David had responded to a Craigslist post I had made requesting the services of a writer to formulate my artist biography for publicity purposes. Amidst a slew of amateur responses, the professional demeanor in which David initiated our correspondence made me realize he might be the one, but that he would probably be far beyond my budget. I had never had a proper artist biography before and was overwhelmed by the process, but David guided me through with a fool proof, open-ended survey that would help me describe my life experiences as well as my history as an artist in a succinct manner. He assured me that he would know how to edit my lengthy responses since the survey was the same one he'd become accustomed to using for his company as editor-in-chief of MUTE Magazine, and he was right! When I received the final product, I was astonished! David's turnaround time was so prompt, and he was welcoming of any additional edits I had in mind. When I braced myself for the cost of the bio, David surprised me once again by not bursting my budget, and even asking if he could feature me in his magazine! As I've gotten to know David since our chance meeting, I've learned that he is genuinely the professional that he exudes on a daily basis. By hiring him, you will get the quality you desire with no corners cut!

Working with Lauren, who is truly "The Writing Guru", was what I needed to take my business to the next level. I was a bit overwhelmed knowing how to craft my brand message, voice and core content in starting my business. Lauren asked the right questions to understand what I liked and why I liked it to help my business come to life. And she didn't stop advising or editing content until I was satisfied with our final outcome. I would definitely recommend Lauren and her services to anyone who is interested in taking their business to the next level. Lauren brings valuable life experience and a strong academic background to her work. Writing Guru for You was very affordable and the perfect help I needed to get me to where I am today.

    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.
