The Quest Narrative

A quest narrative is one of the oldest and surest ways of telling a story. The Odyssey is essentially a quest narrative, with Odysseus’s journey back to his wife and son serving as the basis for the quest. Since then there have been thousands of quest narratives written, including King Arthur and the Knights of the Roundtable, detective stories, Moby Dick, and many others. I’ll be teaching a writing class on the Quest Narrative today at the Write on the Sound Conference in Edmonds, WA. Please stop by to say hello!
