From Sajun.org

Though anyone who creates a written work may be called a writer, the term is usually reserved for those who write creatively or professionally, or those who have written in many different forms. Skilled writers are adept at using language to portray ideas and images, whether it be in fiction or non-fiction.

A writer may compose in many different forms, including, but not limited to, poetry, prose, music (see: composer), creative writing, technical writing, journalism and academic papers.

The work done by a writer is frequently considered part of the cultural content of a society, and is seen as an art much like the visual arts (see painting, sculpture, photography), music, craft and performance art (see: drama, theatre, opera, musical).

Graffiti artists also refer to themselves as writers, although this may technically be a true description the reference is usually regarded as slang.
