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’s something shiny and new in the neighborhood. A flashy new car in the driveway. A new party house in West Egg. And you’re invited, old sport.

As a culture, we’re always so enchanted by new money. We’ve been trying to keep up with the Joneses and Kardashians and billionaire executives who keep creating their own worlds. Isn’t that just the perfect opportunity to write something special?

I hope you like our nouveau riche vibe.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: NEW MONEY
