Again my thanks to Stephen for allowing me to share his wonderful glossary of lost words. If you are curious why not go and check it out! http://phrontistery.info/clwdef.html
Today we have many words that mean writer. They are categorized by the genre or type of writing we do.
author. biographer. columnist. correspondent. critic. dramatist. editor. essayist. journalist. novelist. poet. reporter. screenwriter. contributor. freelancer. ghostwriter. scribbler. scribe. stenographer. stringer. wordsmith. newspaper person. person of letters. scripter.
These lost words should stay within the writing realm, don’t you think?
