The Westwind Poetry Staff loves writing pros. We love to see poets change up their starting lineups. Fresh off the bench, coming in at 5’10”, the twenty-year old shooter out of Charleville, Arthur Rimbaud wrote his best poems in prose. Who doesn’t love the sound of new sneakers sprinting full-court and back again? If you’ve got a problem, don’t hate the poet, hate the game. Even Shakespeare, who got cut from his high school varsity team but went on to be the greatest poet of all time, writing 37 titles and dunking sonnets from the free throw line with ease, yes, even he knew madness knows no bounds. It’s time to get mad poets––step out of line / break the rules. We’re recruiting prose poems for our fantasy team.
Don’t brick, get your prose poems in by April 22nd to be considered for the PROSE POEM CONTEST and win superstardom: your poem on the front page of the Westwind website.
Ya better bring it. Dammit, poet, just do it!
