  1. Writer

    A writer is a person who uses written words to communicate ideas. Writers produce various forms of literary art and creative writing such as novels, short stories, poetry, plays, news articles, screenplays, or essays. Skilled writers are able to use language to express ideas and their work contributes significantly to the cultural content of a society. The word is also used elsewhere in the arts – such as songwriter – but as a standalone term, "writer" normally refers to the creation of written language. Writers can produce material across a number of genres, fictional or non-fictional. Other writers use multiple media – for example, graphics or illustration – to enhance the communication of their ideas. Some use images or multimedia to augment their writing. In rare instances, a creative writer is able to communicate their ideas via music as well as words. As well as producing their own written works, writers often write on how they write; why they write; and also comment on the work of other writers. Writers work professionally or non-professionally, that is, for payment or without payment and may be paid either in advance, or only after their work is published. Payment is only one of the motivations of writers and many are never paid for their work.

Examples of WRITER in a Sentence

  1. George Orwell:

  2. Jim Bishop:

    A good writer is not necessarily a good book critic. No more so than a good drunk is automatically a good bartender.

  3. Roger Zelazny:

    I don't know that I ever wanted greatness, on its own. It seems rather like wanting to be an engineer, rather than wanting to design something--or wanting to be a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip.

  5. Thomas Ian Nicholas:

    The fifth ‘American Pie’ has been written and as far as I know has been sitting on a shelf in Universal collecting dust for the last five years, … I’m not really where that stands. There’s been a lot of rumors online. Some fans have started Twitter pages called ‘American Vacation,’ pretending that it’s happening. I haven’t heard anything. I was the first one to agree to do ‘American Reunion.’ I remember [writer] Adam Herz, we were talking at a sushi restaurant in 2009. He was like, ‘Hey, what do you think of this idea about doing a reunion? I was like, ‘Count me in… Good luck coordinating everyone’s schedules.’ Sure enough, it took about three years.
