Tenisha is very willing, able and competent; she very friendly and engaging. Tenisha and I met and discussed our plans for the resume, cover letter and slide. The results were good. I liked the format better than the old format I had provided as the basis of the resume. To be honest, I added back a few things and edited a few more mainly for my business. The cover letter was great. The slide is good too and will have to edit down now that I have some guidance from my employers. I am not starting from scratch and this helps a great deal. Speaking of oil and gas, it helped that Tenisha had oil and gas experience.

Faye is easy to work with and had suggestions for the story line that were helpful. Her editing is easy to follow which makes working with the main manuscript quite manageable. I write in Scrivener but send her manuscripts copied to Word.

    she has now finished editing my story and she did a wonderful job. I know there are things about the story unless it is studied it would be difficult but she did it well.

    Suzanne is a creative and talented freelance illustrator. We were brought together through a web browser search but the relationship has grown to a collaborative partnership at its finest. While it is one thing to be an excellent artist, it is another to understand and interpret the voice of the client (author)—and Suzanne has done both for my book project. From the very first written description I sent to Suzanne, she “heard my innermost humorous voice!” She was successful in translating my brief description on the first iteration. Suzanne has sense created and delivered 24 high-quality and hilarious illustrations, which have exceeded my expectations. During the creative process she quickly made minor edits and continuously collaborated with me until each illustrations was to my satisfaction. Suzanne even provided creative suggestions to strength the subtleness of several of my illustrations. The work that Suzanne has done for me is noteworthy and I am proud to have had the opportunity to work with professional of her caliber, skills, and talent. I would recommended Suzanne for any future projects without hesitation and plan to continue our working relationship well into the future.

      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.
