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]

There are so many days, so many moments that are unforgettable. For good or bad, we simply cannot imagine all the sights, sounds, and feelings that created those indelible memories. No matter how much time has passed, they are alive and active, as if they happened just yesterday, or as if we can still experience them if we just close our eyes.

This week, we’re reviving those moments and memories we simply cannot shake. And we’d love to read your unique story and take.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: I KNOW WHERE I WAS WHEN

This week, we’re looking for new original pieces, using I REMEMBER WHERE I WAS WHEN 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  I KNOW WHERE I WAS WHEN. 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.
