A question on genres  Reply with quote  

I have been reading through the Canadian Writers Market listings, researching what agents and publishers would be a good fit, and I have a question.
When it doesnt specify memoirs, what other category would they fall under?
Biography?
Non fiction?
Literary non fiction?

Most likely biography, as memoir is a subset thereof, but if they say non-fiction and don't specify biographies, take a look at other titles they've represented, and see if they have any biographers or memoirists among their other clients.
