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]

Is President’s Day a holiday? I don’t know. I guess so? What about under a president you really hate? And, functionally speaking, what’s the difference between ‘celebrating’ and ‘observing’? Isn’t it all just about getting a day off?

Well, reader, you sure ask a lot of questions. Sounds like you should write about them!

This Week’s Writing Prompt: Day Off

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 DAY OFF. 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 Sunday, February 17th at midnight EST.

We can’t wait to hear from you.
