    Ted reviewed, edited, and made suggested revisions to my 94000 word novel. Ted is a very experienced editor. He not only caught the usual misspellings and grammatical mistakes, but revealed the proper usage of words, and insight into the different meanings of words and offered suggestions in re-phrasing. He also found where my descriptions were awkward or not accurate, and suggested better, more plausable descriptions. I was extremely impressed with his knowledge and expertise. For any writer, I would highly recommend this man for the final edit of your novel or manuscript. I rate my experience with Ted as outstanding.

    Angela Minton is a talented writer and a knowledgeable and experienced editor. Her assistance on my book improved it beyond all my expectations and really brought out the best in it. She is just as capable and professional on other types of projects. No matter what writing project you might need help and guidance with, she can handle it.

    About

    It is never really about knowing what to say. Most people can figure out what needs to be said. A great writer knows how to say it in a way that engages their audience, and makes them want to read more. Not only that, but my work in marketing and running my own businesses makes me an ideal partner for creating business content.

    Long story short: I do design. The usual stuff: logos, brands, books, labels, brochures, ads, packaging, web sites, matchbook covers, etc. I also write. The usual stuff: ads, brochures, scripts, tweets, blogs, emails, letters home, expense reports, etc. I also think strategically, tactically and obsessively about all of the above. Thanks for your consideration.

    About

    Do you need words? I got some stashed in a big pile out back. With figurative needle and thread, I will string a bunch of them up as decoration for hanging almost anywhere. I am currently working on my own book and some plays, but have nothing published to show you. Being cheap means some folks will hire me anyway. I won't promise to do anything that I don't know I can do before I commit.

    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.
