i have used Laurel Airica's services on more than one occasion. She worked on my website and transformed it from something ordinary into something extraordinary. She has a way of discovering what makes you uniquely you and then with her incredible command of the language, she paints an astonishingly truthful and insightful portrait. She also edited an article I was submitting to a national journal in the U.K. and it was accepted largely due I believe to her brilliance. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

    Dave is a very responsive and fast copyeditor. He helped me with my letters of intent and admission essays for graduate school. What I learned from Dave, greatly influenced my acceptance into the graduate school I wanted to attend while leaving an indelible mark on how I understand the process of writing. I highly recommend consulting with Dave if you need help with a specific piece or general development of your writing skills.

        I could not more highly recommend Sean as your accomplice for any writing projects. Hire this talented wordsmith and you will not be disappointed. Sean has edited many of my personal essays, academic papers, blogs as well as copy for my business website. He has also written fantastic articles for various online magazines in Portland, Oregon. I find his eye for detail impeccable and his comprehension of the essential elements of story to be vast and impressive. This man knows what keeps the reader interested and engaged, what moves the reader emotionally and causes them to read on. Sean has a way with words that is artistic and precise. He has a clear and overarching vision, while maintaining a masterful ability to attend to the finer details of many written genres spanning from journalism to personal essay, and fiction to creative non-fiction.

        Alex is the most imaginative writer I have ever read. If you want something unique--turn to Alex. He wrote the "back of the book blurb" for my book and I will have him write any others I need.

            As a copywriter, website editor, content producer, and direct response specialist, I wrote emails, newsletters and landing pages for sites including PayPal and Yahoo!. I also lead an editorial content initiative that drove new-user engagement at Yahoo! Personals. For me and for what I do, a lot of my writing is about solving puzzles. What's the right offer or way to express an offer to get people to accept it -- to click a button on a web page, to open an email, to click a link on an article to read the rest of the article. It's not about being clever with a turn of phrase -- it's about saying the right thing to the right person at the right time to get them engaged.

            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.
