Who run the world?

Silly Beyoncé. It’s not girls. It’s billionaires!

They own everything. Sports teams. Social media platforms. Politicians. Billionaires are out here doing whatever they want whenever they want simply because they want to. It’s anarchy. It’s oligarchy. It’s oliganarchy!

We know billionaires are great villains and characters. We know they think we’re idiots because we didn’t monetize this website. We decided to write about them anyway.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: BILLIONAIRE

This week, we’re looking for new original pieces, using BILLIONAIRE 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  BILLIONAIRE. 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.
