|Breaking Into Ghostwriting
Many writers have heard about how lucrative ghostwriting can be. The opportunity to earn tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars from a single book project is quite appealing. And demand for ghostwriting skills is on the rise, as experts, executives, consultants, professional speakers, and others realize that partnering with a professional writer is an effective and efficient way to produce content. In addition to books, there are ghostwriting opportunities for bylined articles, blog posts, whitepapers, and columns, too. But how do you break into this potentially lucrative field? How do you get that first assignment? ASJA member Marcia Layton Turner, founder of the Association of Ghostwriters, will explain how.
That’s what we’ll talk about in this month’s “Shop Talk” event.
