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]

Sometimes life is easier if you just go with the flow.

And that’s what’s so delightful about putting on your swim suit, grabbing a tube, and hopping into the lazy river. It’s not quite a water ride. It’s more like a—moving sidewalk? moving swimtrack? Whatever. You get the point. A lazy river is a good place to relax, stay cool, and float on.

And that’s why it’s this week’s writing prompt.

This week’s prompt: Lazy River.

If you, unlike the aforementioned lazy river, are feeling motivated to join our community of creative dipshits here on the internet, we’re accepting submissions for our LAZY RIVER prompt. You can write anything you want using LAZY RIVER as your catalyst: a personal essay, a satirical piece, a poem, a script, a short story. Just write a 400-700 word original piece and if it’s good, we’ll publish it and invite you join the crew.

Email your responses to by Sunday November 4th at midnight EST.
