Narrative Essay Building Blocks

 

 

Introduction

 

Begin your narrative essay with a statement that defines the subject of the entire piece.  This sentence may restate the prompt.  This is the sentence that summarizes what you will be telling the reader. (You may use a short attention-grabber if it directly relates to the topic.)

 

 

 

Body

 

Write one paragraph for each of the main events in the narrative. Each paragraph should include one event and provide interesting details about the event.  The events need to follow a logical sequence.  Use strong transitional words to make it easier for the reader to follow.

 

 

 

Conclusion

 

The conclusion is the final paragraph of the narrative essay.  State how the experience ended.  You may restate how your narrative relates to the prompt.
