@FumbleFingers Sorry about that. The source is a bit wordy and I didn't find anything more concise. Also thanks for the input. So it seems that commitment was or is used in a similar way but didn't catch on as much. George Orwell is the kind of writer we're thinking of here.

comment A word or phrase to express “écrivain engagé”, a committed writer?
@Gilles Thank you for lead. I'm looking for the expression as I'd like to form a special interest group on the international level. So the English should be used de facto. I can drop the reference to Victor Hugo if people wish :p .

@RedDwight You're right. That's how languages evolve. I'll rephrase. Is there a word that describes this process?
