What you’ll learn to do: examine characteristics of writing narratives
Narrative writing can be a powerful addition to your writing toolkit. Humans seem to hunger for stories, and so narrative may be the most well-received of rhetorical devices. We use stories to educate and to entertain: They often feel friendlier than lists of facts or citations of scientific studies.
As Philip Pullman said,
After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need most in the world.
