Name 10 genres you encounter in your everyday life?
Name one or two that you like best and say why. Who is their audience?
I like many genres, but my favorite are Narrative and Biography genres. Narrative genre is information about incident given in a story. As a reader this kind of genre is positively affective to me when I deal with it because telling a story that attracts my attention and simple to keep information in my mind. As a writer, it gives me more ways and space to write and feed the reader. Narrative’s audience are people who prefer stories and significant events. Biography is a narrative of a person’s life. As a writer and reader, I like this genre because It describes a person’s life in detail, which can help and show what the reader may do not know or has never experience. Also knowing about someone life, could inspire the reader a lot. Biography’s audience are people who need inspiration, instructions of things in their life and whom want to learn from others. Both Narrative and Biography genres are presented in a format or language that tells a story.
What is your understanding of the term “genre”?
I understand that genre is a tool every writer must use it before start writing. Genre is also a tool to distinguish type of writing and determine the audience of that writing.
