Prompt Images

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]

Your perspective is unique. No, not in a pandering “special snowflake” kind of way. In a very real sense, in that no one else can have it. No one has your eyes, your frame of reference, your experiences. When you really think about it, your view is pretty freaking special.

So what is the view from here? What is your perspective? What are you looking at, taking in, and seeing? And where’s the story in that? We want to hear from you.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: THE VIEW FROM HERE

This week, we’re looking for new original pieces, using THE VIEW FROM HERE 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 THE VIEW FROM HERE. 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 Saturday September 6th at midnight EDT.
