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]

Every so often, it’s important to roll down the windows and hit the open road with a friend or three. There’s something nostalgic and invigorating about cruising from point to point in your car. It’s good for the soul.

As many of us are planning for or reflecting on our summer vacations, we thought it would be a good time to write about road trips. So, now it’s your turn to drive. Might as well hop in, set your playlist, and get ready for a fun ride. We’re excited to see where you take us.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: ROAD TRIP

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 ROAD TRIP. 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.

Email your responses to by Wednesday, July 18 at midnight EST.

We can’t wait to hear what you have to say.
