Verified review

Katie is a dream to work with. Her time is reasonably priced, the turn-around time was quick, and deliverables spectacularly well thought-out. Katie worked with me on creating a style guide for a website. I've struggled finding writers who can be exposed to information, understand the style, and then adapt it. Katie is truly someone who "just gets it."

Ellen Margulies

    Verified review

    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!

    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.

      Christie has a strength in articulation with complicated subjects that require a lot of research. She is a very focused and self-motivated writer.

      Stephanie has been a shining star on our team of freelance writers. I'm always excited to read the articles she's written for us. As an editor working in the mental health and addiction recovery field, the subject matter can be tricky and often needs to be handled in a sensitive manner because our goal is to help people find their way in recovery and not feel stigmatized. I can always count on Stephanie to write the articles assigned to her with a voice that is compassionate, empathetic, approachable, creative, thoughtful and intelligent. The quality of her work shows that she deeply cares about the subject matter at hand, and she can handle a wide range of topics. She's written on topics that range from lighthearted to very heavy, and has an incredible way of making all of it relatable and less intimidating. Her turn-around time and responsiveness to assignments is quick and highly reasonable. She's quick to clarify if she has any questions regarding an assignment, and if I need any major changes (a very rare occurrence), she handles it efficiently. Stephanie Thomas is an absolute gem to work with!


      If you can conceive it, I can write it. I will professionally research anything you need written and write it to your standards. I currently write content for several different Web sites and I am always looking for new projects to take on. I offer a per-word rate as opposed to an hourly rate so you know exactly what you're paying based on your word count expectations, and rates are negotiable!

      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.
