Narratively is creating human stories, boldly told

Hey there, we’re the team behind Narratively — passionate journalists and storytellers who got sick of the endless news cycle and click-bait headlines. We care deeply about stories that too often have no place in the media landscape. So, five years ago, we took a leap and started Narratively, an online publication focused on ordinary people with extraordinary stories.

Since then, we've produced thousands of stories and built a loyal readership. Time Magazine named us one of the 50 Best Websites, Columbia Journalism Review called us one of the 11 Best Experiments in Journalism, and the Webby Awards named us an Honoree for Best Writing two years in a row. 

But we want to do more. For a long time, fans have asked us to create a podcast. We're listening! We've also heard many requests for a print edition. Yes, we're in! More video, and animation? Of course! How about stories printed on tote bags? Check out our rewards section!

We're doing all that, but we need your help. There has never been a more important moment in our culture for high-quality, in-depth, truthful journalism — storytelling that takes its time to tell the whole, profound, nuanced story. Help us do just that by becoming a Narratively Patron today.

In 2017 we launched our first-ever Untold Story Award, assigning a writer to report one big, important, under-the-radar story (at a great rate!) Help us do it again in 2018.
