I've referred a number of my writer clients to Erika Carter for editorial services, and she's done a terrific job of helping them bring their projects to full realization. She has a keen and discerning editorial eye, both on the sentence level and for broader structural questions, and as an author herself, she has an intuitive sense of how to work with writers in a supportive and constructive spirit. Highest recommendation! Henry Dunow, Literary Agent

At the very beginning of our working relationship, Jane spent a GREAT deal of time helping me narrow down what the specific and unique focus of my book was, and the time she took to help me with this critical foundational aspect of the whole book was monumentally important. In similar fashion, she devoted a lot of time and expertise toward helping me identify and promote myself as a legitimate author whose voice and authority are valid and necessary. Then throughout the writing and editing stages, Jane engaged herself in the work not only as a copy editor but also as a potential consumer/reader of the book, which pushed me to make the content more coherent and more accessible to the reader. In addition to her knowledge and skills regarding format, style, and grammar, she has a good sense of how to maximize a book's chances of attracting, maintaining, and rewarding its readers. Additionally, throughout the entire project, Jane was just as attentive to what the book meant to ME, the author, as she was to what the book would mean to the reader. Overall, I enjoyed the working relationship that Jane and I had, and she helped me to grow in so many ways.

Lisa Bacon edited a book for me in 2014. We had an excellent and congenial working relationship as she was efficient, timely, and extremely helpful with suggestions and corrections. We worked together almost entirely via e-mail and a few phone calls, a system that was convenient, and time-saving for us both. I highly recommend her editing and proofing abilities and would call on her services again in the future without hesitation.

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.
