Top 50 Narrative Essay Topics For College Students

A narrative essay means the essay takes you from one position to another. The same may be said about the persuasive essay or even an expository essay, but unlike those, a narrative essay will only use a one-track method to get you there. The most common method is to have the writer write in the first person and to have events occur in a chronological or systematic order. Those are not the only ways a narrative essay may be written, but they are the easiest and if you have not written many narrative essays in the past then those are the tools you should use. Academic essays do not usually reward creativity. In fact, some of the highest scoring essays are often the ones that look as if they were written by robots. The field is a little more open with a narrative essay. Maybe it is because the writer is allowed to take the reader on a journey that is more personal. The field is a little more open when it comes to the creative use of language.


You are getting the reader from one point to another, but to get them there you may have to evoke emotions or some sort of empathy, and many humans respond to the creative use and choice of language. Pick up on the cues from your professor as to if your essay should be personal or not. If there is a focus on experience, then your professor is probably looking for something personal. Do not pick a topic that is too personal because it will only lead to embarrassment in the long run. If you are asked for a personal essay, then a narrative essay is probably the best way to go. It brings people into your personal world a lot quicker, especially if you write it in the first person. Your topic should not be a tired one, but it also doesn’t have to be original. If it is a personal essay, then your professor isn’t expecting to read about how you climbed the African K2, or how you saved a puppy from a burning house. This is a sneaky but clever way of grubbing an extra mark or two. Your professor has a motivation for giving you the essay.


Does your professor want to see how much you have learned so far? Is your professor checking your writing skills? Is this a practice piece or a graded term paper piece? Does your professor want you to cover a coming subject/module so he or she doesn’t have to go over it so much in class? Is this assignment very similar to the one last term? You should probably add a conclusion because your teacher may have a marking guide that insists upon one, though you should know that a narrative essay does not always need a conclusion in the same way that a fictional book does not always have to say ‘The End’ at the end. It may be a good idea to finish with a strong concluding statement, but even then, your professor may be looking for something substantial because of a restrictive marking guide. It is therefore better to add at least a paragraph for your conclusion, in which you can cover the guiding principle of your essay, or the moral/lesson held within your essay. You can go over the lesson/moral/principle again to highlight it from earlier, or you can reach your lesson/moral/principle within the conclusion. 5. A lie can have serious consequences. 7.

5. As a name, not individual words or sentences are rendered to a plan, but detailed phrases. Separate words are too “narrow” and specific, and the main idea or topic is rather difficult to convey. But complex sentences do not fit, because they represent an already completed thought. It must be a phrase that is more suitable for the plan. a Go Back
