You are so close!! What you need to do is NOT use render_to_response(), but just render().

Good luck with Django, it is a truly great web framework!

def writer_detail(request, A_pk):
    writer = Writer.objects.get(pk=A_pk) 
    return render(request, 'articles/writer_detail.html',  {'writer': writer})
