Karen is absolutely beyond what I expected as an editor. Not only is she outstanding in quality. She is professional and at the same time genuinely has a heart for you as a writer and cares about your work. I will never use anyone else!

Maribel is a wonderful teacher. She was always there to motivate, inspire, support and assure me. She taught me some simple & effective ways to improve my writing. She is an excellent teacher, a trusted friend and a good human being. She is committed and reliable. She suggested the right books/materials for me to read and improve my writing skills. I am fortunate to know her & learn from her. Jini.

My contact with Heather was mostly regarding tradeshows at Interface. Heather consistently exceeded my expectations with her preparation, advice, information, marketing material, etc. In my time here, the shows done under Heather's guidance were the best done and most successful shows I have participated in. She also has a great knack for researching what other vendor, especially competitors are doing, so that we stay on top of our game and she also excels at networking with show organizers to enhance our access, booth placement, and also get inside information on future events.

Jan Morrill is a lifesaver! She sat up both my blog and website for me. She did both in one day and the quality was excellent. Ms. Morrill is not only very knowledgeable but a shear delight to work with. She's witty, creative and has the patience of Job. Jan is very approachable and prompt. She answers my emails the same day usually within the hour. She took time to listen and understand what I wanted. As a writer I can not stress enough how her knowledge and expertise in setting up my blog and website saved me tons of time and frustration. I never could have done it on my own!

    Lauryn is an excellent writer. I am very impressed with her skills to make my story come to life. It is as if she was there when I was going through everything. Her innate ability with details is superb and I can't wait to work with her again! She was worth way more than I paid for her services.

    I wrote a children's book and it came out December of 2013. Although I am a writer and consider myself computer literate, I use that term loosely!! So, I am so happy to say that I met Bridgette. Without Bridgette my book would have gone out with so many errors. She found so many things that my own publisher/editor missed I was embarrassed for her. She asked me to thank Bridgette actually! I also needed a website and I was totally freaked about that but once again, Bridgette to the rescue! She created a perfect website to go along with my book and even took time to teach me a thing or too. She was very professional and easy to work with. She is so friendly and I have to say her mind is so full of ideas that she is just exciting to be around. She is what you would have called many years ago "the idea man". Well, lookout world, Bridgette is the new idea woman!

    The English language is dying, though not in the traditional sense of the word. Lost is the romance of a novel written in the vernacular and gone are the days of Shakespearean romance --lost, but not forgotten, at least not by the writers who lived by those words. I am one of those writers.

    About

    I am experienced in many facets from marketing communications and producing marketing collateral to published fictional novels.

    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.
