About Us

Writers for Hire was founded in 2005 after owner John Halas left his job as an 8th-grade writing teacher in Brooklyn, NY public schools to pursue his true passions of business and writing.

Since then, the Writers for Hire team has completed 1000s of wide-ranging writing and editing projects. Most our clients contact us for their creative writing needs such as screenwriting, novel writing, stand-up comedy writing, and song lyrics writing. We also have a team of non-fiction writers who focus on academic projects, how-to books, memoirs, and web content writing.

Unlike other writing companies that attempt to have writers work outside their area of expertise, our writers for hire focus on their strong suit. For instance, for our creative writers, the novelists focus on writing novels and our screenwriters focus on screenwriting. Even more so, the writers then specialize in a particular genre and type such as science fiction, comedy, drama, fantasy, action, romance, romantic comedy, biography, etc. Our non-fiction team members also stick to the topics and types of writing in which they’re experts. 

We have a highly efficient workflow in place too. Our writers for hire will work in logical stages and milestones. You will be able to see the progress of your project and let us know your feedback before we proceed to the next stage. You will have direct contact with your project manager. You can communicate with Writers for Hire through email, phone and text messenger, and you can even share voice memos to share your information.

Our team can work as traditional writers for hire or ghostwriters. We’re happy to sign and send you a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). You’ll retain the rights to your work and we will maintain its confidentiality.
