Now Closed to Submissions

The Contest will be judged shortly…



    Yesterday’s Prompt:



Ever feel like a good idea or positive thought slips your memory? is interested in your daily stream of consciousness. Whether it’s the first thing you think of when you wake up, or your last coherent sentence before you go to bed, a brief 250 word monologue could make you a winner.

Here’s how it works:

1.) Visit every weekday morning to learn the day’s prompt word or phrase.

2.) Contemplate your monologue.

(ADVICE: Let your mind wander! We want to be surprised and so should you. There’s no telling where the word “Socks” or the phrase “The posters in my apartment” may take you by the end of 250 words.)

3.) Submit via submittable. $2.50 per entry (proceeds determine cash prizes) 

4.)  If you miss a prompt, don’t worry, a list of past prompts is below.

5.)Tell your friends!

The contest will begin Thursday, July 18, and conclude Sunday, September 29. That means over 50 different prompts will be issued. Write a weekly piece, write every day! Submissions are unlimited and will be judged by monologging editors, Jeffrey F. Barken and Menachem Kaiser  For more information about the game, monologue, the contest judges, and to read transcripts of the game played in person, click here!
