S8E9 – The Non-Fiction Genre

Genres can be tricky things for new authors. The genre often determines the audience, writing style, and even basic themes contained in the book. Many new authors ask in forums across the internet which genre is best for their book. This series is dedicated to those authors, in hopes of answering those questions. Each episode will break down a different genre, from the expected word count to the sentence structure.

Non-fiction is another umbrella genre that is widely popular to write. It can cover anything from cookbooks and self-help to biographies and memoirs. While many people want to write in this genre, it does require consideration before attempting to publish with the expectation of making money.

First aired March 30, 2020.
