A writer is a person who uses words to communicate ideas. The writing that writers produce may be in any genre, fictional or non-fictional. Writers work professionally or non-professionally, that is, for payment or without payment: the nature of the work means that often a writer works without pay until the writing has been published. Literary art such as novels, short stories, poetry, plays, screenplays, or essays are among the results of a writer’s work.
