List and examples of genres
In a multi-genre project, you have an unlimited variety of genres from which to choose.What types of genres can you use?
Your multi-genre project will contain a variety of genres that are informative, literary/creative, and functional. You will have a lot of choice about what to include. But BEWARE—this should not be a haphazard collage of disjointed "stuff;" you must connect the genres and what they represent with a central, significant theme or idea (repetend). Your creative efforts must be informed by solid research, including research about the genres themselves.
Before you select each genre for your project, you’ll need to ask yourself, “Why am I choosing this genre? What do I want to be able to say or express through this genre?” If you can’t answer that question, you are not ready to work on it. Your choices must be intentional and have apurpose.
