Colleen is really special. I’ve been working with her for the past few months on a diverse range of creative, academic, and emotional goals: she is helping me develop my Master’s Thesis at Columbia University, publish my first zine of comics, and proactively plan and prioritize my life from a place of independence and strength. Colleen’s specific toolset and background are perfectly suited to provide practical support as well as creative inspiration in each of these areas. As a creative herself, she has pointed me towards references and directions that are spot-on and invigorating, while at the same time offering a larger structure and organization for my work that allows me to actually get things done. One of the most concrete benefits I’ve experienced from working with Colleen is a huge improvement in my productivity and mood during the work day. Colleen crafts personalized schedules for my day based on neuroscience, and as a result I have literally doubled my essay-writing speed. Colleen is incredibly talented on an emotional level as well: she creates a safe space and time that is just for me, and I can tell that she is really listening and actively thinking about my goals because of her invariably insightful responses. It’s been wonderful having such a supportive partner in my life, and best of all, it is so fulfilling to actually accomplish goals that I’ve dreamt about for a long time. Colleen is magic – her coaching is the best thing to enter my life in a long time and she has my highest, most enthusiastic recommendation.

I am more than happy to write this testimonial in relation to the website design and development company Swift Whale Creative and its Studio Director, Anne Weeks. I am happy to do so for two reasons; firstly: I now have a website which makes my writing stand out in the crowd of cyberspace sites. I am a writer and author, poet and publisher, researcher and scholar in the evening of my life. My website is the venue for marketing my work and in the three months my site has been on the world-wide-web(21/3/'11 to 21/6/'11) it has shone brightly in the pantheon of my competitors. I don't expect to be famous or rich, but I want to and expect to be read and this expectation has been more than satisfied in just these three months of the presence of my site on the net. Secondly, I was involved in negotiating the style and content, the strategy and the many fine details of what is and was my complex and extensive site with Anne Weeks, the Studio Director, from the preliminary phase of my site's construction in September 2010 until after my site went live in March 2011. My site has some 72 categories and sub-categories of my writing and content and several million words. It's a relatively big slice of cyberspace given the infinity of space in that parallel universe. Anne possessed many qualities that made this 8 month process of getting my site on the interent the relatively easy road that it was. I write and have written 1000s of emails in the last ten years of my life on the internet and I know how easy it is to say the wrong thing and upset the sensitivities of my readers, friends and associations, without even trying--indeed, in the process trying to put one's best foot foreward, so to speak. Anne was consistently: patient, diplomatic, understanding of my needs and desires, prompt to reply to my myriad requests for information and ideas, a provider of explanations which were simple to follow, a skilled co-ordinator and facilitator between myself and Daniel Sullivan and the rest of the Swift Whale Creative team. I have no trouble in recommending Anne and Swift Whale Creative to others who want to design and build a framework for their websites using the user friendly CMS system. Indeed, I would be more than happy to provide even more of a testimonial over the phone(03-63824790), by email(ronprice@gmail.com), or snailmail(6 Reece Street, George Town, Tasmania, Australia, 7253) since my writing is out there in the world getting 1000s, indeed, hundreds of thousands of readers thanks to the work of Swift Whale Creative and the team, Anne Weeks, Daniel Sullivan and, of course, myself---since I have become even more of an internet entrepreneur as well. Yours sincerely Ron Price George Town Tasmania

Deborah Drake is incredible! I was first introduced to Deb over a year ago, after she invited me to be a part of her weekly writing group we affectionately called “Tuesday’s with Deborah” or better known to us as “A Writers Support Group for Reticent Bloggers.” She created a safe haven for writers and bloggers to incubate their ideas and share thoughts weekly. Which turned out to be some of the best inspiration, not only for my writing, but for my business as well. I have also had the opportunity to work with her on my first book, “The Art of Working for Yourself” which she was my editor and voice on my shoulder, helping me get out of my own way. I have to thank her for helping me keep my writing voice as the project went along. As tough as the process sometimes was for me, Deb was pivotal in making sure I stayed on track and helped me flush out ideas from the cover to my bio. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. What more can I say, Deb is good at what she does.

It is with genuine enthusiasm that I recommend Lynn Murphy as a writer, editor, and editorial project manager. Lynn is exceptionally smart and strategic, quickly grasping all relevant data and key points of emphasis, and then communicates in clear and concise prose to suit any business project. At the same time, she has a woman's keen intuition and insight that make her equally well suited for more sensitive subjects and assignments. Lynn also has an editor's eye for great versus more common writing, whether on more complicated subjects or with the simple turn of a phrase that results in the most compelling communication. Net, she can write for you or make your writing better. Importantly, Lynn has invaluable experience in the high-octane world of Hollywood television and film. She brings fire-hardened skills in working successfully under pressure and in a more visible environment with lofty expectations. Finally, and perhaps most significantly, Lynn is a wonderful colleague and teammate. She's punctual, delivers her work on time and on the mark, and always delights with the outcome. She is truly a pleasure with whom to work, and I recommend her most highly. I

I have hired No to the Quo a number of times on projects ranging from the small social media campaign to a national film release, their work ethic was the same on all of them. They have over-delivered on all of our projects. They execute with efficiency and speed. They make this convoluted landscape of digital media easy to navigate. I highly recommend using them at every possible opportunity.

I'm an author. And I'm a writer. And I'm a very good writer. So why did I ask Message Glue to craft all the messaging for my entire website when I could have done this work myself? One reason: Ken Boynton's writing packs a punch. He simply knows how to cleverly & effectively condense information so people reading his words get a quick & meaningful understanding. Website readers simply don't have time to read long, wordy paragraphs. What Message Glue gives me every time, really, is magic. And for this reason, I trust Ken and his company for all my communications.

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.
