On the Creative Side

If you’re looking for a writing partner with a creative spark… a bit of whimsy… an unconventional outlook… you’ve come to the right place. We’ll help you with any original composition, be it fiction or nonfiction.

We consider “creative writing” anything with the purpose of expressing thoughts and emotions rather than just conveying information. Our creative portfolio includes a whole slew of products across many genres, including:

  • Comic books
  • Short stories
  • Memoirs
  • Children’s books
  • Video games
  • Commercial scripts

We apply our creativity to your story to ensure that your story gets told – in your voice, with your goals.

Let the Creative Juices Flow

What makes us strong creative writers? We understand that the creative process requires, of all things, creativity. We can help you tap into yours. Whether you have the keen desire to set pen to paper and create literature of your own or want a beautiful story told from your point of view, we have the expertise to help you.

We’re not against taking advice from some of the greats – and we’ll help you apply their pearls of wisdom to enhance your creative project. The traditionalists among us appreciate the timeless advice of Strunk & White’s The Elements of Style

  • Make the paragraph the unit of composition.
  • Use the active voice.
  • Use definite, specific, concrete language.
  • Omit needless words.
  • In summaries, keep to one tense.

Then there are the musings of George Orwell in Politics and the English Language:

  • Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print.
  • Never use a long word where a short one will do.
  • Never use the passive where you can use the active.
  • Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.
  • Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous.

And for you pop-culturalists, consider some pointers from contemporary screenwriter Joss Whedon (most recently of The Avengers fame):

  • Every – every – story is a story about people. Or else it sucks.
  • Everybody matters. Understand all your characters.
  • Believe in your concept. Everything has already been done – but not by you.
  • Enjoy your craft. Throw everything you’ve got into your writing.
  • Embrace your weirdness. What makes you unique is your greatest asset.

A Team Working for You

Our diverse team includes writers, editors, and project managers with unique skillsets and varied backgrounds. Our team approach means if a new deliverable falls outside your core team’s area of expertise, we can draw on other team writers with specialties that best align with your creative writing project.

Depending on the size and scope of your project, we have the talent to provide you a breadth of services:

  • Strategic planning. We work with you to refine your goals, whether you’re writing a personal narrative or company project.
  • Project management. We manage all the deliverables and make sure your project keeps moving forward.
  • Writing. We expertly craft your pieces in your own language.
  • Editing and Reviewing. We rework existing copy to ensure exceptional final copy.
  • Visual design. We establish graphics, as needed, to boost your creative process.

References Available

Sure, we think our writing team is pretty great – but we’re just a bit biased. If you’d like to learn more about what it’s like to work with us, from our real ghostwriting customers, we can provide references upon request.

Our Process


  • Q: Who has the rights to my book?

    A: You do. It’s your book, and you retain 100% of the rights to it.

  • Q: Who gets credit for writing my book?

    A: You do. In addition to retaining 100% of the rights to your book, you can claim sole authorship. Some of our clients choose to credit us as editors or co-writers. Although it’s nice to get a shout-out now and then, the majority of our clients don’t disclose the fact that they used a ghostwriter – and that’s fine with us.

  • Q: Is ghostwriting ethical?

    A: Of course. Your ghostwriter is simply helping you say what you want to say in a clear, engaging way. The ideas are 100% yours – all a ghostwriter does is help you get it on the page.

  • Q: I don’t want anyone to know I used a ghostwriter. How do I ensure privacy?

    A: We take your privacy seriously. Most of our ghostwriting contracts include a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).

  • Q: I’m short on funding. Can I pay you a portion of proceeds, after publication?

    A: Our ghostwriters are professional, full-time writers and editors – and in order to keep them on our team, we have to pay them for their time. Our business model simply isn’t set up to take projects on spec.

  • Q: Can you publish my book?

    A: We can publish your book through CreateSpace, an Amazon subsidiary. If you are interested in other publishing options, we can recommend and provide introductions to several traditional and self-publishing companies.

  • Q: I live in Seattle. Your company is based in Houston. How can you write my book?

    A: Technology makes it easy for us to work with anyone, anywhere. Plus, we love to fly and will to travel to you if you prefer. After the initial kickoff meeting, most of our ghostwriting clients communicate with us via email, phone, or Skype. We’ve worked with hundreds of happy clients from all over the globe – from Singapore to San Jose to Scottsdale.

  • Q: What if I don’t like your edits or writing?

    A: Ghostwriting is a back-and-forth process, and we seek specific, constructive feedback from you every step of the way. Once we get a feel for your style preferences, we write a few pages and send them to you for review. You tell us what’s working – and what’s not working – and we send you a revised copy. You see every chapter as we go, which means there won’t be any surprises at the end.

  • Q: Can you design my book’s cover or create custom illustrations or infographics?

    A: We don’t offer illustrations and infographics in-house, but we can provide introductions and recommendations for design work, and we can project manage the design portion of your book.

  • Q: Can you guarantee that my book will get published?

    A: If you are referring to self-publishing, which is now almost 20% of the current market, then yes. If you are referring to traditional publishing, no one can guarantee publication. We can, however, provide you with introductions to a few local/niche publishers; we can help guide you through the self-publishing process; and we can pitch your book to traditional publishers.

We have the experience you need.

Other writing firms have good teams – but we have a great team. Our highly credentialed and experienced writers are degreed, full-time professionals, several of whom hold Ph.D.’s and master’s degrees in their fields. They bring a variety of backgrounds and, perhaps more importantly, understand how the business world works.

We get to know you

Developing and maintaining long-term client relationships is important to us. We take the time to get to know your company so we can develop messaging that both fits your company personality and presents real value to your end customer.

We are part of your team.

We believe in treating your project as our own. We’re not just writing your copy; we’re helping you deliver on your promise – to your boss, to yourself, to your stakeholders. That means we become proactive members of your company and seamless extensions of your internal team. Sure, we’ll take directions when you know exactly what you want. But we’ll also make suggestions when you need guidance to make every project a success.

We are efficient.

Time is valuable. The Writers For Hire won’t waste yours. We recognize that you don’t have enough hours in the day to train writers and editorial project managers – on the other hand, you can’t afford to make mistakes on such an important element of your business operations. We use a proprietary process to quickly synch with your team, and award-winning software to efficiently manage campaigns with hundreds of deliverables.

We’ve got your back.

Say your lead writer is out of the office, and you need a quick turnaround on a new deliverable. You have back-up who knows the particulars of your account and can move your projects ahead seamlessly. So go ahead and call us at any given time – we’ll make it happen for you.

We are exceptionally customer-focused.

Our dedication to customer service is obvious: You’ll never worry about being able to reach us. You’ll have a dedicated team assigned to you, and you can rest assured that your team will be highly responsive.

But don’t just take our word for it. Our client list speaks for itself.
