Genre can be a tricky beast. Many writers spend a lot of time pondering what sort of genre they’ll write or how their idea or character fits within different genres. Sometimes they have their full novel written but they’re still not sure what genre it “fits” into. And does it have to fit into one genre anyway? Certainly there are a lot of novels out there that cross genres at some level, from the sci-fi murder mystery to literary thrillers.
Writers, editors, agents, publishers and more share their thoughts, experiences and stories.
