Writers will choose themes or subjects for written work, conduct research into the subject, assemble background material and obtain other necessary data, plan and organise material and write the work. They will revise or edit the work, making sure that the style is consistent; that there is proper development of theme, plot and characterisation; and that referencing is correct. They will be in charge to set out the original manuscript so that it is clear and legible (typed or word processed, for example) and submit the work to a publisher and also work with other specialists such as scriptwriters, software developers, graphic designers and illustrators, to create multimedia works.
