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]

When will you find the time to write? I don’t know. Better check your calendar. Because now that you’ve turned the page to January, it’s a #NewYearNewYou. And in this calendar year, you promised you’d make more time for yourself. More time to do the things you want to do. More time for your creativity. More time to write.

Well, you sure have come to the right place.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: Calendar

If you’ve got some inspired ideas about this week’s prompt, send us your submission of 400-700 words. Write us anything that comes to mind when you think of CALENDAR. It can be a personal essay, a poem, short story, script, or anything else original and fresh. Just make it worth our while and we’ll publish it, include it in our newsletter, and give you the chance to join the creative, talented staff writers here at The Prompt.

Email your responses to by Monday, January 21st at midnight EST.

We can’t wait to hear from you.
