Writing Prompts
Writing prompts are short (usually one sentence or one paragraph) ideas to get a writer motivated. Writing Prompt Contests are challenges to write a story, poem or script based on a writing prompt in a short period of time.

A writing prompt contest is created by a site member. When the contest is created the site will show that a new writing prompt contest is available to join. If you wish to participate you can reserve your spot. You then have a set amount of time to write your submission and submit it as a writing prompt contest entry.

When the deadline is reached a voting booth is created that lasts for one day. Writers on the site vote for the winner. The winner receives the prize pool.

We also offer standard contests with longer deadlines (measured in weeks not hours). To view a listing of these contests click here.
