Multigenre Ideas For Your Blogs

Your blog is a great place to experiment with many different forms of writing. Some forms of writing follow set patterns (e.g. lists, formal letters) while others are more free-flowing. Here are examples to get you started.

Biographical essay

A biography is an account of a person’s life. It can be strictly non-fiction (factual) but when you’re writing for a blog you will usually add a personal touch.

Suggestions Do choose someone you’re really interested in. Don’t only write some facts – personalize the essay with your own opinions or reasons for choosing that person.
