Narrative writing is a writing style that describes a story or series of events from the first person voice. This lesson focuses on narrative writing activities for groups.

What Is Narrative Writing?

Narrative writing is writing that recounts events in sequence. A narrative story not only tells us the result of an event, but everything that led up to it as well. For instance, picture a famous actor you like - someone who stars in big movies and has found lots of success. We might know the end of his story - the success - but that ending only came after a sequence of events. The actor likely had to move out to Hollywood, spend every day auditioning, take bit roles in commercials and work his way to larger productions before he made it big. A sequence of events led to his happy 'ending.' So it is with narrative writing.

Students can do a variety of exercises and activities alone in narrative writing. However, the following are a select set of projects that students can do in larger groups as well.
