April 2023 – Rory’s Story Cubes
April offers a highly flexible and open-to-interpretation prompt based on randomized icons. The protagonist is somehow defined by dice, rainbows, and a flashlight. The plot revolves around time, footprints, and other abstract things.

|PREVIOUS CONTEST PROMPTS|
|Browsing through old writing prompts and contest entries can be useful. It can teach you how to interpret vague prompts and economize your words to fit such small word limits. Plus, it’s just fun to see what other people have cooked up. Maybe you can try interpreting old prompts in your OWN way!|
|“SOMEONE HAS DIED”|
|February 2023 – Someone has died, and the survivors are left to pick up the pieces. Alcoholism, ethnomusicology, and masquerade balls will be involved, and the mighty Poseidon himself appears!

|March 2023 – This month’s prompt centers around time travel agents, odd artifacts from the past and future, and competing agendas that can create branching timelines – and paradoxes! Will they collect live dinosaurs or Marie Antoinette’s birthday cake?
