About Talking about Genre
Despite getting sometimes overlooked by more ‘literary’ peers and institutions, genre writers are a fresh and diverse group whose books captivate huge and dedicated readerships. With the current trend for fantasy adaptations and the renewed appetite for speculative fiction, it seems like the lines between ‘literary fiction’ and genre are becoming more blurred. Is genre disrupting ‘Literature’ from the bottom up? What challenges do genre writers still face? Join these fantastic writers for a conversation about how genre books contribute new ideas, solutions and imaginings to our cultural conversations.
