Parameters: 500-750 words (roughly 2 typed, double spaced pages); MLA 8 format; no secondary sources/no Works Cited page needed.

• We often learn the most about ourselves when facing a challenge, even (some would say especially) if our efforts result in failure.  For the narrative essay, write about an experience (event or conversation) that has shaped you in a significant, lasting way. Your narrative should be creative non-fiction, which means that you may take some liberties in your storytelling, but must accurately present the impact of the event.

• Whatever experience you choose, keep in mind that other students in this class will read your essay—do not choose an experience that you are uncomfortable sharing with your classmates. 

• Your narrative should demonstrate a clear focus through a thesis statement positioned within the first paragraph of the essay. The thesis should express what you learned about yourself from this experience. Avoid generalities, clichés, or “life-lessons” in your thesis. Instead, make the thesis personal and specific to you and your experience.

• There should be at least two examples in your narrative of detailed imagery, where you spend three to five sentences describing a setting in terms of how it looks, sounds, smells, feels, etc.

• Each paragraph of your narrative should also demonstrate reflection and analysis—you should not just tell a detailed story but provide insight about and interpretation of the events you describe (Why did you feel the way you did? What unforeseen or hidden causes led to these events? etc.).

In each paragraph, underline the sentence that best expresses the point and purpose of that paragraph. Use correct MLA heading , font, spacing, and page numbers (See Template in Course Content). Instead of your name, give your student ID number. Do not print your name in either the essay or the title of the document you upload.
