Prole promotes accessible literature of high quality. Anything that we publish will be intelligent, engaging and impact the reader in a variety of ways. We want to appeal to a wide audience and reconnect a broad readership with excellent examples of poetry and short prose. Anything that sniffs of literary elitism is highly unlikely to make it through the editorial process. If it does, it’s only because we won’t have noticed and the piece has other areas of merit. Obscure references and highly stylised structures and forms that exist only to aggrandise the writer and appeal to the coffee lounges of our older universities are not welcome.
Remember, at Prole, it’s the reader who comes first. Anything that is accepted for publication will be considered to be: intelligent, engaging and likely to impact the reader in a variety of ways.
We are open to all forms of poetry whether it be structured or free, rhymed or blank, light or serious; we consider content and quality over form. Patience Strong inspired verse is discouraged. Individual poems are accepted, but we would prefer to see a small collection of up to five pieces. If you are submitting more than three poems, please limit the number of lines to sixty per poem. If you wish to submit longer poems, please limit yourself to a maximum of three pieces.
