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]

Do you enjoy traveling? We’re up in the air about it. But if you are going to travel, you might as well pack your laptop so you can sign up for airlines’ loyalty reward programs AND draft up your first or next Prompt writing.

As always, we’re looking for new work, new voices, and new writers to contribute to The Prompt. And if you have ideas, pack ’em up and let’s get to the airport!

Get your tickets out and scan the code into the machine. We’re boarding and you won’t want to miss your chance to take-off as a writer.
