we’ll use the genres you suggested in your P3.2 Project Proposal submission as the examples. Just as with text messages and recipes, and just as explained in the movie genre theory videos, every genre has certain expectations that can either be followed, ignored, or exceeded depending on what you want to accomplish.
We notice these conventions all the time, in writing and in conversation, but don’t always study them this deliberately. Part of this project will involve you determining how this kind of genre analysis can help you as you enter new writing situations during college and beyond.
Locate and list three or more examples of the genres you proposed making for your community. Provide links to the examples and answer the following questions in approximately 250-500 words. (The examples you choose here do not have to be the three types of genres that you create for this project.)
- In your examples, what major similarities and differences do you notice at first? There may be superficial things about these genres and more substantive features of each genre. Fully explain all that you can analyze about the genres.
- How does the community typically react, receive, or respond and how do you anticipate your audience’s reaction to your proposed genres? What will they do with the information? Will some of the audience use them differently than others? Are they shared or circulated more than once? Are any of your genres targeting only certain members of the community? If so, explain the specific audience. What is this genre’s role in this community? Explain the context for each genre.
- Which genre conventions does each of your genres address? Do any of your chosen genres push back on or subvert the genre conventions? Explain for each genre.
- Use this analysis to help you narrow your project to three specific genres, if you haven’t already narrowed down. What are those three genres? How does this analysis help shape the creation of your genres in your thinking and planning?

5 Literary Genres Student Name Institutional Affiliation Course Code Instructor’s Name Date of Submission Part 1 What community are you working with? I will work with the Sorority community of Alabama State University in this project. The sorority community communicates by writing newspapers, publishing information on websites, distributing posters and flyers, and giving speeches and presentations to encourage all the community members. (Yates, 2020) What genres do you think about this community? The sorority community uses multiple genres, which include; The use of rhetorical genre in writing newspapers allows writers to choose and express different contexts most convincingly, making it appealing to the audience Use narrative genres to entertain others and engage with them during speeches and presentations, allowing them to create an imaginative experience on the topics. Use pop and R&B music genres to pass on the information essential to educating other community members. Use memes to create and distribute memes to describe particular situations and their outcomes, allowing community members to be kept of their activities. Use motivational posts to encourage one another to keep improving, thus contributing positively to the institution. Use email to pass crucial information from one community member to another, allowing them to set the policies they will use to develop the community. Use brochures to create awareness of the activities taking place and the schedule of the activities, keeping everyone informed. Part 2: From the list above, which genres do you think are the best to write in? The most effective genres can be emailed to pass information across all the community members, publishing a newsletter, creating helpful resources such as brochures and written speeches and setting a forum where people can ask questions and answers. The community perfectly fits these genres as they aim to pass information to the community and develop it. Other genres that can be used in the community include rhetorical and narrative journals to attract the audience. Provide a genre of your community. One of the standard genres used in the community is the rhetorical genre. This genre is essential in our community as it allows presenters and publishers to choose and filter contexts appropriately, making it relevant to the audience. Other communities hardly use this genre to filter the information, and it hardly becomes appealing to be followed by the audience, making them lose community participants in various projects. (Casal et al., 2020) Do you have any questions about the genres you will create? Yes, I have questions about the genre I will create. Since our genre involves filtering information to attract the audience, what will happen if the author decides to deceive about the community project’s progress to impress the community members to prevent them from living with other parties? What will be done to prevent such scenarios from being experienced? Why these genres? Currently, I am learning narrative, humour and also fiction. I am suggesting these genres as they can allow participation by all members of the project as they can subject their questions to the author whenever they do not understand. The narrative will be an essential genre as the author will be able to emphasize particular contexts, making it appealing to the audience and making the audience memorize the information. The fiction genre will allow the author to develop a story project, capturing the audience’s attention and allowing them to remember it for a long. Humour will be essential to amuse the audience, allowing them to be active during presentations. Reference Yates, R. (2020).
