When the idea to start a weekly newsletter with writing inspiration first came to us, we decided that we wanted to do more than provide people with topics to write about.
We wanted to try and help authors form a regular writing habit and also give them a place to proudly display their work.
Comedy — whether satire or slapstick, this is an opportunity to write with your funny bone.
Dramatic — if you want to make people laugh and cry within the same story, this might be your genre.
So we started the weekly Reedsy Writing Prompts Contest.
Mckinsey Problem Solving - Fun Creative Writing Prompts
Here's how our contest works: every Friday, we send out a newsletter containing five story prompts.

What does the world as we know it look like when it faces certain doom? It keeps getting hotter, and things are also getting weirder. Take a trip to the thrift store, or think about your latest trip.
Imagine that you are a character from a classic tale pitching your memoir to a literary agent. Write your query letter, story synopsis, or elevator pitch to the agent.
It's free and there are no rules other than to write for 30 minutes. Currently, Carlton helps businesses share their stories through social media and blogging.
