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!

My work stands out from others because I am blissfully ignorant of whom I have no business calling for an interview. I am also extremely creative about locating experts to interview for articles while being tirelessly dedicated to deadlines.

Rather than pulling from pre-made lesson plans and templates, I work with students to determine their individual needs and conduct tailor-made classes. Also, I am able to work with a variety of ages and skill-levels (i.e. American 7th-grader writing an essay, French ESL restaurateur looking to perfect communication skills).

About

Most people feel that the writing is the fun part, and that editing, proofreading and even research are pretty dull. So, I will do the "dull" part for you. I have outstanding skills and experience in copy editing, proofreading and research (internet and traditional). I work with writing/research of all types: academic, business, fiction, non-fiction, marketing, even legal (I have a J.D. and have taught legal research and writing). I am willing to utilize a sliding scale for student work.

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.

About

I specialize in writing, public relations, event planning and photography. Past projects have included web site content, newsletters, annual reports, magazine articles, ad copy, and scripts for events and electronic media. I have planned and executed numerous events from award shows to business after hours, state of the city addresses and wedding receptions. No matter what I do, I want clients to have fun with the projects and really enjoy the events.

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.
