Fiction writing is the composition of non-factual prose texts. Fictional writing often is produced as a story meant to entertain or convey an author’s point of view.

The result of this may be a short story, novel, novella, screenplay, or drama, which are all types (though not the only types) of fictional writing styles.

Different types of authors practice fictional writing, including novelists, playwrights, short story writers, dramatists and screenwriters.
