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]

Are you feeling a little wrathful? Are you feeling like you want to take out some of your frustration on someone who did you wrong? JOIN THE CLUB, BUDDY. This week, it’s your opportunity to get into it. Show your teeth a little bit.

Revenge is a dish best served cold. Or scalding hot. But the bottom line is, you better take this opportunity to serve it up. The people are waiting.

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