Here's a barebones template to start from:

<$navigator story="PE:story" history="PE:history">
<$list filter="[list[PE:story]]" template="$:/core/ui/ViewTemplate" 
emptyMessage={{$:/config/EmptyStoryMessage}} />

 You can create custom templates to replace $:/core/ui/EditTemplate and 
$:/core/ui/EditTemplate with simpler templates with the required 
For example the view template could be as simple as:

{{||move-up button}} {{||move-down button}}
<div><$view field=title /></div>
<$transclude />

 The move-up and down buttons would allow you to move paragraphs or 
sections up and down.
