Non-fiction is a type or genre of writing based on facts and real life rather than a made-up or fictional story. Non-fiction includes any kind of text designed to give information. There are a range of forms for non-fiction including:
Information leafletsNewspaper or magazine articles
Advertisements and advertorials
Film and book reviews
Once you know what kind of texts you are reading there are two important points to consider:
Audience: who is the text addressing?
Purpose: what is the text trying to do? Non-fiction texts can inform, explain, describe, give instructions, persuade, give advice.
