A writer is a person who uses written words in various styles and techniques to communicate ideas. Writers produce various forms of literary art and creative writing, such as novels , short stories , poetry , plays , newspaper articles, scripts, essays, and chronicles. Skilled writers can use language to express ideas, and their work contributes significantly to the cultural content of a society. This term is also used in music, as an equivalent to composer ; however, the term "writer" usually refers to or is associated with the creation of written language.
Writers can produce material across a number of genres, fiction or non-fiction. Other writers use multiple media — for example, graphics or illustrations — to improve the communication of their ideas. [ 1 ] Some writers may use images ( drawing , painting , graphics) or multimedia to enhance your writing. In addition to producing their own written works, writers also often write about: how they write (that is, the process they use to write); why they write (that is, their motivation); and also comments on the work of other writers (criticism). Writers can work in a professional or non-professional manner.
The term writer is often used synonymously with the author, although the latter term has a somewhat broader meaning and is used to convey legal responsibility for a piece of writing, even if its composition is anonymous, unknown, or collaborative. In a strict sense, the term designates the professionals of the literature.
According to the genre and type of compositions to which a writer is dedicated in the strict sense, he will receive other more specific names: poet (who writes poetry), novelist (author of novels), essayist (author of essays), critic (who for example writes literary or journalistic criticism ), screenwriter (scriptwriter), playwright (author of plays), etc.
