Prose and Rhyme No. 8 Winter 2013

Dear Reader,

Welcome back to Prose and Rhyme.  If you are new to the site, our purpose is to discover and publish poets and writers.  Our site has been up and running for  18 months now.  We are proud to showcase new poets and writers.   We hope that if you see a poem or short story that you enjoy, you will tell others about it. Comments that relate to the published works are always welcome and published so the authors and other readers can read them.  But we do not publish the comments of people trying to sell something, or promote their business. Our focus is fairly narrow. We want to publish poets and writers so their works can be enjoyed by others, and they can share their works with others. We do our best to publish works of the highest quality, remain true to the author’s voice, and still be contemporary.

We hope you will become the next great writer or poet. Getting published is tough.  When I was at Augusta State University, I was able to be one of the editors for Sand Hills Literary Magazine my senior year. One of the most important things I learned was how extremely subjective art really is. One person will love a work, another will hate it, and someone else will not care about the work at all.  The purpose of all art is probably to make a connection with the audience. The  purpose of this site is to give readers the opportunity to read new poets and writers, and to give new poets and writers the opportunity to connect with new readers. Our mission is to help you on your way. Before I go, I want to give a “shout out”  to the following poets and writers  we have published. Many thanks to:
