen has helped me multiple times over the years. She is very creative and has an intuition about the direction you need to go. Spend just a few minutes chatting with her and you will see exactly what I saw the first time we chatted!

    Michelle helped me edit a few creative nonfiction pieces I was working for publication. Her thoughtful developmental editing helped me see flaws in he narrative arc, noticed details that were distracting to the story, and helped me see places that needed more complete explanation. Her copy editing caught many errors that my own dozen or so readings (and the proofreading of other people) missed. Because of her help, four of the eight essays she edited for me have been published in journals such as The Iowa Review and Epiphany Magazine. Her feedback is insightful and timely, and has made Michelle one of my go-to readers.

      About

      A client once said my writing was "like a breath of fresh air." I can think of no better compliment. The market is fat with thousands of copywriters who want your business. The truth is, it's very tough to find the right combination of talent and work ethic. Whether you need 20 pages of web content, a comprehensive white paper, or just a gripping turn of phrase, you need it done well -- ready to publish, ready to send to clients, ready to start working for you NOW. And you'd prefer a writer who is professional, friendly, and easy to work with. Sound about right? If so, let's talk. I'm not a newbie. I'm a "been there, done that" copywriter and web specialist with 8+ years experience providing written content for online and print mediums. Before launching my freelance business, I spent 5 years as an E-Commerce Content Manager for two major luxury retail websites, where I provided and edited web copy for product descriptions, category pages, editorial articles, and more. Prior to that, I worked as a Technical Writer for a software company, where I created end-user documentation, newsletters, and marketing materials. Now, I'm leveraging my unique mix of skills to provide companies like yours with the kind of content that makes customers sit up and take notice. Will you find writers who are cheaper or faster than me? Of course. But I'll do everything I can -- thorough research and discovery, careful crafting of words, and unlimited revisions -- to be the best. If you need it, I can write it. You've come to the right place for: - Product descriptions for e-commerce websites and catalogs - Web copy for Home pages, About Us pages, and category pages - Blogs, unique articles, reviews, and editorial content - Comprehensive white papers - SEO (search engine optimization) services, including meta titles, meta keywords, and meta descriptions - Newsletters and marketing materials Don't see what you need on this list? Contact me with your project needs and we'll talk.

Need an editor to guarantee quality control of your content and communications? I can help with that, too. Call on the "word nerd" today!

      I am willing to spell-check, ghost write, and edit anything you need. I have several spelling bee and essay contest victories under my belt, so what I lack in formal education, I make up for with experience.

      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.
