As someone who has never tried to have anything I've written professionally edited, with the hopes of publishing, the steps after writing were confusing, intimidating, and somewhat daunting. After speaking with Melanie at great length about what I was looking for, I knew I had found the person I wanted to work with. She's made the entire process more pleasant than I had imagined, works hard, offers great advice, and genuinely seems to have the best interest of the project at heart. Couldn't have made a better choice.

I absolutely loved working with Desaree! She was extremely helpful and communicated with me in a timely fashion. If I could give her 10 stars, I would!

    Starla was generous in sharing her expertise with the English language and helped me improve the writing quality of my dissertation. As a non-native English speaker with a reasonably good grasp of the spoken and written English language, I had reached a dead end while improving the quality of my dissertation. Her incredible editorial help was instrumental in helping me complete my dissertation to the satisfaction of my committee.

    Cassie is an excellent help! She has been helping me edit my papers and published articles for a while now, and there is no one I trust more than her to provide me with such positive, constructive criticism. She is dedicated and honest. Because of her, my writing and grades have improved tremendously!

      Aided in writing résumés and cover letters with outstanding results. Highly recommend


      Hi - I am Desiree Leos, President of DL Professional Writing Services. Over the course of my own career, I have witnessed professional after professional fall short in the material they present for an upcoming interview. That, unfortunately, is the reality of the world we live in. Many do not see the value in investing in customized pre-employment material. If you are reading this now, do not allow yourself to fall into that same trap. You deserve your cover letter and resume to be well-written. Please allow me the opportunity to work with you in writing yours for you.


      I start by exploring the idea with the clock off! To get a feeling of the customer needs and to develop the basic design idea. I then discuss it with the customer if it blooms then I get into the development.


      I offer writing and editing services in the Brazos Valley and beyond. I have a Ph.D. in the humanities, three years of experience working in a writing center, and nearly a decade of experience with business and technical writing in the private sector. I can help with any of your writing needs.


      I am the author of "Pain Burns Deep", I love writing fiction stories and non-fiction stories that cater to the issues women face.


      I have dedicated all of my continuing education toward being able to offer a wide-range of services. Due to my broad studies I am now able to offer marketing, consulting, social media management/marketing/consulting, branding, logo design, social graphic design, content writing/editing/marketing, and three levels of resume design. All of these skills are just the beginning of what I can do to be of service to you, and to your business. I am skilled in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and several other Creative Cloud products. If there is something that is not listed in this description that you believe may fall under one of my listed skillsets, please don't hesitate to reach out. It is nearly impossible to cover all of the aspects of marketing, SEO, and content that I am experienced in without writing an entire essay.


      I am a former IT professional that proofread and wrote technical and other materials for customers. I am very proficient in editing, proof reading and writing.


      Real people can get lost in the global market. Hopewell Kat Media is here to get to know you and your needs. The smaller the scale, the better. Deep discount online sites can't offer personalized, face-to-face services, and big-city agencies can't offer the right prices for small-town, homegrown businesses. We can meet the needs of individuals and small businesses that too often "fall through the cracks" of pricing structures. Contact Kathy for a free, in-person consultation for your small business or individual media, writing, photography, and web design needs.


      I'm a writer, but take jobs editing. I specialize in fiction, but have advanced degrees in History, Religion, and Educational Leadership which allow me to do thorough research for nonfiction also.

      I am a Houston-area technical writer and internal communications specialist with experience in business process documentation, SharePoint site maintenance and how-to instructions. Here are some of the things I can help you with: Newsletter - writing/editing/proofreading, setup, layout/design Visio drawing - creation, formatting PowerPoint slide deck - creation, formatting, branding Poster or flyer - copy, layout/design, printing Report - formatting, branding, layout, editing/proofreading


      EDITING AND PROOFREADING Every writer needs an editor! It's true. No matter how many times we reread our own writing, we tend to make errors in punctuation, usage, etc. The problem is that we see what we expect to see instead of what is really on the page. Also, knowing what we mean to say, we think our text is perfectly clear. That's not always true. A fresh pair of eyes is the only solution. Do commas and semicolons bedevil you? I know where they need to be added and removed. Are you uncertain about the difference between further and farther, continuously and continually, or fewer and less? Don't worry; I will take care of it. I'll minimize the use of passive voice and deal with subjunctive mood on your behalf. From brochures to book length manuscripts, I stand ready to help businesses, organizations, and individuals. Put your best foot forward with clear, correct English. WRITING Perhaps you don't have the time or inclination to write it yourself. You can give me your raw material or topic, and I will compose the piece for you. I have been published in many newspapers (e.g., The San Francisco Chronicle and The Charlotte Observer) and on websites across North America. My weekly humor column was distributed by the Knight-Ridder/Tribune wire service.


      Need crafty content for your blog? Unique, professional blog writing and articles at affordable rates! Additional services, such as editing and rewriting, available.


      I'm a technical writer and editor with 20+ years of experience. Former employers and clients include Rice University, McGraw-Hill, BAE Systems, US Army, U.S. Marine Corps, and Hewlett Packard. My special talent is taking what you said or wrote and turning it into what you meant.

      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.
