Write a story that takes place in a department at a publishing company. Maybe it’s the editing department. Or the layout department. Or the executive offices. Maybe it’s about the slush readers or the receptionist. Just be sure to throw in a supernatural, science-fiction, fantasy or horror element.


Write about how someone’s bad day at work turns into something mind-blowingly amazing and life-changing.


Write about someone who goes into work on the weekend to find something really strange taking place at the office. 


Human sacrifices and satanic rituals are a plus. So are Wiccan gatherings.


Write a story about an office that doesn’t do typical “office work.” Make it weird, yo.

Write story about a vampire who works in a corporate office. Nobody knows that he/she is a vampire … until …


Write a story that takes place in hell. The catch? Hell is run like a corporate office, complete with cubicles, cranky HR ladies, water coolers (or water HEATERS! because it’s hell!), copy machines, and fax machines.
