• What is narrative nonfiction, and what makes some narrative nonfiction great?
     
    Narrative nonfiction tells a story in much the same way that fiction tells a story; the main difference being that with narrative nonfiction, the story is true. However, telling a story only makes the nonfiction a narrative, it doesn't make it great. Great narrative nonfiction requires a great storyteller - someone with a keen grasp of plot, character development, pacing, conflict and resolution.
