Fiction VS Non- fiction: What’s the Difference?

Just today I was telling the new students of my club -the Literary Club- about different genres of writing when one of my previous students said the two broad categories of writing are – fiction and non- fiction.

He was quite right. The above chart says it all. It explains quite well what both categories mean. So a story written using your own imagination with no historical or factual accuracy would be fiction, whereas a debate, non- fiction.

Think about the book you are reading at the moment. Is it fictional or non-fictional?

Can you also think of other genres of writing that fit under each category? Like poetry would fit under fictional.
