- There should be a purpose behind telling the story that speaks in some way to someone else.
- For our purposes, consider your audience to be your instructor and your classmates, who represent a wide range of experiences and backgrounds.
- Narrative essays share a familiar structure. They have titles, introductions, body paragraphs, and conclusions, but they also afford the writer a great deal of freedom and creativity to share your story in a way that is true to your experiences.
