I am the author of Mirages and Flashbacks: Reflections of a Front-Line Gulf War Marine. The book was edited by Joyce Gilmour. The first thing that impressed me about Mrs. Gilmour was her writer-editor/ team-concept method of editing. I would email her sections of the manuscript which she downloaded, printed, edited and express-mailed back to me. She not only made accurate corrections in the text, but added helpful comments, notes and questions in the margins which caused me to think – and led to a bantering of ideas back and forth between us – about how to make some sentences and paragraphs more understandable and concise and make my work a better book as a whole. I would thereafter make the corrections and send her an email responding to the comments and notes and answering her questions, often submitting to her questions of my own. She would usually return my emails within a matter of hours and never more than a day or so later. The second thing – and equally as important – with which I was impressed was her editing abilities. She caught even the most miniscule of grammatical and language-usage errors and assisted me with combining paragraphs and rewriting awkward sentences. She also helped me with big-picture things such as ensuring events were in the right sequence, that disjointed parts were reworked so that they flowed, and that paragraphs and sections would make sense to targeted readers. She did all of this while working within my writing style and without altering any of the themes of the book. I was very pleased with Mrs. Gilmour’s efforts. I highly recommend her as an editor and I intend to retain her for my future books.

You get way more than you pay for when you hire Tiffany. She really knows what she's doing when it comes to writing, researching.

I asked for a realistic poster depicting a scene from a novel I am writing. She nailed it with very little direction. Exactly what I wanted. Suzanne is very talented and easy to work with. I intend to send more work her way in the future.

Could not be more satisfied! Alyssa went above and beyond to help me set up a successful website through VRBO. We had immediate response through her creative description of our fabulous home. I couldn't have done it without her. By the way, thanks to Alyssa, we are now completely booked for this year. She just has a way with words......

    I worked closely with Georgia during the writing and editing stages of my dissertation. She was both a supportive mentor and professional editor. After a successful defense and landing my dream job, I have continued to work with Georgia on book chapters and articles as I move towards tenure. Georgia offers invaluable editing services; she is a great communicator and is responsible to deadlines. She is a problem solver with extensive experience in her field. I highly recommend Matrix Editorial, particularly for advanced graduate students and junior faculty in need of editorial services and project support.

      I’m writing this letter to recommend Sarah Dorfman for your current employment opportunities. When I was the Marketing Manager at The Wharf Marketplace in Monterey, California, I hired Sarah to write for the website, menus, and marketing materials. She is an excellent writer and detailed editor; a combination I was having trouble finding. After working with Sarah on those projects I realized her skills in other areas that I was becoming too busy to handle. She set our social media in motion and was not only successful at growing our likes and followers, but she was great at starting conversations and getting people to interact with our brand. At the time The Wharf Marketplace was a new business and Sarah had a major role in helping us stay on brand, gain loyal customers, earn the respect of fellow business partners. Sarah was very valuable to me, and I’m confident you would have the same results. Sincerely, Carrie Crook Former Marketing Manager for The Wharf Marketplace, Monterey, California. 2013-2015

        I have hired Dale to help me translate online training material into book manuscripts for a client in the financial services sector. He asked the right questions to understand the scope; stayed in communication during the process; and brought the jobs in on time and budget. Thoroughly professional, experienced, and brings a sly midwestern wit that makes working with him a pleasure.

            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.
