List of English writers lists writers in English, born or raised in England (or who lived in England for a lengthy period) , who already have Wikipedia pages . References for the information here appear on the linked Wikipedia pages. The list is incomplete – please help to expand it by adding Wikipedia page-owning writers who have written extensively in any genre or field, including science and scholarship. Please follow the entry format. A seminal work added to a writer's entry should also have a Wikipedia page. This is a subsidiary to the List of English people . There are or should be similar lists of Irish , Scots , Welsh , Manx , Jersey, and Guernsey writers.
