Are you tired of this planet? Girrrrl, you’re not the only one. And if you can’t really escape the plagues, the politics, the pounding of precipitation, then maybe it’s best to just live in a fantasy world. This week, we’re not writing about the limits of this tiny blue marble. We’re spreading our reach across the universe.

This week, we’re asking our writers to consider deep space. Space, like NASA? Or space, like personal? Either way, we hope it gets you a little outside your comfort zone.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: DEEP SPACE

This week, we’re looking for new original pieces, using DEEP SPACE as our prompt.

If you’ve got an inspired ideas about how to respond to this week’s prompt, send us your submission of 400-700 words. Write us anything that comes to mind when you think of DEEP SPACE. It can be a personal essay, a poem, short story, script, or anything else original and fresh.
