Another submission success

hands typing on typewriter

I am very happy to say my new prose poem ‘Someone I Don’t Know Sideswiped My Car’ has been accepted for publication by literary magazine Quadrant. A huge boost to my confidence as a writer. Fear of the blank page and running out of ideas never leaves me. Am very grateful that I am still producing and publishing new work.

So what is prose poetry?

Wikipedia offers this definition of prose poetry: “Prose poetry is poetry written in prose instead of using verse but preserving poetic qualities such as heightened imagery and emotional effects.”

‘A prose poem falls somewhere in the gray area between a story and a poem. Prose poetry also tends to be very, very short, often (but not always) less than one page. Prose poetry blends the styles of poetry and narrative prose.’ – Writer’s Relief

I love creating stories in this very very short form.

    1. amazing that you remember, Annika. yes, the very famous Australian poet Les Murray was the former literary editor of Quadrant before his death in December 2018. He was my biggest fan. Les Murray had been nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature on two occasions, so a very important supporter of my stories and poems. as you say, the new editor likes my work too. such a relief! xxoo
