March 2017: Why Genre Matters

Posted on

Author/Editor Lee Warren shares, “Why Genre Matters.”

Readers have certain expectations when they buy books.
Romance readers expect a HEA (happily ever after).
Readers of women’s fiction expect strong female protagonists.
Memoir readers expect the author to be vulnerable, while devotional or how-to book readers expect insight.
If you don’t meet genre/reader expectations, your manuscript will be met with resistance. Join us to learn more about genres so you can determine which ones to target with your own writing, and, ultimately, satisfy your readers.

The meeting room is on the basement level. Park on the east side of the building and walk into the lower door.

After the meeting, we’ll gather for our informal Afterglow chat session at Village Inn, 7837 Dodge Street.
