Something on my desk.

Due June 20; Published in July 2014 issue

We’ll share a selection of the best submissions–plus the story that inspired this prompt–in the next issue. Note that your {prompts} submission doesn’t have to include the {prompt} verbatim. Remember: we’re looking for true stories! And, if you are too shy to share, feel free to use this activity as a writing exercise for yourself!

Submit Your Prompt

We suggest writing and editing in a Word document and then coming back to this page to post when your submission is ready.

By submitting your prompt you agree to have your submission, first name and location published in Hippocampus Magazine. We reserve the right to edit submissions. There is no guarantee that we will publish your submission. Due to volume, we cannot respond to individual entries.
