Staff writer

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

In journalism, a staff writer byline indicates that the author of the article is an employee of the periodical, as opposed to being an independent freelance writer. In Britain, staff writers may work in the office instead of traveling to cover a beat.[1]

In an advertising agency, copywriting is the main responsibility of staff writers.[2]

In television, a staff writer is the probationary, entry-level position in the "writers room"; that is, the team that creates a television series.[3]
