You can read all about Prose Poetry on their site as defined by Eve Jones, “A prose poem intends to be a poem in its attention to language, but does not employ the use of line like regular poetry. It resembles prose, and in fact, it is cousin to short prose such as flash fiction and the lyric essay.”
