For a while, Episode has held contests. In these contests, authors must write about an idea Episode chooses. The winner gets to be on a special shelf!
I believe this thread will be helpful because it will help Episode choose an idea that we like.
- Heroes & Villains
- Dirty Dancing
- College Days
- Missed Connections
- Another World
- Star Power
My absolute favourite was the Star Power prompt
I can’t recall all of the contests in my head, but there were also Cupid’s Arrow and Pitch Perfect

I liked Fantastical and Another World a lot.
There are a few missing from the list if you’re going all the way back (e.g Mysterious, Spotlight, Pitch Perfect, Dream Job, Rebounding etc).
I voted for H&V and Another World even though I didn’t enter either. I personally like prompts where there’s a bit of direction (as opposed to vague prompts like “thriller”), but where you still have a lot of flexibility (for both of these, I believe you could write in any genre).
Sorry! It won’t let me edit anymore. For the most part, I just put the contests that had a thread.
Omg yes H&V winning. It’s the best contest of all time, period.
