What is Nonfiction?

Is it factual or imaginary? What is nonfiction? Nonfiction is factual. It is about real people, place and things.

When a person is writing nonfiction they can either report the facts with their personal opinions or not. It is difficult to completely eliminate ones opinions. The reader needs to be careful to keep this in mind when reading.

Types of nonfiction:

A Diary is a day-to-day record of a person’s activities and thoughts.

An Autobiography is a story of a person’s life. The writer wants to share his/her life events.

A Biography is a story of someone else’s life. The writer uses reports or first-hand knowledge of the person to write their story.

A Memoir is like an autobiography and is about the writer’s life and concentrates on one event.

What is nonfiction? It is factual and is about real people, places and things.
