Hi, I'm Laura from and I'm going to talk about a definition of a ghost writer. A ghost writer is a writer who's been hired by the main writer to help support in the project. It might be someone who just does some sections of a book or a project. Or it could be someone who completely takes over the project and the other person assumes responsibility for that work. Generally people who accept ghost writing positions are people who do a lot of work for hire and are not interested in being a writer with recognized title credit. But it's a writer who does the work of another person and usually without any credit given. That's a definition of a ghost writer.
