Absolutely! Creativity takes all forms. If you like one of the prompts—or even one of the stories—feel free to write a story or create a piece of art around it. The story you write and the personal experience you bring to it will be different from what anyone else will bring to it.
You can share snippets and works in progress with us through the podcast contact page. It’s a big help if you provide the prompt or episode number with your submission. Make sure to include written permission to share it on the podcast, if desired, otherwise we’ll just privately coo at it. (Even with permission, not all submissions will be read on the podcast, but we’ll confirm receipt for all work shared with us.)
If you write a complete story, publish it, and want to credit us for your inspiration, please credit the podcast Story Kernels—and then let us know, so we can share your story with others!
