A to Z Challenge: Literary Genres

08 Apr

I’m in! This year, for the first time, I’ll participate in the much-applauded, highly-acclaimed writer’s blog hop called A to Z Challenge.

My theme:

A to Z: Literary Genres

a to z

…a genre for every letter of the alphabet. I’ll include:

Definition

Writing tips

Popular books in the genre

I skipped the genre tips I did in the past. Many of these were new to me (like Kitchen Sink–who knew?) and I’m amazed how much I learned researching for this blog hop. Here are the genres I will cover in April:

A Alternative Fiction

B Biography

C Commercial fiction

D Dystopian

E Essay

F Fan Fiction 

Grant Proposals

H Humor 

I Inspirational 

Journaling

K Kitchen sink

L LGBTQ 

M  Military  

N Nonfiction

O Occult

P Psychologic Thriller  

Q Quiet Horror

R Religious fiction  

S Serialized  

T Tragedy

U Upmarket 

Vignettes

W Women’s fiction 

X Xenofiction    

Y Young Adult

Zombie Fiction

      Those are frightening. I don’t read many of them. If it’s a good author, they seem all too real!
