A writer is someone who writes books, articles, stories, or other written works. Writers are often considered to be artists. A writer’s work can be divided into two categories: fiction and non-fiction.

Fiction writers create stories that may be based on real life events, but are ultimately fictional. Non-fiction writers create works that are based on factual information and real life events.

Both types of writers use their imaginations to create works that entertain, inform, or both. The best writers are able to do this in a way that engages the reader and keeps them coming back for more.
