Writers, readers, and all those in between.

We are looking to gather a range of short story and flash fiction or general writing prompts which we’d like to begin publishing daily in 2019.

If you have something in mind, please do send us your favourite prompts. It can be a word, a phrase, a line, a title, an idea, an image. Whatever you want.

Send your prompt in the body of the email or in a word/JPEG attachment – to prompts@theshortstory.co.uk

A maximum of three prompts per person, please. All prompts can be sent in a single email.

We’ll attribute the prompt, add links to any of your social media accounts, plus any full length work (novel, non0fiction book, flash/short story collection).

We will be accepting prompts until the end of December.

Thank you!
