Genre fiction (horror, crime, mystery, western, sci-fi, etc.) is both very popular and very demanding. Genre works are saddled with specific expectations and demands. Literary magazines and publishers are often quick to dismiss genre works. The key to breaking this trend is to produce high quality and thought-provoking genre works. Explore how to satisfy genre fans and readers as well as ways to bring genre works to larger audiences.
Keith Cadieux lives and writes in Winnipeg, where he grew up. His first published work was the novella Gaze which was released by Quattro Books in 2010. He holds a Master’s degree in Creative Writing from the University of Manitoba where he also received the Robert Kroetsch Creative MA Thesis Prize. Keith teaches English at the University of Winnipeg and will be working on a new collection of short stories while serving as Aqua Books’ Writer in Residence from May to August, 2011.
