I hired Gary to edit a hard rock/heavy metal trivia book I wrote. The book contains over 1,000 questions. Gary did an amazing job with the editing, making the book much better than I had hoped for. He spent a lot of time editing for me, and he made it easy for me to make the necessary changes. He was very thorough and quick, and I highly recommend his amazing editing/writing skills to anyone.

I worked closely with Ben for a number of years in a high production environment. His quality of work did not sacrifice how quickly he could produce it. Ben consistently delivered on anything from long-form well-researched articles, to blog posts, to product copy, to social media posts, and even SEO copy or technical assignments. I still hire him to do my side projects. He's pleasant to work with and capable of writing on a wide range of topics.

I maintain a couple of blogs doing reviews and photography etc etc. Stef has helped me out numerous times with my writing. I'll have her "proof read" my work, not for spelling errors or syntax, but just for general readability. She always provides excellent suggestions on how to make my articles more coherent with wording, sentence restructuring, etc etc. I've never had to wait more than 24 hours for her help, and she's helped me every time I've asked. A couple of years ago I took a long distance walking trip. Stef helped with mapping out some of my routes, as well as doing research on a couple of areas that I was skeptical about walking through (bad neighborhoods and the like). Without even having to ask, she went the extra mile (no pun intended) and put together a little presentation for me on Google Docs. It contained maps, information on population, stats on crime rates, as well as other useful information. It was immensely helpful!

I do motivational speeches, specific and nonspecific-type poems, tailored quotes, children's books, greeting cards, short eBooks, fiction and nonfictional short stories, biographies and more. I will write essays and college papers but not over five pages. Below is a testimonial from a previous client of mine: "Helen was amazing in providing fast, affordable and well-written greeting cards. We found her on one of our most used freelance websites. Within 6 days, she had finished a full dozen greeting cards for our new, 'With Sympathy' launch, and they were a hit! We definitely will be using Helen and her services in the future again. I highly recommend Helen Londin's services." Tom Malstrom, CFO 'Blue Mountain Greeting Cards'

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.
