Genre Mashup

Genre Mashup


✍🏼 Your Challenge, Should You Choose to Accept it ...

Find three books from different genres that you are familiar with. Make some notes on why each book fits within its genre.

Now try a genre mashup! Take a character from one of the books and try putting them in a scene with elements, such as plot or setting, from a book that is from a different genre than that character’s book. You can even use elements from more than one kind of genre.

  • Maybe Harry Potter will go on a sci-fi space adventure.
  • Or maybe the characters from a realistic book about friendship will get dropped into a fantasy world.

Write a fan fiction scene based on your ideas.
