Mission Statement / Editorial Focus
Narrative was founded on the belief that there should be no socioeconomic barrier to accessing great literature. Our modern library of thousands of first-rank stories, poems and essays is free to all readers, and we are committed to paying writers fairly. Beyond our dedication to fair pay, Narrative's expansive digital presence provides established and emerging writers with a unique platform to reach a diverse, global readership that includes students, teachers, writers, and readers of all ages and demographics. Our Narrative in the Schools program supports teachers who are too often hampered by limited resources and provides inspiration, mentorship, and learning tools to a new generation of readers and writers.
