Top 20 Exclusive Narrative Essay Topics On Up-To-Date Issues


Assignments usually aren’t fun, but when you’re assigned to write a narrative essay, it’s really not that bad at all. You can tell a story that you experienced and related it to a certain topic at hand. So if you’ve recently been assigned to write on an up-to-date issue of your choice, these topics might give you some ideas.

  • Technology: Teachers and professors never get enough of articles depicting how smart phones have aided in dumbing down our generation (ironically). And it should not be hard to write about because we have all come across people who made perfect examples for that specific matter. You can depict a situation that has happened to you which emphasizes this notion.
  • Cyber bullying: You may have experienced it yourself, and if you know someone’s story, you can always tell it for them then adding a dash of your opinion on how to deal with it.
  • Is college important?: Have you recently realized that you do not need a college education for high pay? You can portray a personal experience that has driven you to come to this conclusion.
  • Intentional Racism: Saying something that accidentally offends someone’s race is one thing, but intentionally accosting someone because they’re not the same race as you is disturbing to think about. If you have recently witnessed something of that sort, you can use it as your topic.
  • Racial stereotypes: Stereotypes can be quite prejudicial even if they’re not intended to be. You can always narrate about a situation where you’ve experienced this kind of stereotyping.
  • Terrorist attacks: Okay, so you most likely have not experienced one yourself, but this is where your parents and grandparents come in handy. If you know any terrorist attack survivors, you can always ask them to tell you their story that you can then write about yourself.
  • Islamophobia: Nowadays, we see plenty of those who blame the entirely of religion and all of its followers for any attack that they hear about based upon what the media misleads them to believe. Or you may even agree with the media. Either way, you can talk about a personal experience or entirely make one up.
  • Homophobia and Transphobia: Have you recently witnessed a homosexual or a Transgender get humiliated for just being what they are? This can make a great story and a firm statement.
  • First world issues: First world issues are still issues and they can be very annoying. You can use a more satirical style if you think it would suit the topic.
  • Comparison of first world issues with third world issues: If you want to be a little more serious, you can use your knowledge of first world problems to compare them with those of the third world while to depict how it made you feel in a virtual situation.
  • Today’s language and culture: Have you recently been to a renaissance fair where you practiced the rich language of the 16th century, and it made you realize that today’s language and culture is missing out on a lot? If not, you can still imagine you did and talked about it.
  • Video games and violence: The sub-title says it all. I’m sure you wouldn’t have a hard time finding a personal experience that relates to this.
  • Feminism vs. Egalitarianism: Narrate a story about a situation that made you realize egalitarianism is a better movement than feminism or vice versa.
  • The economy: Depict the story of someone you know who is struggling with needs as basic as medical treatment and not being able to afford it.
  • Obesity: Nothing says up-to-date more than good ol’ obesity that seems to be more of a problem now than ever. You can talk about someone suffering this disease.
  • ADD/ADHD: If you suffer this yourself, you can be a great protagonist as well as a narrator.
  • Self-inflicted psychological diseases: Sometimes when a person craves attention, they begin to pretend they suffer things like chronic depression…until they actually have it. This is a very up-to-date issue that you can make up an interesting story about.
  • STDs: This can be a little awkward to discuss, but with the right word choice it can actually end up being a brilliant and touching.
  • What television shows teach us subconsciously: We have all picked up some traits from fictional characters at some point. What’s your story?
  • Teen pregnancy: This is your chance to star in your own sixteen and pregnant!

We hope you have liked our suggestions and found them helpful. You can always pick one of your choices or mix one or two of ours into your own unique topic. Good luck!
