They are currently looking for messages written to Mother Earth in the future, with a maximum of 100 words.

This is such a cool story telling concept! I would love to see the wide variety of letters and how they compare and contrast each other!
The writing prompt seems unique and intriguing to read and write about. Especially how climate change is a prominent issue currently.
With the climate crisis happening throughout our world, this seems like a very compelling prompt that is more relevant than ever. It would be interesting to see the various responses from writers, and to see if they are more negative or positive about the outlook of the earth.
I think this is a great prompt! I am excited to see what people come up with for their short story and am even thinking about writing my own to the prompt.
This sounds like such an amazing exhibit when it will all be finished. The climate change crisis is something that is very serious and has many texts written about it. There is even a whole green called Climate fiction that has become increasingly popular over the years. This sounds like a very intriguing prompt that is very relevant to the day and age that we are in.
This is an intriguing prompt—I’ll definitely have to submit to this one, and can’t wait to read the selected responses when they come out! There feels like so much potential for an honest, emotionally-gouging message to Earth and about humanity. What could we say that makes up for some of our actions? I have a soft spot for climate change and Earth-related content, so this is really cool!
It is an intriguing prompt! The submissions will also be displayed, which is so much more interactive than choosing only some of the submissions.
