List of English writers is an alphabetical list of writers in English and born or brought up in England, who already have Wikipedia pages. References for information given in the list appear on the Wikipedia pages concerned. The list is far from exhaustive, so please help to expand it by adding Wikipedia page-owning writers who have written extensively in any genre or field, including science and scholarship. Please follow the entry format or say on Talk how you think it can be improved. A seminal work added to a writer's entry should also have a Wikipedia entry behind it. This is a subsidiary list to the List of English people. There are or should be similar lists of Irish, Scots, Welsh, Manx, Jersey, and Guernsey writers. Naturally there is overlap between the lists, as writers may have multiple affiliations (e. g. born in Belfast, brought up in London).
Abbreviations: AV = Authorized King James Version of the Bible, c. = circa, cleric = Anglican priest, fl. = floruit, RC = Roman Catholic, SF = science fiction, YA = young-adult fictionThis literature-related list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.

The bearded man and the lad in his teens,
