Our relationship with Steff began with her serving as our copy editor. Our manuscript concerned genealogy and history. Steff was absolutely ideal for editing our manuscript since she not only had an interest in genealogy but she had also spent time tracing her family tree. She thus understood the information we were trying to convey and ensured our writing was clear, precise, and engaging. She further assisted us by asking some questions to get us to reflect on how we felt about various matters we discussed in our journey to learn more about our ancestors. By answering those questions, our stories were less "clinical" and more emotional. Our relationship with Steff evolved once we elected to terminate our contract with a vanity press (losing 50% of our money) and to self-publish the book. Steff was extremely supportive of our decision. We read blog posts and books about self-publishing. If we had questions, we turned to Steff who provided real-world insight. At this stage, Steff was our consultant to assist with getting the book published. We selected a graphic artist (to design the book cover), an information designer (for the interior), and an indexer. Steff provided feedback, made suggestions about what to ask these professionals, and developed a checklist of tasks to be completed. Further, Steff provided examples of author's websites and participated in an initial conference call with the web designer. She provided an extensive review and feedback regarding the website. Without Steff's participation as the copy editor and then as a consultant, our dream of publishing our book would not have been realized. We have self-published a non-fiction book, which has many more details to coordinate and organize versus a fiction book. Our book has a preface, foreword, introduction, table of contents, table of illustrations, table of tables, 334 end notes, and an index. Our book (There Is Something About Edgefield) was published in November 2017 (e-book and paperback) and is available on Amazon. We HIGHLY recommend Steff.

Amy is one of those rare talents that utilizes both her left and right brain. She is equally gifted technically and creatively. I have hired her to create my resume, power point presentations, magazine layouts, marketing brochures, press releases, blog posts and even research, develop and write a short documentary. She is an accomplished renaissance talent in many areas and I can't recommend her enough.

I wanted to start a new business called The Creators Kitchen. I didnât know where to start. I didn’t know where to go for business cards, letterheads, envelopes or anything! Then one of my church buddies told me about Robin Axtell Design Graphics. I contacted him and we scheduled a meeting. When we met, I told him what I wanted to accomplish (teach others how to select organic food and eat properly) and he told me what I needed to do to get there. We determined that I needed a logotype and stationery package, press releases, teaching materials and a website. I really had no idea what to expect (as I am totally techNO illiterate), but the products he designed for me greatly exceeded anything I could have imagined. He took piles of information and created everything I needed. His prices were very competitive, turn around time was far less than I expected and the design and production was beyond anything I’ve ever experienced. He does great work! I’m more than happy to recommend him to anyone who needs help getting their business off the ground and their graphic and website design created or to spruce up current websites and stationary. I honestly believe that I recived much more than I paid for. Look us up on our website: www.thecreatorskitchen.com.less

    As an event organizer Ms Small has written many press releases that were outstanding for our professional women's group (WIN) In addition she conducted resume workshops and personally prepared updated resumes for the professionals in our group. I am currently traveling and internet access is spotty at best. Please know that I value Ms Small's creativity, completion in a timely fashion. She went above and beyond what was required. Ms Small would be an asset to any creative organization.

        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.
