Narratively is looking for writers

April 5, 2022

Posted by Margarita Sanabria

Have you ever let a secret or lie spin out of control, and kept the truth from your closest friends, family or coworkers for years, or even decades? Narratively is looking for first-person stories from people who have let a seemingly simple lie turn into years of increasingly complex deception, and are willing to speak openly about how the weight of that choice affected their life and relationships — and what it feels like to finally come clean. These can be first-person pieces about your own experience or reported stories.

Deadline: 15 April 2022


Narratively is a media platform and production company that celebrates the diversity of humanity through authentic storytelling. Its network of talented journalists and storytellers come to Narratively with the passion projects they care about most—having combed the world’s big cities and hidden corners for the characters and narratives that mainstream media aren’t finding.
