Reedsy Prompt: Close to Home

web site

Deadline: April 24, 2020, 11:59 PM EST
A few weeks ago, our 'Staying Inside'-themed contest received quite a big response from the Reedsy Prompts community. Because this is clearly a relatable theme for so many these days, we've decided to run a second edition of prompts that all revolve around being at home.

But that's not the only popular writing activity we're bringing back: today, we're hosting another LIVE Write-In on YouTube at 3pm Eastern Time! Once again, our hosts Shaelin and Jenn will guide you through a series of 20-minute writing sprints. During the breaks, you can share your progress and ask our hosts any questions you may have.

To join, tune in to our YouTube channel at 3pm EST. We hope to see you there!
  • Write a story about someone who finds a magical portal in their home.
  • Write a story about someone who is working from home and constantly getting distracted by their pet.
  • Write a story about two neighbors talking from their yards, windows, balconies, etc.
  • Write a story about someone learning how to play an instrument.
  • Write a story about someone posting a video on social media that goes viral.

Reedsy challenges you to create a short story based on these prompts. Winners will be featured on Reedsy Prompts and receive $50 via PayPal! In order to have your story considered, it is important you follow the submission guidelines.
