This week we kick off season two with a look at the definition of genre. It’s not as boring as it sounds.
You can also listen using any number of podcast platforms and apps including Spotify, Breaker, Pocket Casts, Radio Public, Stitcher, and Google Podcasts.
Season 2, Episode 1: What is Genre and why is it important?
Genre is a fancy way of saying “this is what kind of story this is….” We explore Shawn Coyne’s definition of genre and talk about why it’s important to know what genre you’re writing in if you want readers to come away satisfied.
