Amy is an excellent editor. She was my content editor for a young adult fiction series, and I found her comments enlightening and thought provoking. She is not afraid of criticizing work, but always does so in a positive and constructive manner that ultimately benefits the work. I would love to work with Amy again on future projects. Amy's insights into content editing and character development have undoubtedly made me a better writer.

      About

      As a former niche publisher and an author of eight books, countless newspaper and online opinion columns, academic papers, sermons and advertising copy, I can take on almost any kind of writing project for people who don't have the time, interest or ability to write their own material or do the research. I am also available to coach writers and to read and critique manuscripts. My background also includes: > United Press International columnist (spirituality and religion categories) > Copywriting for more than 70 CD’s (which were produced by my own company) > Publishing other authors (also coaching them on how to write their own books) > Producing scripts for spoken word recordings > Creating more than 1,000 hours of material as a radio commentator and talk show host > Interviewing (among many) Ram Dass, Karen King, Richard Bach & Stanislav Grof Working with the late Earl Nightingale, world-wide syndicated radio commentator & motivational speaker, I recorded and edited his radio scripts and motivational tape series for the Nightingale-Conant Corp. and for world-wide syndication. In the mid-1980's I created a start-up music label which grew in sales from zero to five million dollars annually in eight years. As the nature recordist for Nature Recordings, my environmental sound recordings have been played and sold in hundreds of venues, including: The Smithsonian Institution, The American Museum of Natural History, The Monterey Bay Aquarium, Hallmark giftstores, The San Diego Zoo, Virgin Records (in Europe), Disneyland and Disney World. Three years after I founded the record label, I gradually introduced recordings combining nature sounds and music (World Disc Productions), adding and managing ten recording artists who were signed exclusively with our company. My topical interest in writing is broad. Although the eight books I've written over the past decade fall into the categories of comparative religion and New Testament criticism, my other writing encompasses numerous topics and styles. I particularly enjoy academic subjects. As for newspaper and web opinion columns I've often indulged my passion for writing satire. I'm confident that I can assist you with writing projects, regardless of the subject matter. The skill of creativity and writing is ultimately the most important aspect of a finished product, whether it is research, blog entries, ghostwriting a book, writing a dissertation or developing a memoir.

      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.
