Prompt Queens is the songwriting podcast where every episode hosts Hope Dunbar & Emily Dunbar pick a prompt, write a new song to the prompt, play it, and discuss the songwriting and creative process.  We also invite you to play along.  We want to get you writing.  Pick one of the prompts, write, and send us your song.  Once we've got a sampling of songs, we'll incorporate them into an episode.
