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]

Ever feel like no one has your back?

Like the whole world is set on bringing you down.

Like no matter how hard you try, you just can’t win.

And like the world just won’t stop kicking you while you’re down.

This Week’s Writing Prompt: Me Against the World

We feel you. And we swear, we’re on your team.

We want to hear all about your times of righteous isolation. We want to know what it’s like when you face off against the whole world. We want your submission of 400-700 words using the ME AGAINST THE WORLD writing prompt.

Write us anything that comes to mind when you think of ME AGAINST THE WORLD. It can be a personal essay, a poem, short story, script, or anything else original and fresh. 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.

When you stand alone, The Prompt is with you. Now send us your journal entries and let’s get famous.

Email your responses to by Sunday, December 3rd at midnight EST.
