Introduction to Fiction as a Literary Genre

Hello Lovelies, and welcome back to the blog. Today we are going to talk about the fifth and final Pillar of Genre, and I am finally getting to introduce you to Fiction as a Literary Genre. There are a ton of subgenres that fall under the fiction category and I am so excited to go over them all and find out your favorites. Let’s dive straight in, shall we?

Descriptive Nonfiction Genre

Descriptive Nonfiction, also called Creative Nonfiction, is a type of nonfiction that uses all five senses to help the reader get a visual of what the writer is trying to describe.

Introduction to Nonfiction as a Literary Genre

Hello Lovelies, and welcome back to the blog. Today we are going to talk about the fourth Pillar of Genre, and I am introducing you to the concept of Nonfiction as a Literary Genre. If the thought of Nonfiction as a literary genre catches you by surprise, I must admit that I was initially surprised as well. I used to think of genre as being solidly in the realm of fictional narrative.

You may not be convinced yet, but I hope to change that idea over the course of the next few weeks.

Hello Lovelies, and welcome back to the blog. Today is the last day that we're talking about the second Pillar of Genre. Let’s talk about Poetry. How do you define what Poetry even is? Would you say that it has a meter or cadence? That it has to rhyme and have multiple verses? That it has to take a specific form? All of those things may be aspects of poetry, and yet poems exist that could also be said to have none of those qualities. Today we are going to go into Lyric Poetry, so let’s talk about it.
