The Narrative: Mid-August Round-up

Some of our amazing essays for your perusal

Welcome to August my sweet scribblers!

I trust that the summer months (for those in the northern hemisphere) are suitably nourishing both your body and mind, and the words are flowing steadily for all Narrative Collective readers and writers.

Rather than blast you with a formal newsletter, I am saving that for the start of September and am here to simply share some great essays that I and the fellow editors at The Narrative Collective have read so far this month.

All of the following stories touched me in some manner, or gave me something to think about. I hope you find them as thought-provoking, moving, and entertaining as I did.

So, without further ado, here is a lovely collection for you to enjoy as you lounge by the pool or on the beach…
