Ketuvim might better be translated as "the anthology," the canonical collection from the post-prophetic age.
Most of the individual books in Ketuvim were written or at least put in final form in Judea during the period of Persian and Hellenistic rule, from the fifth through the second centuries BCE.
Certain of the Ketuvim were associated with figures from Nevi'im, probably from early on--Proverbs and Song of Songs with King Solomon, Lamentations with Jeremiah, and Psalms as a whole with King David.

 Targum - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nevertheless, later halakhic authorities argued that the requirement to privately review targum (which means "translation") might also be met by reading a translation in the current vernacular in place of the official Targum, or else by studying an important commentary containing midrashic interpretation (especially that of Rashi).
Nevertheless, most books of Ketuvim have targumim, whose origin is mostly western (Land of Israel) rather than eastern (Babylonia).
The targumim to Ketuvim were unknown in Yemen, so no living tradition of pronunciation was preserved for them.

 Hebrew Canon - True Order of the Books of the Old Testament
The Hebrew Bible is often known among Jews as TaNaKh, an acronym derived from the names of its three divisions: Torah (Instruction, or Law, also called the Pentateuch), Nevi'im (Prophets), and Ketuvim (Writings).
The Ketuvim consist of religious poetry and wisdom literature--Psalms, Proverbs, and Job, a collection known as the "Five Megillot" ("scrolls"; i.e., Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, and Esther, which have been grouped together according to the annual cycle of their public reading in the synagogue)--and the books of Daniel, Ezra and Nehemiah, and Chronicles.
The number of books in the Hebrew canon is thus 24, referring to the sum of the separate scrolls on which these works were traditionally written in ancient times.

The Gemara on 116b offers a number of explanations revolving around laypeople needing instruction in halacha and Ketuvim (such as the deeply philosophical Proverbs) distracting people during the lecture or in the study hall.
He is quoted as saying that Ketuvim is not read at all on Shabbat so that people will know that if Ketuvim may not be read then certainly contracts and legal documents may not be read either.
