The 5 Types of Writers

Unlike pressure washers from which can either be gas or electric, professional writers can be classified into five. Which one are you?

  1. Academic Writer

This type of writer follows particular writing and layout styles, and they use academic rhetoric in their write ups.

They are best known for being researchers who gather information from journals, textbooks, etc. and make full reports.

Academic writers publish summaries of researches, essays, dissertations, and the like. They are also responsible for editing and proofreading academic dissertations, researches, and assignments.

  1. Technical Writer

They are the writers who describe and explain a particular subject. They aim to simplify complicated technicalities and operations to be understood by an average man.

They usually write how-to guides, service manuals, and product catalogs for software and devices.

However, they go beyond those common tasks. They can work wherever complex concepts, processes, ideas, and procedures need to be explained in an understandable language.

  1. Business Writer

These types of writers are known for writing memoranda, notices, and emails. However, they could write more than those.
