June Fiction Prompts from Electric Literature

In case you’re looking for some pulled-from-the-headlines writing inspiration, check out this “June Fiction Prompts” post from Electric Literature! Not only do they share some ridiculous news stories from the month [tell me more about this giant runaway saw blade incident in China!] but they also pair the story to a specific genre, such as “Kitty Body Horror”.

There are 10 news articles total, each associated with a unique genre. I may have to try some of these myself; the “California Animal Apocalypse” parts 1-3 definitely caught my eye! If nothing else, these are very amusing articles but hopefully you can find some writing inspiration, too.

Are you up for the challenge or do you already have plenty of ideas?
