Editors’ Picks: The Best Narratively Stories of 2022
From badass female cookie bakers to a missing persons investigator who went missing herself, don't miss our team's favorite stories from the past year.
2022 was….a year. But like always, the Narratively team found a safe haven in our storytelling. We published dozens of stories, from an epic historical piece by two writers who share a decades-long friendship, to our inaugural Spring Memoir Prize winner, whose moving story is the first piece she’s ever published as an adult. A few of us on the Narratively team are parents, and the old adage says it’s impossible to pick your favorite kid. Well, the same goes for storytelling, and we’re reminded of this every December, when our editors go through a similarly implausible struggle to pick a few of our favorite pieces. Rest assured, though, that each of these stories below are very well worth a read.
