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:

    Men like women who write. Even though they don’t say so. A writer is a foreign country.
    Marguerite Duras (b. 1914)

    The qualities of a second-rate writer can easily be defined, but a first-rate writer can only be experienced. It is just the thing in him which escapes analysis that makes him first-rate.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)

    The writer probably knows what he meant when he wrote a book, but he should immediately forget what he meant when he’s written it.
    William Golding (b. 1911)
