Fairly straightforward. Write a short story of your choice. It should be at least one page long (flash fiction is okay as long as it is a minimum of one page). Write down 5 writing prompts for your partner. Cut out 5 writing prompts from newspapers/internet/magazines (it can be headlines, phrases, or pictures). Send them to two partners. Newbies welcome.

You can bind it into a zine or booklet. You can decorate or illustrate it. (but that's not mandatory). Be creative!

My prompt for my partner: That was my picture in the paper ...

This one is a story of your choice. Not writing from a prompt. You just send additional prompts for inspiration. But that's a good prompt. I like it!

Just to be clear: A) We write at least one page of a story of our own choice B) We come up with five writing prompts to our partner C) We cut out pictures or headlines or something else from magazines or other places, which our partner can use as inspiration

Am I correct?
