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!

I was thrilled to have Sharon write my resume and cover letter! I was concerned about having to go back to work full-time after being at home with my children.

      Dr. Tanginika is fantastic! I am so blessed to have found her. I was having a lot of trouble moving my dissertation forward and getting it approved. I found an ad about her services on Craigslist and I was skeptical. Once I contacted her, I knew she was the one who could help me. Her service is personable, she really understand what you are going through and literally mentors you throughout the process. She is an academic writer, a psychologist, and a friend. She took my dissertation, turned it around and I was able to get approved and graduate. I thank heaven for putting Dr. Tanginika in my path.

      I mentor writers at any age: new writers developing their craft, and writers who have completed a book and could use ongoing advice on the business side of being an author, and finding the proper channels to publish and market your book. As a self-publisher, I wrote and published an award-winning novel, Shadows in the Mist, that won a gold medal in the 2007 IPPY Awards. I later sold that book to a NY publisher and a German publisher. I recently negotiated a book deal for my second novel, Dead of Winter (due out October 2011). I am currently at work on two books, my third novel, Skinners, and a non-fiction historical book that I am ghostwriting for a client. For anyone interested in working with me over several sessions to improve your book and your career as an author, contact me and we can discuss a rate. To contact me today.

      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.
