    I am a professionally-published author with pieces in anthologies, magazines, and online publications. I have 20+ years of experience in writing, editing, and proof-reading. I enjoy collaboration and have been able to mentor and work with several young writers over the years. Though a great deal of my experience has been with creative writing, I also have experience with SEO, native-eye English editing for online content, pitches, blogging, copy-writing, instructive articles, and articles for my local newspaper. I've also worked with formatting, layout, and graphic design. I place a high priority on delivering well-written, professionally-edited work, on time. As my schedule is flexible, I can usually offer a very fast turn-around time once contracted. Words are my passion, and I love to work closely with writers in order to make their project the best that it can possibly be. As an editor, I can offer everything from basic grammar and spelling edits, through all levels to deep edits for development, tone, style, and arc. I also have more than fifteen years of experience in office settings, including a lawyer's office and in the medical field. I'm trained in all kinds of front office work, including filing, scheduling, billing, scanning, and transcription.

    Having served as a professional editor and writer for more than ten years now, working with both fiction and nonfiction, my passion revolves around helping authors and publishers find the full potential of their manuscripts. I have an excellent eye for detail, and with my extended background as a writer and teacher, I can be depended upon to offer professional guidance at every turn, eliminate errors and inconsistencies, and meet all deadlines. By turns, I work as a writing coach, editor, and ghostwriter, matching my talents to my clients' needs. In each of these roles, I only take on projects that suit my skills--so, if you ask me to edit or write in a genre where I have no experience, I'll be the first to tell you I'm not your ideal fit. But, when I do take on a project, you can be sure that it will become a top priority and receive the attention and skill it deserves. I work with both indie authors and publishers, and about 90% of my workload comes in the form of novels, whether that means I'm offering ghostwriting, developmental editing, line editing, copy-editing, or combined line/copy-edits. I also do work on blurbs, synopses, and queries, but only for works that I've edited. When it comes to nonfiction, I'm got a varied background that crosses a variety of disciplines and types of writing. I've edited and copy-edited a number of dissertations and academic articles within the humanities and sciences, and I've developed a close familiarity with details of grammar and citation styles (as I've worked as both a freelance copy-editor and as the assistant director of a university-level writing center). Additionally, I've served as the editor of a major university's literary journal for four years, copy-editing creative writing and narrative nonfiction; it was this position that led me into working on what the majority of my time goes to now, which is full-length novels. My work as an editor for a university led naturally into my working as a developmental and content editor--a position I fell naturally into because of my experience and my passion for literature & teaching. Regarding editing: I've been freelancing on a full-time basis since August of 2014, and I've specialized in editing narrative nonfiction, memoir, and novellas & novels of various genres (including but not limited to: science fiction, fantasy, suspense, mystery, romance, paranormal romance, literary fiction, and horror). I have experience with MG, YA, and adult material, and I love keeping an eclectic calendar so that I always have a fresh eye for each new manuscript. In terms of writing, I hire out as a fixer just as often as a writer--this means that I work through a complete novel, elevating the writing and 'fixing' issues that come up in relation to the story, character, pacing, genre, etc. Essentially, hiring me as a 'fixer' means that you've got a complete draft, and it's in decent shape, but you know it needs work and want it to reach the next level without your being directly involved in the revision. When it comes to nonfiction, I take on very few fixing and ghostwriting positions, and generally only consider projects where an author has already developed a fair amount of content that I can work from in terms of content, voice, and style. My work in ghostwriting fiction has been focused around paranormals, suspense, romance, horror, SFF, and nonfiction, and I only hire out as a ghostwriter for adult work (vs MG and YA). As a published writer and a freelancer, I've accumulated numerous experiences which translate to my being a more well-rounded editor and writer. I have a particular interest in speculative, literary, and scientific writings, as well as in all manuscripts related to socio-political concerns, and I read widely in both fiction and nonfiction, which allows me a real familiarity with various types of texts and professional expectations from separate academic and professional communities. I have eclectic interests and passions, so I'm working to build a varied portfolio and form lasting working relationships with individuals and companies in need of strong editors and writers. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you think I might be a good fit for your project, and know I'm glad to answer any questions along the way.

    I have been working as a freelancer for more than 20 years. As a writer I am intuitive at translating your thoughts and ideas into solid prose; you give me the key concepts, I'll give you articulate and persuasive content that expresses exactly what you mean. I have a loyal roster of clients who come to me again and again for this type of help. As a ghostwriter, I've received praise for being professional, easy to work with, and for consistently delivering high-quality content. I am highly organized and am willing to tackle complicated projects. My special talent is working with authors, either collaborating to create original content or editing and adapting existing content for a new audience. I have significant experience working with novelists and screenwriters. It has been my pleasure to work with hundreds of clients from all walks of life during the past two decades. I've assisted ministers and marketed tribute bands, administrated a non-profit, and kept family law attorneys organized. I've crafted marketing material for a microscope salesman and authored an installation manual for floating harbor barriers. I'm an ace at business correspondence and I love to craft "book blurbs"!

    Hello there. I'm Myra. I have always loved to write and I am hoping to put my skills and passion to the test while meeting the needs of my clients. Before venturing into freelancing, I ran social media for a company I was working for. Part of my job description included blog writing, creating content for the various websites, writing case studies and annual reports for the company. I am also an experienced business writer with a solid track record of work in tech-related companies and online marketing. Now I focus on meeting the freelance needs of small businesses, startups, and individual brands who want to build their online presence and gain traction. I specialize in web content writing that gets you imprinted in the minds of your target audience. Let me help you tell your story in a way that does more than entertain. Regards, Myra M.

    Hey there! I'm Betty and my love for writing is far beyond what I thought it would be. Let me tell you a little bit about what I do... I love creative writing. For a certain, this is where my passion lies. I love it because this is where I can create stories with my imagination. I am well versed in writing erotic articles, erotic short stories, and romance stories with different tropes and themes. This ranges from contemporary, sweet, sensual, paranormal and romantic suspense. This is where my creativity sparks with excitement especially when writing the following tropes; -Billionare. -Secret Romance. - Friends to Lovers. -Enemies to lovers. -Happily ever after. -Werewolves. -Office Romance. -Reverse Harem, -Protector I have a way to capture my readers with my stories. With characters and a plot that the audience can relate to because as a reader I know that a good story has to grip the readers from the word go. My imagination is vast, there is no doubt about that. When I start a new story I just take my notebook and write till I develop a great story line and characters that you'll feel compelled to relate with. Apart from creative writing, I can manage a blog, write articles as well, which is my second love. I have a blog myself which helps me pour my views. I have had jobs on many freelancing websites, and I have had friends sending me ghostwriting jobs because of my imaginative filled ideas. I assure you that I can deliver on time with excellent results. I have a remarkable turnaround and I can guarantee that my work for you will be meticulous and well delivered. I can't wait to work for you. Have a good one.

    CREATIVE WRITING When a story is losing my interest, I always ask myself why. When it’s grabbing my interest by the throat with both hands and shaking until I can barely separate my world from that of the story, I ask myself the same: why? The question did not begin as a professional one, just as for me, writing did not begin as a career. I started out in the fantasy genre under the assumption that make-believe worlds are bound to be the most tantalizing. In search of the elixir of storytelling I devoured Tolkien, Rothfuss, Paolini, Sanderson, C.S. Lewis, Robert Jordan, George R.R. Martin, and the rest of their ilk. I was mesmerized but not satisfied, as I’m sure no good writer ever fully is. So I knocked down the boundaries of my literature and began plumbing new horizons. The quintessential twentieth-century masters slipped one by one beneath my belt: Kurt Vonnegut, Cormac McCarthy, John Steinbeck and George Orwell, along with a few more antiquated: Jane Austen, Emily & Charlotte Bronte. The lot of them were joined with bonhomie by several more recent luminaries, including Khaled Hosseini, who guided me more than anyone else not to the treasure at the end of my quest, but to the nature of my quest itself: I was in search of a good story. And I had been errant to believe it needed orcs or elves to make it engrossing. All you need between a book’s two covers is a human story. As for the rest, take it or leave it. Orcs or elves, spaceships or artificial intelligence, the Taliban or an atomic bomb—write what you please, but the only thing that will move anyone is a story about the human heart. This is what I aim to do with my writing: transport one soul into another soul and let them muddle one another with their fingerprints. Touch each other, truth to truth. That’s what books are. Tiny surgical incisions into the beating heart of another human being. I can write, edit and proofread the following: Novels (fiction & non-fiction) Personal development & self-help Spiritual & philosophical literature Memoirs & biographies Essays, articles & speeches LIFE & WELLNESS COACHING My studies into human psychology and patterns of healthy thinking also provide the launchpad for my work in life coaching, personal health, and emotional wellness. Traveling in Europe, North America, the Middle East and Africa has stimulated a rich and well-rounded insight into the wellbeing of people around the globe, letting me develop deeper reflections on the human experience and the psychological problems we face as people. As a personal health consultant, I focus my efforts on helping people break their lives down into pieces they're capable of analyzing. I coach them through the process of identifying their subconscious motives and voluntarily facing the obstacles that stand in the way of their search for meaning, career purpose, and relational success. I also address key external factors like exercise, diet, sleep, and alone time, and am more than happy to design personalized workout plans and help identify where a client's daily routine needs some improvement. I can provide direct coaching sessions, writing, or consultation in any of the following fields: - Personal development & self-help - Spirituality, philosophy & psychology - Life & career coaching - Meditation - Fitness Feel free to contact me if you want to talk over a project or flip through samples of my work! I am always genuine when evaluating a potential collaboration; I’ll tell you if I don’t think I’m a good fit for your project and always invite you to do likewise. I hope to hear from you! Blessings, Savannah Tate

    I have over 30 years' experience in the publishing/writing industry, working as everything from an in-house editor to an investigative reporter to a novelist to a medical/technical writer to a screenwriter. I've been an independent contractor for 24 years working as a freelance editor (developmental and line editing), writer (fiction and nonfiction), ghostwriter, and copy editor. I'm able to see the big picture in a piece of writing as well as being diligent about the details. As a novelist, I appreciate the music of language and the importance of tone and character. As a writer of technical material, I recognize the importance of clarity and precision in the writing. I keep clients apprised of progress and am always available for communication. I believe my years of experience in various kinds of writing as well as in research, editing, copy editing, and ghostwriting create a package of competence and expertise.

    Based in France, I live in an isolated Mediaeval village. I am a versatile writer, blogger, and content provider. I have written many novels and novellas for a wide range of clients. Subjects have varied from dystopian fiction to historical romance and have included murder mysteries and science fiction series along the way. In addition, I have written two biographies. I come from a horticultural background but have served in the armed forces and worked for several years as a commercial diver. I have also travelled extensively in more than forty countries. This varied life has provided me with plenty of experience to draw on for my writing, and I don't regret a moment of it.

    As a full-time freelance writer specializing in romance novels, nonfiction e-books, blogs, articles, product descriptions, and web content, I continuously seek long-term opportunities with great potential for growth in which I can utilize my skills and talents. I have extensive experience in ghostwriting romance novels in the contemporary and science fiction genres, each book ranging from 10,000 to 60,000 words. To date, I have completed more than 50 romance novels which my clients find impressive, engaging, and well-written with hardly any need for editing. Furthermore, I have written hundreds of articles on various topics for online purposes and have greatly contributed to the blogging and social media marketing needs of several clients. I graduated with honors from a top university in the Philippines and have had four English textbooks published by the University Press of First Asia (formerly DIWA Publishing). I have also conducted writing workshops and training seminars on oral and written communication for students, teachers, and company staff. Aside from my background in the education industry, I am well-versed with online marketing because of the many related articles I have done about it in the past and also because it is one of my interests. I am also trained in sales and marketing, business, leadership, project management, and personal development because I worked as a financial adviser and insurance agent for 2 years and have been an entrepreneur and personal development coach for 11 years now. During my free time, I love to read romance novels and personal development books, relax over coffee with my close friends, and dabble in creative ventures such as graphic design and video editing. As a hardworking and dedicated individual with 101% passion for writing, you can count on me to deliver your writing needs with zeal and excellence. I'm a fast learner, a detail-oriented person who can follow instructions to the letter, and a creative spirit who likes trying new things and exploring the online world.

    I have been a freelance writer and secondary research specialist for over six years. I have written on many different topics, both for SEO and non-SEO purposes. My research work includes finding contact information, triangulating market size and growth, identifying obscure data points, and more. I have a bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in Education, both of which ensure your articles and research are error-free and high-quality. Some of the topics I have written on include: home security, Obamacare, healthcare, moving, limousines, home improvement, financial topics (401k, IRA, Roth, investments, Forex, etc,), education, software, surveys, online quizzes, home decor, tutoring, automobiles, sports, and more. I am currently seeking new clients for long-term or short-term projects. Deadlines are important to me because if you succeed, I succeed, so every milestone you set will be met, usually with time to spare. In addition, for writing, I provide free revisions until you are satisfied with the content. We are partners and I take my side of the partnership very seriously. Although I have set a minimum hourly wage at $25 per hour, this is negotiable. I usually do not work on a per-hour basis for writing, preferring instead to work on a per-project basis.

    By day, I write creative copy for marketing campaigns at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. For over 10 years, I was a digital marketer. After honing in on my passion, I realized creative writing is what I want to do for the rest of my life. So, by night, I am a fiction novelist. My chosen genre is romance, but I like to weave in other genres. I have written for magazines, blogs, contests, and more. When you hire me, you can expect that I will treat your project with just as much importance and respect as if it were my own.

    Time management, commitment, and honesty are some of the core values I hold dear. As a freelancer, I believe they are the necessary qualities that make me invaluable. I love reading, watching sitcoms (TBBT was genius!), and learning new skills. Whatever topic I'm not familiar with, being a quick learner, I can read up on it to familiarize myself with the subject and deliver creative, timely, and original content. I can help you grow that blog or quickly give life to your ideas with creatively written content.

    Hi! Welcome to my profile. Since you need a writer, allow me to introduce myself. I have written over twenty novels in various genres and am always looking for a new challenge. Although I am more comfortable with fiction, I have also worked as a copywriter. If you need it written, I'm the person for the job! I'm an effective ghostwriter and have signed several non-disclosure agreements. I work discreetly and pride myself on being able to capture a client's desired tone. I have worked on a number of different genres ranging from murder mystery to young adult dystopia. I also have editing experience and can correct errors in a manuscript without changing the flow of the story. In my experience, the key to a successful novel is a detailed plot outline. If you need someone to guide you through this stage of writing a novel or want someone to give helpful tips on how to enhance your story, feel free to pop me a message! During my time as a writer, I've also been asked to be a beta reader. Other writers have also asked me to help write blurbs for their books and provide reviews. I've always enjoyed reading, so this type of work appeals to me. The authors were generally pleased with my feedback since it was fair and respectful. I always try to preserve the essence of the story while I'm providing notes, and my main priority is to preserve the author's unique voice. My writing is always well researched and delivered on time. The overall tone of my work is upbeat and engaging although I have worked on several serious projects. I have worked with a number of clients and always received positive feedback. I keep things professional and believe in hard work and efficiency. I pride myself on having a good work ethic. My interests include learning more about the world around me, and I engage in part-time volunteer work that brings me into contact with many interesting people. I look forward to hearing from you!

    As a passionate writer, I'm eager to get to grips with any subject. I love writing, and I enjoy the necessary research that goes into the work. I consider myself lucky to have a job that I feel truly passionate about. I'm a good researcher, and I always put 100% into any piece I write, regardless of length or subject. I run a blog, both for my own entertainment and as a portfolio, where I write about literature, post book reviews, and discuss mental health issues. I've been writing and working on my craft for years, and I particularly enjoy writing about different topics. I specialize in ghostwriting and copywriting, and I hugely enjoy both types of work. I look forward to new challenges.

What is a ghostwriter?

A ghostwriter can help position you as a voice of authority and a thought leader in your target industry. Ghostwriters create content that you can claim as your own. Depending on the contract, this typically means a full transfer of copyright ownership to the person or organization commissioning the piece. Whether you want to hire a ghostwriter to write your book or one to take over all your website’s blog writing, you’ll first want to know how to hire a ghostwriter on Upwork. 

How do you hire a ghostwriter?

You can source a ghostwriter talent on Upwork by following these three steps:

  • Write a project description. You’ll want to determine your scope of work and the skills and requirements you are looking for in a ghostwriter.

  • Shortlist and interview ghostwriters. Once the proposals start coming in, create a shortlist of the professionals you want to interview. 

Of these three steps, writing your project description is the most important. It’s where you will determine your scope of work, the specific type of ghostwriter you need for your project, and your budget.

How much does it cost to hire a ghostwriter?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.
