Literary Fiction Genres | List

“Literary Fiction Genres”. Writing to Publish.

“This list of fiction genres is drawn from numerous sources, including universities, author’s pages, book vendors, public libraries, magazines, academics, and writers group sites; plus the main Wikipedia article on Literary Genres. The subgenre lists have been expanded with data from the good folks on Analog magazine’s old discussion board, and our own W2P guest speaker presentations. (These are just a few popular links, out of a great many.)…

Some of the ‘broader’ genres listed here might be thought of as ‘descriptive’ or ‘functional’ categories instead, and there is no real agreement on which is which. There is plenty of overlap between subgenres (as with American West Romances and Romantic Westerns), and we’ve chosen to be a thorough as possible. Astute researchers will encounter several different classification systems. In practice, a novel’s (or short story’s) genre is often ‘fixed’ by its cover and marketing, while the work itself could fairly belong to two or more genres.”
