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]

We know 2020 hasn’t exactly been the best year. But honestly, we’re tired of wallowing and sulking our way through the summer. So, we’re taking a brief break from the doldrums to bring some good news.

The trick is, we need your help. Because we’ve written our pieces and posts, but it’s not enough. So, do you want to write for us? Please? Because that would be some of the best news we’ve heard all year.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: FINALLY! SOME GOOD NEWS.

This week, we’re looking for new original pieces, usingFINALLY! SOME GOOD NEWS 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 FINALLY! SOME GOOD NEWS. It can be a personal essay, a poem, short story, script, or anything else original and fresh. Ironic or sincere, real or imagined—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.
