If you’re a keen reader, you’re probably already familiar with genre fiction. In the book-trade, genre fiction describes any popular subject with stories that follow similar conventions. Romance, horror, fantasy, sci-fi, historical, and inspirational are all genres, and if you pick up any of those books you know what sort of story to expect.
In Chapterly’s e-course on writing genre fiction, we’ll guide you through identifying the genres and subgenres that best fit your book, and how to write a unique story when the reader already knows the plot. Learn how to identify tropes and avoid cliches, use your writing to add tension to your story, and keep your reader on the edge of their seat right to the very end.
Writing genre fiction isn’t just about following the rules. At the end of the course, we’ll take a look at the genre rules you can bend, and even break, to make your story stand out from the rest. In just five days, learning in short bursts, you’ll gain an understanding of how to write within a genre to create a compelling, original story that readers will love.
