Among the technological platforms that can be used to teach English story writing is Telegram. The purpose of this research was to learn how students felt about using telegrams to learn narrative writing skills during the Covid-19 pandemic.  Thirty 11th graders at one school in Central Java participated in this study as respondents. The instrument used in this research was a questionnaire. This research found that using Telegram as a technology medium facilitated narrative writing amongst the 11th graders. The students studying English as a second language through narrative writing could potentially benefit from Telegram's many capabilities. Finally, they concluded that Telegram was the best technological medium to learn narrative writing during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
