    I worked with Ellen on a very large website for a prominent national franchise. She was the lead writer and editor for the project, and I was a contributing writer. I was continually in awe of Ellen's skills and talents. Not only is she an eagle-eyed editor, she's a great writer. Elleb has the ability to bring dry business stories to life, and she always finds a way to creatively approach a story. As a result of her mentorship, I'm rarely intimidated by large website writing projects. She taught me the right way to approach them!

    I had 48 hours to prepare for a big interview with 9 people when I contacted Constance. She took the job description and my resume and identified the key skill sets that both had in common. She then helped me develop a strategic approach to some questions I knew would be asked. I ended up landing the job in no small part as a result of her coaching. I highly recommend Constance.

    Marc is a pro writer. He does this writing thing right. He manages to address assignments conversationally, comfortably and in a totally readable way (as a part-time editor, I see a lot of other writers who don't always write for the reader first—but Marc gets it). He's not afraid of a bit of humor, a little attitude, even (dare we use the term) snark—but always appropriately and within the context and confines of the publication, the demographic and the subject matter. I have invited him to write for publications/projects that I oversee, and that should tell you that I trust him to come through in the style and manner I need. You should too.

    Julie is fantastic- nurturing, kind, professional and a great writing tutor. Her rates are lower than average, so the value was terrific. She is always on time or a bit early. My son loved her. We used her multiple times a week as our primary writing teacher for my 6th grader who was homeschooled at the time. I recommended her to a friend who needed a homeschool tutor due to some emotional difficulty with school and she was so grateful. Julie was the first tutor that her daughter responded to positively. Julie is kind and gentle, but firm so things get done. She will bend over backward to help a student or their parents. She has a true love of both learning and of her students. She is a wonderful person to have in your home. Peaceful, kind, personable. You will be fortunate if you are able to fit into her schedule and she into yours!!

      Beth provides a lot of service for my online marketing business. Her ideas & insights help to drive the social media & blogging components for many of my clients. She generates consistently solid material, which digs much deeper into industry-specific topics than the typical 'general overview' style of writing we've all become accustomed to. She understands the writing process, studies her subjects, and delivers results. Pete Nichols ifoundsolutions.com

        About

        I have seven years of experience with instruction of all aspects of English language arts, Latin and writing composition. In teaching, I focus on the key elements of language and composition. These include the significance of contextual evidence, literary/rhetorical device usage, the patterns consistent throughout all languages, interpretation and comprehension of literature and perfecting the stages of the writing process. I particularly emphasize skillful word usage and sentence variation in any written work as well as in rhetoric. In order to teach language structure, I teach the vital critical thinking skills necessary to analyze and interpret languages. Those invaluable problem-solving skills extend far beyond learning the grammar and vocabulary of any language. They reach across the academic curriculum and into the professional world. Guided by my instruction, students reach their academic goals and surpass their own expectations. My primary tutoring subjects are the following: * Latin (grammar, translation, interpretation and composition) * English Language Arts * Composition * Grammar * Proofreading and Editing * Writing Skills * Literature * Study Skills/Organizational Planning

I have an excellent eye for grammar and sentence structure, and this has paid off in my academic successes, as well as those I have assisted in writing college papers or other documents. My editing work recently earned a client an A on a college paper. I also write resumes, cover letters, business letters, and anything else that can be written. If you hire me, you won't be sorry!

        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.
