I worked with Rick on developing numerous projects and found his attention to detail, punctuality, and professionalism to be second to none. His writing skills are excellent and he always over delivers. He has a wealth of knowledge in a wide variety of areas from modern art, technical writing, emergency preparedness, to children's nursery rhymes. I will be utilizing Rick for many projects to come and highly recommend his service.

Karen helped me edit a statement of objective, and she did an outstanding job, she paid attention and fixed every little thing I asked of her, she also went out of her way to do extra research and make sure that my statement of objective matches the criteria they were asking for. Karen kept her promise and got the job done on time, if not a little early. I would highly recommend her.

I have used James in the past for many projects not just for myself but for my customers as well. I do not have any problem recommending him as I know the quality of his work and that the end product will not leave you disappointed. You will have the quality content you need to post on your website, blog, report or anything else that involves content writing/editing. Thanks, James!

    An amazing editor. Not only shfixed all the Grammer issues I had in my cover letter, but she took a look at my resume and helped me write about skills I had on the resume but did not show in my cover letter. I will definitely be coming back to her again for any editing I will need in the future.

    About

    Hey there! I'm an Austin based professional by way of my hometown, San Antonio. I've been a fan of words, so to speak, since high school. After learning how they should and shouldn't be used, it always drove me crazy to see mistakes made left and right! But, I get that nobody is perfect. I'm just one of those people who would like to try and be as close to it as possible. So, I can assure you that my work will be of high quality. As someone who happens to also be a classically trained singer, the bit of perfectionism that was instilled in me also plays a role in my desire to be as successful as possible. I've been both a Chair and President for two non-profit organizations and was tasked with executing a lot of publications, newsletters, public announcements, event flyers and much more. Aside from this, my previous jobs required me to maintain website information, design logos, create newsletter articles and present to audiences. At the end of the day, I want to be successful in helping you to be successful. There's no need to feel limited in your work with me here to help you!

    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.
