on Writing Forward:
Have you ever stopped to think about how many different types of writers there are? Novelists, biographers, bloggers, copywriters, poets, screenwriters, and playwrights — just to name a few.
Within each type of writing we can find areas of specialization. Some biographers write about celebrities; others focus on politicians.
Copywriters can specialize in ad copy or web content. Fiction breaks down into dozens of genres and sub-genres.
When you stop to think about it, the world of writing is quite diverse.
But one thing connects all writers: using language as a tool for creation and communication.
