FWP BOOK GENRES
12 Intentional Genres of Literary Works
It is always a collaborative effort in identifying the best literary genres to support our mission of global community enrichment. Our support team, alongside a group of highly-influential advisors, earmarked classifications where our messaging would be best received, and immediately accessible. As part of the FWP internal ACID test (Accountability, Commitment, Integrity, and Dedication), we customized the suite of predominantly non-fiction works as the foundation of our independent publishing books. As we grow, we intend to expand into fiction genres that are beneficial to community growth and knowledge sharing.
