This is a question that has been asked many times over the years. Here is my opinion on the subject.
We go to English class and learn how to spell, the correct structure of a sentence, and the different parts of a sentence. We learn the correct way to create a paragraph, an article, and a story. We enroll in workshops to help us improve our writing skills.
Can writing be learned? Yes.
A writer is a person with a unique perception on life. He thrives to create new worlds, educate others, and/or entertain an audience (even if that audience is himself). He enjoys the process of building words into sentences, sentences into paragraphs, and paragraphs into stories or articles.
Can you learn to be a writer? No.
