A “prompt” is a writing exercise with a specific theme and a time limit. These small exercises get writers to move away from their comfort zone and try a new genre, voice or character. Inspiration can be drawn from unlikely places and time limits lead to creativity.

JCW members provide the writing prompts on a rotating basis. These prompts can be anything the scheduled writer decides. The only rule is the group just has 10 minutes to write it!
