I want to confirm or consider suitable choices for describing some one who writes artistically. The trouble is I'm having trouble finding a word with the right scope:
- Lyricist - This was my first choice, but after thinking on it, I suppose this word would exclude broader forms of artistic writing like, poetry.
- Poet - The converse of the preceding problem.
- Versist - doesn't seem to be a word?
- writer - Alas, the vanilla "writer" is too broad and includes prose
Was simply hoping to find a "-ist"-type of word to refer to the entire universe of artistic writing, are there any likely suitors?
