"A Multigenre paper arises from research, experience, and imagination.
It is not an uninterrupted, expository monologue nor a seamless
narrative nor a collection of poems. A multigenre paper is composed of
many genres and subgenres, each piece self-contained, making a point of
its own, yet connected by theme or topic and sometimes by language,
images, and content. In addition to many genres, a multigenre paper may
also contain many voices, not just the author's. The trick is to make
the paper hang together." ~Tom Romano, Blending Genre, Altering Style (2000, pp.x-xi.)
