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 task of an American writer is not to describe the misgivings of a woman taken in adultery as she looks out of a window at the rain but to describe four hundred people under the lights reaching for a foul ball. This is ceremony.
    John Cheever (1912–1982)

    The things men come to eat when they are alone are, I suppose, not much stranger than the men themselves.... A writer years ago told me of living for five months on hen mash.
    M.F.K. Fisher (1908–1992)

    Letters have to pass two tests before they can be classed as good: they must express the personality both of the writer and of the recipient.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)
