A ghostwriter is a professional writer who is hired to write content on behalf of someone else.
This content can include books, articles, speeches, blog posts, or any written material.
The key distinction is that the ghostwriter's name does not appear on the published work, and they usually receive payment for their writing services but relinquish any claim to authorship or credit for the content.
Ghostwriters are often used by individuals who have ideas or stories to share but lack the time, writing skills, or expertise to write them themselves.
Ghostwriters help bring these ideas to life in a polished and coherent form, allowing the credited author to take the spotlight.
