Write Your Best-Selling Narrative!

Write Your Best-Selling Narrative!


In this class, you’ll learn how to build narrative momentum from the first line of your story onward. This means using concise verb choice, to “show not tell,” and getting to the meat of your story without giving too much away too soon. Narratives are an essential part of our ability to share experiences and lessons. Composing narratives allows students to stimulate their imagination and foster artistic expression. The process enables students to express their stories creatively while helping them to clarify their thinking. As students explore and share, they more strongly embrace their uniqueness, not only as a writer, but as a person. 


Ms Kait will guide students as they author well-structured narratives (both true and fiction) that include:


  • A narrator, characters, and a point of view


  • Descriptive detail and sensory language to describe characters, settings, and experiences


  • Dialogue, pacing, reflection, and details and descriptions of characters, setting, and experiences


  • Thought-out word choice


  • A clear structure with a logical order and flow, as shown through the use of transition words and phrases and a logical sequence


  • A conclusion that is connected to and builds on the narrative
