Ghostwriting is a practice chosen by celebrities or high profile personalities, particularly for autobiographies or other written material.

Our journalistic approach ensures subjects feel relaxed and yet able to transfer their thoughts, life story or opinion into a written format that will prove entertaining for the reader.

The input of a ghostwriter or ‘ghost’ depends on the confidence of the subject matter – particularly when it comes to autobiographies.

Some individuals prefer to write all the work themselves, turning to the ‘ghost’ to clean up their copy.

Using a ghost is a terrific of teasing out memories and antidotes that may have been long since forgotten, providing a format for the book to follow.

Others may use a ghost for research, hiring them to put flesh on the bones of an other forgotten incident.

Generally a ghost will conduct a series of interviews with the subject matter over a period of time, transforming those interviews into written text.


Blogs are becoming increasingly popular with large businesses or organisations.

Personalties are regularly asked to front campaigns or appear ‘in association with’ a particular product or brand.

The whole point of a celebrity backed blog is to raise awareness for the business and so the content is key.

It may be that the personality is not capable or doesn’t have the time to produce the required copy.

Onside can produce content on their behalf written in their style for blogs or websites.


Ghosts are normally paid a flat fee, a percentage of the royalties of the sales, per page or a combination of the three.
