Forums Writing Chapter 2 Narratives

Narratives

Are there examples of long narratives vs narrative essays?

I’d like to read some to get a better understanding of them…

Thank you!

Susana-

May depend upon your definition, but long, non-fiction, travel writing narratives may even be book length. Any particular geographical area interest you? I’d be happy to make some recommendations.

@Susana- thanks for your questions. Here is a great example of a long narrative:

here’s a short narrative, just published a couple days ago:

http://thetravelersnotebook.com/notes-from-road/notes-on-nariman-house-the-travel-of-remembrance/

in the days and weeks ahead i’ll be writing a bit more about the difference between what i like to call ‘notes’ and what i consider narrative features. for now, the key difference, one you can see in these two examples, is that a short narrative or note usually centers on a single scene or key event, whereas a feature usually covers multiple days / scenes.

hope that helps.

that does help thank you david!

i was just going over the key terms and trying to make sense of it.

also.

because its happening to me.

i am going through the chapters more slowly than they are popping up available to me.

will students be cut from accessing them at some point in time?

thanks!
