17 Ghostwriters in India

Ghostwriters in India

Ghostwriters are the secret-keepers of their clients. Sworn to secrecy and leading a life of anonymity, they allow their words to do the talking. In all possibility, we might not even know the real person behind some of our favourite books.

It is not only celebrities who hire them. Today everyone ranging from entrepreneurs, doctors and politics to large MNCs and governments are hiring ghostwriters to write for them. 

Who are Ghostwriters?

"Ghostwriters are hired to write literary or journalistic works, speeches, or other texts that are officially credited to another person as the author. " (Source: Wikipedia)

In simpler terms, ghostwriters are people who will write on behalf of another person.

Their writing varies from an article, a web-copy, a newsletter, a blogpost to a full-fledged book.  

In addition to this,  the ghostwriting services are not limited to English.  One can now hire ghostwriters in Bengali, Hindi, Tamil and a multitude of other Indian languages.

Usually, ghostwriters are not credited with the work they do. Though sometimes, they are lucky to find themselves in the acknowledgements section of a book.

With no work to show as theirs, they usually rely a lot of client referrals and testimonials. They have no claim over the royalties or the awards earned by the client for the work. One can only hope that with the changing tide, the ghostwriters also get their due credit in the industry soon.
