Abstract

Narrative non-fiction is a form of writing which combines portraiture and self-reflection with reportage and critical analysis journalism. It is perhaps the most advanced form of writing as it aims to create interesting stories out of the lives of real people. However, in this aim to be interesting, writers dangerously tread the fine line between fact and fiction. This paper aims to underline the importance of being truthful in this genre of writing.
