    What's my genre?

    So, Iíve got this completed MS chronicling my years English teacher in Japan, but now that Iíve decided to try and publish Iím stuck trying to identify its genre. Itís really a compilation of stand alone encounters and (mis)adventures without much of an overarching plot. Should I bill it as memoir? A collection of short stories? Is there some more nuanced genre I havenít thought of? Thanks for lending your expertise!

    If they're all true stories that happened to you, I'd say memoir.

    Memoir, or maybe narrative nonfiction/personal narrative.
