Thank you so much for making Narrative Night 2022 an incredible success! Our live event has ended, but if you want to experience the night’s magic—and learn how you can help support Narrative’s work—you can watch a recording here.

Narrative Night returns with another evening of wit, wisdom, and poetry, featuring our 2022 Narrative Prize winners, Morgan Talty and Tryphena Yeboah, introduced by Gbenga Adesina. Also on deck: Pulitzer Prize winner and guest judge, Jericho Brown, will introduce this year’s Narrative High School Writing Contest winners as we celebrate a new generation of voices that unite and inspire us. Finally, we’ll wrap up the evening with Ocean Vuong and other surprise guests. We can’t wait to start the show!

Pin this: in this most challenging year, Narrative maintained our commitment to discover, pay, and publish the most remarkable, diverse voices in the world. What’s more, our flagship Narrative in the Schools program reached teachers and students in 20 countries and 212 schools in the U.S.—in all, more than 100,000 students inspired by the gift of story! How’d we do it? With your support, Narrative empowers teachers and students—particularly those in underserved communities—with a first-rank library of literature, video tutorials, and curated reading guides they can carry in their pockets. A world of reading that opens minds and bridges divides—and that is always open and free. Our digital campfire for storytelling invites the world to gather ’round.

We know ourselves and our world by the stories we tell.
