One of our favorite jobs here at Write the World is dreaming up weekly writing prompts. These prompts focus on unusual genres and writing samples from around the world. We hope they stretch your craft to new areas of brilliance, and give rise to a voice you didn’t even know you had.

Now it’s your turn. This week, write your own prompt that will spark a response from your peers. We’ll select our favorites and run them as weekly prompts in the coming months. 

Please double check that your prompt falls within the site's Writing Guidelines, and be sure to include the following:
  • A title for your prompt ("Writing Synapses" is the title for this prompt)  
  • A tagline (“Design your own writing prompt” is the tagline for this one)
  • The genre of writing ("Prompt" is the genre for this one)
