Whenever I visit schools and meet with students, I like to ask them what they think a writer does. They know that a writer writes stories and poems and plays.
But what they, and dare I say many of us, don’t recognize is the breadth of what the writing industry entails. Writers work across a spectrum of specialities and industry. Though they, hopefully, share some of the same skills, the way they go about their writings, the words that flow and create meaning can vary.
I tried to come up with a dozen types of writers. Can you add to this list?
