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 your writing a hot, delicious dish? It sure smells like it. And boy, we’d really love a taste. So, maybe we could all sit down and break bread together. Or, maybe you could just write for us? Because that’s really what this invitation is all about.

Make sure you show up to this potluck of creative writing.
