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]

Would you like to speak to the manager? Tired of being bossed around by your underlings, children, or housing association vice president? Well, have we got the writing prompt for you this week.

Because we’re looking to sort out who’s the big cheese. We want to know who’s the top banana. We want to know who’s calling the shots and making the decisions.
