Yazar (Writer) Mesleğinin İngilizce Tanıtımı
What is an Author?
Are you naturally inclined to think creatively? Do you love words and language? Becoming an author may be an obvious career path for you!
Authors produce well-crafted pieces of work for us to read and enjoy. An author will work closely with words and use the fundamentals of language to evoke our imagination, educate us, and hold our interest.
There are many different types of authors; novelists, poets, journalists, screenwriters, playwrights, copywriters, and so on. There are also many genres of writing; academic, creative, business, professional, and journalistic.
For as many different types of books and published writings there are in the world, there are as many different types of authors that write them.
What do they do?
Anybody at all who writes is a writer. A writer can write stories, poems, news or magazine articles, scripts for TV shows, books, comics, radio programs, plays, musicals, and screenplays. A writer can also write things that you might not think about as being authored, like textbooks, advertisements, and content for websites! (Even the answer you’re reading right now is being written by a writer!)
Getting a job as a writer is very competitive and usually requires talent, perseverance, and dedication. Some people who work as writers are journalists employed by newspapers, websites, or TV networks. Others write books like novels, short stories, biographies, or memoirs. These writers are sometimes commissioned (paid ahead of time to produce a specific writing project), but also sometimes have to write their book first and then try to sell it to a publishing company later. Some writers also work as freelance writers, meaning they might write a variety of projects for different clients, such as a weekly column for a magazine or a one-time assignment writing the description of a new product. Many writers also do their writing on their own time and have a separate or related job that lets them support themselves while they build up their writing career!
Most people with writing careers usually have college degrees, often in subjects like English or journalism. Many people develop their professional lives as writers over time and must be patient and persistent. Writers also have to read a lot and, write a lot, and love to do it! Lots of writers cite similar reasons why they love writing: Telling stories, being creative, expressing ideas, escaping to new worlds, spreading knowledge, sharing with others, and more!
Authors compose works of literature including poetry, scripts, articles, novels and works of non-fiction. Some authors prefer to research and carefully map out a story line, whereas others prefer to dive straight into writing with little preparation. Once an author is happy with their written work it is submitted to a publisher where it may be edited and changed for publication. Authors work with editors and publishers to ensure that their creative vision remains intact.
Knowledge, skills and attributes:
An author needs:
- the ability to write creatively and clearly
- concentration, imagination and dedication
- to be able to handle criticism
- time management skills and the ability to work to deadlines
- word processing skills.
Authors can work in a vast array of environments, however quite often they work in offices, libraries or from their home. They work independently for long periods of time, although sometimes they collaborate with other authors or editors. After publication they may work with visual or performance artists.
Authors are also required to participate in some travel, both locally and overseas, for research, to give readings and to publicise their works.
Tools and technologies:
Authors spend a majority of their time working on a computer with word processing software. They may also use the computer to access the Internet for research. Similarly, they may also use textbooks for research. Some authors prefer to record their ideas or research on a hand held dictaphone.
