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]

For those of you who have been following The Prompt since we first started, alllll the way back in 2016, you may have noticed that things got a little quiet in these past few months. You might have wondered whether we were calling it quits, hanging it up, or retiring. But, nah. We’re still here. Still jamming. Still writing.

We just took a little time out. Paused for a minute. Took an opportunity to stop, regroup, and reset. Because everyone needs a deep breath every once in a while. But, it’s been too long. We’ve missed you. Missed this. Missed each other.

Now, we back baby!

This Week’s Writing Prompt: RESET

This week, we’re looking for new original pieces, using a RESET as your story’s setting.

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 RESET. 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.

Email your responses to by Sunday June 9th at midnight ET.
