Writer

A writer is a person who produces nonfictional writing or literary art such as novels, short stories, poetry, plays, screenplays, or essays—especially someone who writes professionally.

Skilled writers are able to use language to express ideas and images. A writer's work may contribute significantly to the cultural content of a society.

The term writer is customarily used as a synonym of author, although the latter term has a somewhat broader meaning.

Famous quotes containing the word writer:

    The writer operates at a peculiar crossroads where time and place and eternity somehow meet. His problem is to find that location.
    Flannery O’Connor (1925–1964)

    Writing, at its best, is a lonely life. Organizations for writers palliate the writer’s loneliness, but I doubt if they improve his writing. He grows in public stature as he sheds his loneliness and often his work deteriorates. For he does his work alone and if he is a good enough writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)

    A writer is unfair to himself when he is unable to be hard on himself.
    Marianne Moore (1887–1972)
