Up there, past the sky, beyond the stars (but still in the clouds, somehow related to Earth and humanity?) is a place that is impossible to locate or verify. A place for definitively good people. A place called heaven. Wanna check it out?

Exactly how good do you have to be to get in there? Nobody knows.

And what are the criteria for determining who’s good? Depends on whom you ask.

Is there a god? Well, buddy, no matter what you’ve heard, no one knows for sure whether there’s A god or SEVERAL gods or NO god whatsoever. It’s anybody’s best guess. But it sure is fun to think and start wars about, innit?

This Week’s Writing Prompt: HEAVEN

This week, we’re looking for new original pieces, using HEAVEN 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 HEAVEN. 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.

Email your responses to by Friday October 30th at midnight EDT.
