About Ghostwriter

August 17th, 2017

A ghostwriter is a freelance writer who writes anonymously and allows their hiring agent to publish it without attribution. Ghostwriters are responsible for writing works based on a specific timeline and on a specific subject, and do not get credit for the work. Ghostwriters are often writers who want to express very controversial feelings, or oftentimes do not want their name affiliated with a certain company or organization. They are responsible for quick, clear, and concise writing on deadline.
