Python Django Basics Django Templates Writer view

What is Wrong ? Why isnt working

Create a view named writer_detail that takes a pk argument. It should .get() the Writer with the requested pk and render() the "articles/writer_detail.html" template. Provide the Writer in the context as "writer". I dont know what I have done incorrect ...

from django.shortcuts import render

from .models import Article,Writer

def article_list(request):
    articles = Article.objects.all()
    return render(request, 'articles/article_list.html', {'articles': articles})

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

You're missing a colon

def writer_detail(request,pk)  # <--- missing colon here 
    objects = Writer.objects.get(pk=pk)
    return render(request,"articles/writer_detail.html",{'writer': objects})
