    I've had excellent experiences working with Dena at Shred Communications. I've used her expertise and services for over ten years on a multitude of projects. She has written a film fundraising proposal for me where her writing was clever, imaginative and well thought out. I was able to share my vision with her and she transformed the ideas into word form. She has also written and edited several of my work resumes and biography for a professional publication. She's a hard worker that's very diligent and pays attention to every detail of the projects she takes on. Beyond that, she is just lovely to work with! MS

      Alison Sher of Epilogue Editorial was my one and only prized contract worker during the year (2014-2015). She literally carried my nonprofit to fruition while I was in graduate school to become a psychiatric nurse practitioner. Her mind is as sharp as a tack, and she can literally do anything she puts her mind to. During our professional work together, Alison was a beauty of all trades. Alison developed a comprehensive media kit for us that gained us publicity, developed the entire structure and foundation of our site on NationBuilder.com that you see here: www.JournalToSaveYourLife.org, developed our blog, and more! I cannot say enough about Alison's direct communication, contagious fervor for social entrepreneurship and impeccable class in getting everything done on time. I still work with Alison whenever I can, because she is a true gem for anyone's team effort. Feel free to email me with questions: JF@JournalToSaveYourLife.org. Hire Epilogue Editorial. You'll love your experience!

        Nathan reviewed all of my college English 1 essays. I have no doubt that if he had not helped me I would not have passed the class. His editing skills were both helpful and humorous. I just started college English 2 this semester. I am planning to use him in the same capacity this semester as well.

          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.
