Each week, we issue a writing prompt to our own staff, guest contributors, and readers like you. We welcome guest submissions, so if you’re interested in being featured or regularly contributing to the site, email your responses to kelaine.conochan [at]

I can see it in your eyes, you’re going to love this prompt. It’s so good you can smell it. It feels so good, it tingles. Do you hear what I’m saying, buddy? This prompt tastes like victory.

You’ve got five senses, and you’re going to use them ALL for this prompt. It’s going to be a crazy, sensory overload. So get ready.

This week’s prompt: The 5 Senses.

Want to be part of this community of creative dipshits? Well great news, because all you have to do is submit a piece to this week’s THE 5 SENSES prompt. You can write anything you want using THE 5 SENSES as your catalyst: a personal essay, a satirical piece, a poem, a script, a short story. Just write a 400-700 word original post and if it’s good, we’ll publish it and invite you join the crew.

Email your responses to by Sunday November 17th at midnight EST.
