About

My work stands out from others because I care deeply about the quality of my work. I want to do my very best work as a writer or editor. Although I have years of experience at writing and editing, my desire to excel has never been blunted.

About

I have assisted an author for the past 15 years. She has successfully published and sold 7 books. I prefer to do the majority of the work but internet and phone with periodic personal visits. My goal as an editor is to locate errors in manuscripts, point out areas where story line is awkward or confusing and assist the author during writer's block times.

About

I am a writing business that is willing to edit papers, resumes, and other writing. I do this for businesses and individuals looking to produces professional documents. I have a bachelors degree in Creative Writing and English from SNHU. I am willing to review any paper big or small, and make sure that my clients are represented by accurate paperwork.

About

I have written for many business professionals who know how they want to portray themselves and/or their products. This experience has honed my writing skills and my ability to ensure a successful outcome. I have a knack for earnestly focusing on each individual client and adapting the writing style to reflect that person. I know which questions to ask to help you define the end result, and I am comfortable doing so. This talent comes in handy when I interview informational contributors. Working as an editor for several magazines has developed a keen editing eye. My experience includes proofreading entire publications before they go to the printer or are officially posted online. To be honest, as I research online I find scads of mistakes. My eye goes right to them. Whether you need writing or editing, I will treat you like you are my only client. I truly enjoy getting to know different people and concentrating on each personality with single-mindedness. I do so with grace and respect, which is pretty rare these days.

About

Well, I'll answer later. I've entered this so I can save and move on to the next step.

About

`As a freelance editor, I have spent much of my time reading through and commenting on manuscripts to help make the work better and make my clients better writers. The more I’ve worked in this capacity as an editor, the more I have realized my passion for not just making quality work but for helping people become better at what they do. I currently contract out with Covenant Communications, Inc, to evaluate fiction and nonfiction manuscript submissions to determine if they are ready to be published or not. I also work part-time as an adjunct instructor, teaching college writing courses, at Weber State University as I get my Masters Degree in English. My previous employers include Brigham Young University professors, independent authors, and Jolly Fish Press, a fiction publishing house based out of Provo, UT. I am willing to contract out with you for the following services: developmental editing, copyediting, and proofreading. As an editor, my main goal is to make an author's work accurate, concise, and effective. I pledge to do no harm to a manuscript. My priority is to respect an author's viewpoints and to politely, accurately respond to an author's questions. As an editor, I value straightforward, clear communication with the authors with whom I work.

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.
