Non-Fiction Writing

Non-fiction writing, sometimes called “informational writing,” is distinguished from other types of text by its purpose – namely “to communicate accurate, credible information about things, events, people, constructs, concepts and theories” (Ministry of Education, 2006c, p. 79). Fountas and Pinnell suggest that the purpose of non-fiction writing is to “inform or persuade,” whereas the purpose of fiction is to “entertain and involve readers (or listeners) in stories of life” (2001, p. 393). The line between the two can be a fluid one – consider documentaries and docudramas. Yet, by and large, fiction, “fashioned in the author’s imagination,” is not held accountable to standards of evidence, whereas non-fiction, “based in fact,” needs to be documented and verified by other sources (Fountas & Pinnell, 2001, p. 399).
