A WRITING PROMPT FROM CAITLIN HORROCKS

Each Friday we post one new writing prompt created by a Sarabande author. Prompts like this one are included in our online Reader's Guides along with discussion questions and suggested reading to accompany each title. So if you can't wait a week for the next prompt, visit our Reader's Guide page to find them all in one place!

This week's prompt comes from Caitlin Horrocks, author of This Is Not Your City.

HAPPY ENDING

The assignment I gave myself when I began the story “World Champion Cow of the Insane”: write a story with a happy ending. It’s harder than it should be.
