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]


It’s just an honest mistake. A simple, but probably avoidable foible. And now here we are, just two people, living with this issue I created. What to do, what to do, what to do? What words should I say at a time like this?

Ah, there it is.

Simple words can be so hard to say. But why don’t you just try… for art’s sake.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: I’M SORRY

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 I’M SORRY. 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.

And if you decide not to? Well, then that’s your fucking loss. And you know what else?

Email your responses to by Sunday, September 29th at midnight EST.
