Ghostwriting: The Art & Science of Being Someone Else’s Voice

What's involved with writing for someone else? This class will explore what it takes to be a ghostwriter or collaborative writer (and what the difference is). We'll talk about the business aspects of writing another person's book: how to find the work, negotiate fair agreements, and navigate the challenges. We'll also talk about the craft of writing in another person's voice, and the instructor's tips for how to recognize and draw out the key parts of someone else’s story.
