Prompt Takeover

Welcome to the prompt takeover page! Here you will find instruction on taking over our weekly songwriting prompts.

The most important thing is that a songwriting prompt goes out at the crack of dawn every Monday morning (Central Time, US).

This activity is one of our community rituals. Maintaining consistency communicates stability and a gentle structure for songwriters to hang on to.

Will your prompts be one-off?
Will they be collaborative?
Will there be some sort of progression?

Feel free to borrow ideas from other writing prompts out there. I encourage creativity.


You are responsible for creating a songwriting prompt for each Monday of the month. Your start date should be in the email I sent you.

1. Watch the video on how to create a prompt.

2. Join the Test Environment to see what it looks like before going live.

3. Consider scheduling your prompt so it goes out first thing Monday morning (Central Time, US).

4. Be sure to mark each post as "featured," so it shows up in the featured section. But please "un-feature" the previous week so we keep the section tidy. FYI, this function is not accessible in the app. You will need to be logged in through your web browser.
