Resumes are $50. Other services will cost anywhere from $25-50 per hour depending on the type of work and the deadline for completion. .

Writing of resumes, business plans, assistance with grant applications, and even publishing novels or other written works.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
