Recently, Professor Paul Hetherington (UC, and associate of CHRG) and I signed an advance contract from Princeton University Press to write the definitive book on prose poetry. Princeton University Press has been ranked as one of the top 10 international publishers, and we are thrilled to be publishing with them.
While literary awards have conferred status on the prose poem and legitimized it as a significant genre, scholarship on the prose poem has not proliferated at the same rate. Of the books that have been published on this genre, many are anthologies of prose poetry. Our book will fill the gap in current scholarship on prose poetry by providing a comprehensive and detailed study of the prose poem: the first of its kind.
