How does hiring a ghostwriter work?

A Ghostwriter receives a fee to produce content for which it usually receives no credit. The Author under whose name the work is published hires a ghostwriter to produce original content following the author's idea and direction.


No matter what type of writing service the ghostwriter provides, whether Blogging and  Article Writing services, to Novels, Screenplays, and Music, an agreement should be in place before work starts.  

There should be clear expectations for the end product and the relationship between the ghostwriter and the author should include


  • copyright,

  • confidentiality,

  • schedule of payments,

  • revisions, and

  • deadlines.

  • Also, add termination of agreement when either party wants to pull out.  


A professional amanuensis, better known as a ghostwriter, or "writer for hire," will follow the instructions a client provides plus the genre-specific guidelines of a professional writer. There could be some murky areas that need to be clarified before work begins.
