Screenwriters write the screenplays on which a variety of media are based. Early screenwriters were focused on films, but as new mediums have emerged the role of the screenwriter now appears in television programs, video games and virtual and mixed reality experiences.

Screenwriters either adapt existing works for production, or create an original screenplay from scratch. Many screenwriters also work as script doctors, attempting to better an existing script to suit the desires of a director, talent, or studio.
