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.

    The writer who aims at producing the platitudes which are “not for an age, but for all time” has his reward in being unreadable in all ages.... The man who writes about himself and his own time is the only sort of man who writes about all people and about all time.
    George Bernard Shaw (1856–1950)
