If you want to use your wordsmithing talents, we have some creative leads to get your career moving. Here is our hot list for those who want to lend their content to the world of ghostwriting. 

What is ghostwriting?

Ghostwriting is a professional writing practice where a writer, often referred to as a “ghostwriter,” is hired to create content on behalf of someone else. The person hiring the ghostwriter takes credit for the work, and the ghostwriter remains anonymous or may receive acknowledgment in some cases. Ghostwriters are commonly used for various types of content, including books, articles, speeches, blog posts, and more.

There have been many controversies on the subject, but the area has boomed and encompassed many areas in media and beyond. Formerly taboo, it is now a booming industry with incredible earning potential. Beyond writing, ghosting takes on all kinds of creative careers in design, media, narration, and beyond.

Once just for politicians and celebrities to write memoirs and speeches, companies and media personalities depend on ghost staff to ensure their images stay relevant and content constant. If you are okay with missing bylines and can mimic corporate branding and personalities, ghostwriting may be for you. Trusted and experienced ghostwriters command higher rates and royalties with anonymity!
