Job description Basically, a writer is someone who writes for a living, creating fiction (e.g. novels, short stories, scripts for films, theatre and television), non-fiction (e.g. biographies, autobiographies, web content and reference books) or poetry. Some writers are commissioned to write television scripts, whilst others will write articles for magazines and newspapers. Other writers may work as ‘ghostwriters’ (writing on behalf of someone else, under their name). Novelists and writers of non-fiction books tend to spend their time working on one single project, which takes a lot longer to produce. A writer usually needs to do research, writing, editing, fact-checking, adapting and rewriting. More popular writers may even need to attend book signings or give press interviews for publicity purposes. Creative writers produce written copy in the form of books, editorial articles, screenplays and promotional marketing material. Creative writing combines the talents of the writer with the elements of observation and analysis in an artistic portrayal of the human condition. With the mastery of the written word, a writing professional establishes settings, messages, themes and style within a single marketing paragraph or throughout an entire novel.
