Its a bit late, seeing as how our submissions are closing in about a month, but here are our current Contest Prompts!
Prose: Develop a story in which a character has an out-of-body experience. For this prompt, the experience can be interpreted in a number of ways: physically, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, or possibly even a combination of these. In other words, convey some kind of detachment or disassociation from "reality".
Poetry: Write a poem about extinction. Whether you want to explore this as a concept, a fact of reality, or even as an experience is entirely left up to you as a poet. Write about extinction, whatever this may mean to you.
Drama: Write a scene in which a character makes an extreme assumption based on very little information he or she as received.

William S. Burroughs had what is known as "The Bunker," a place of reflection into the depths of the humanity. What's your creative space like? Do you like to work in darkness? Do you like to have a view of the the world outside or do you prefer to be isolated?
Set in William S. Burrough's New York City apartment, the Bunker, this experimental film mixes images
and audio of the nuclear holocaust from Hiroshima, Burroughs, and real confessions.
