Tall Tale Genre

Hello Lovelies, and welcome to the blog. Last week,we talked all about the Folk Tale pillar of genre and I introduced you to the main subgenres within the Folk Tale category.

Year of Genre

This year, I want to mainly talk about genre, and specifically about the different types of genres, as well as what isn't genre. There is a lot to learn this year can be useful to you in regard to genre, so please stay tuned.
