Publishing Research Seminar Series

Taking Place: Buckley BG10/11 in Semester 1 2007

Ghostwriting

OPUS event Thursday 27 September

What skills make a good ghostwriter, and how do publishers and agents manage those skills? To what extent is ghostwriting part of an editorial continuum, in which all editors routinely take part?
