If you are looking for fast and professional editing, Jay is the person for you! He is extremely prompt via phone or email. I had used his help for my medical school essays, and he made sure all my responses were grammatically correct and enjoyable to read. If you are utilizing your writing to further your career, I highly suggest hiring Jay to ensure perfectness on your application. Thank you Jay, and I hope your services help many more like me! Feedback: I would have liked it more if you could have given more suggestions to improve the essay by editing/rephrasing the sentences.

Working with Melanie was wonderful! I came to her since I needed help in improving my SAT Reading and Writing scores (which they did!), and after a few sessions, I definitely felt ready for the test. The sessions took place in her home, which was nice and cozy. Melanie was great at giving feedback on my essays, and I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a good SAT English tutor.

I have worked with Andria since 2012, and I can easily say that she is one of most amazing professionals I have ever worked with. She helped publish my first book! The process was seamless and positive. She has also edited my weekly blogs for several years. Andria is really superb at her craft as a writer. She excels at both editing or writing fresh content. She also has great experience in publishing including overseeing book layout and design. If you want to write, or publish anything from articles, to blogs, to books, you cannot find a better person to work with. Moreover, Andria is a wonderful professional and human being. She is always prompt, has never missed a deadline as long as we have worked together, and her work is always high quality. Andria is super kind, pleasant, patient and affirming! I look forward to working with Andria for many years to come. Wes Saade M.D.

Alexandra helped me with my resume while I was looking to make a move into a different industry (from consulting to non-profit). She helped identify areas for me to focus on more prominently and her experience in multiple fields allowed her to give me targeted advice on how to edit each of those sections. Highly recommended and always extremely professional!

Mary Ann prepared a prenuptial dinner speech poem for me about my bride-to-be. It meshed well with the one the bride-to-be wrote about me. I had a preview copy which I shared with Mary Ann. Mary Ann responded quickly, asked appropriate backgrounding questions, and captured the message I wanted to convey. Well done.

About

My editing career began in high school when my friends kept referring me to other friends because I had a way of helping them write what they meant to say.

For me, it's the greatest kind of puzzle with a valuable reward.

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.
