Sorry, but whether you're happy with the word "writer" or not, that's the word that was used in the Occupational Outlook Handbook from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which was the specific context being discussed. Call yourself "communicator" all you like, but don't expect to find that description in the government labor statistics or most commercially available salary surveys.
