The role of interpersonal skills cannot be neglected in the work of writers. A number of people assume that writing is a lonely affair and one doesn't need to work with other people but in solitude if they want to pursue writing. That is really not true. The writers have to work in teams and have to coordinate with a number of people. Also they need to meet large number of people throughout their careers. The below points will help you understand the role of interpersonal skills for the writers:

1. The writers need to gather data and information as a lot of research is required for the writing purposes. For that they need to interview a number of people and travel to different places. That way they experience good amount of human interaction. Therefore they need to be really good at their interpersonal skills in order to complete the tasks and make their research better.

2. The writers often work with their teams which consists of so many other professional such as editors, publishers, proofreaders etc. While working with these teams the writers have to maintain the regular communications throughout the project. Sometimes they are required to meet them also. In all these cases they have to be really good at their interpersonal skills so that they can effectively work in the project by collaborating with other professionals.

3. The writers have to attend a number of conferences and seminars where they get a chance to meet other writers and common people. They have to be good at interpersonal skills in order to mark their impression and make more network in the professional world and even outside it.

4. Every now and then the writers are required to attend the important sessions regarding their books and other woks.
