qonwI' is a tlhIngan Hol word that is commonly translated as "composer", and can refer to an author, songwriter, playwright, or the like. (tlhIngan Hol reference: Klingon for the Galactic Traveler)
The word qonwI' consists of the verb qon (meaning "compose", or "record") and the verb suffix -wI' (meaning "one who does", similar to the English suffix -er). (tlhIngan Hol reference: The Klingon Dictionary)
The word qonwI' might also be translated as "one who records" or "one who transcribes". This reflects the Klingon view that songs and stories are not invented, but rather they have their own, independent existence, waiting to be discovered, written down and performed.
