I'm a newbie and have had feedback my first submission may not be true to my group's genre. Is there somewhere to see definitions of the various genres?

Thanks.

Here's one I'm not sure about: in the finals of the Screenwriting Challenge, the genre is open, but we must enter what genre we were going for.

I really, really, want to put Magic Realism, but that's not in the list of possibilities for the other rounds. 

So: just put Fantasy and grit my teeth?

Yeah, kind of in this boat too...I feel like magical/mystical elements (even if not in the "traditional" sense still equal fantasy, yes?

On the one hand, it's not a drop-down list--one can type in whatever one chooses. On the other hand, it would bite hard to be DQ'd on something like that at this point.
