The 16-year-old star made the admission in an interview with Clash magazine, saying although writing for other artists would be "a challenge" it's something she "can't wait" to do.
Lorde dished: "I haven't written for other artists yet but I definitely want to."
She continued: "Obviously lyrics are a huge part of my music, and they're so personal to me, so... it'll be such a challenge to step out of my body. I can't wait."
Discussing which acts she'd be keen to write for, the young star said: "Rihanna would be fun to write for because she's done EVERYTHING. And I'd love to write for - or with - Ellie Goulding, actually."
Lorde went from indie sensation to bona fide chart-topper recently with her debut single Royals now spending its third consecutive week at no. 1 on the US Billboard chart.
The New Zealand singer - whose real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor - also said she'd like to work with super-producer Dr. Luke, the man behind some of Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Jessie J's biggest hits.
Referring to the songwriting offers that have come flooding in since she shot to fame, Lorde revealed: "I've heard from lots of people - almost too many to mention. But Dr Luke was particularly impressive. It's like, 'You're Dr Luke. You're like Rambo'. He's pop royalty."
She added: "He's cool. I find what he does so fascinating."
Lorde will officially release Royals here in the UK on October 20.
