Outline on How to Write a Narrative Poem

Brainstorm what you want to write about. Decide where you want the setting to be and who the characters are. Try to use a setting that you are familiar with and know a lot about, such as a childhood home, a school, a restaurant, a patch of woods or a specific street. Try also to limit yourself to one or two characters to keep it simpler; characters can be based on yourself or someone you know, or completely fictionalized.
