Professional Designation Program

Ghostwriting is among the highest-paying, most in-demand career paths for freelance writers, journalists, and editors in today’s editorial service marketplace.

Ghostwriters who command professional-level fees know everything that writers and editors know, but they have also mastered ghostwriting’s unique skill set, while adhering to the profession’s best-practice ethics and protocols. All of this knowledge and ability can be acquired through years of trial and error, or by completing the Ghostwriting Professional Designation Program (GPDP) at CSULB.

GPDP, the only academically sponsored ghostwriter training program in the world, is a comprehensive, intense and career-launching course of study. Graduates, as Certified Ghostwriters, have reported greater confidence, more marketing opportunities, and higher earnings than ever before.
