Writing can come in many styles and forms depending on what the writer is trying to convey.

It’s true that most writing texts do fall into each of these types. But, a writing text can borrow aspects of other genres. This means that you don’t necessarily have to stick to a particular genre when writing.

There are many types of text and each text genre has its own characteristics. Below you have a list with some of the most used text genres: 

  • Narrative ( novels, short stories, picture books)
  • Recount (diaries, journals, short stories, novels, memoirs)
  • Poetry
  • Procedure (recipes, rule books, directions and maps, instruction manuals, “how to” books, experiments)
  • Description
  • Information Report (magazine and newspaper reports, letters, editorials, critical reviews, essays)
  • Explanation
  • Response
  • Exposition (essays, position papers, articles, advertisements)
  • Discussion

In this editable poster you have some text types examples that you can edit and customize to your liking. If for example, you don’t want these types of texts in English, you can translate them into your language.
