Overview

Minimum Hourly Rate $45

Simply the best in grant writing, copywriting, editing, and academics. Vibrant imagination and meticulous attention to detail and are the keys to writing that shines. I have both, and I look forward to putting them to work for you!

I'm Kimberly, a full-time freelance writer/editor from sunny San Diego, California.

As an expert grant proposal writer I've raised $4 million from foundations, corporations and governments since 2003 with an average award that tops $75,000.

I'm happy to be an Elance provider. As a full-time freelance writer and editor since 2008, I have an appetite for variety and I choose not to limit myself to one genre. I take on diverse projects and fulfill them to my clients' total satisfaction -- check out my five-star ratings and see for yourself.
