To the end of the road, up country, a far shore, the edge of things, to a place of amalgamation and unplumbed depths, where the known is made and unmade, and where unimagined futures are born, a place inhabited by contradictions, a place of quirk and startling anomaly, [PANK], no soft pink hands allowed.

Penny Ante Feud

Penny Ante Feud posits a unique proposition for the writer, who writes consciously, out in the open, in full acknowledgement of the audience: we do not know when our words might be our last, if we were about to die, or, in a literary sense, never pen another phrase. Therefore, we ask contributors to send us a single poem to simulate this most desperate and perfect act. The “dying words” tagline is not to be taken literally but purely in the sense that we do not get to choose how, and most of the time when, it will all end. That is to say, please don’t just send a poem about death.

Postcard Poems and Prose

Who are we? Imagine a painter, photographer, novelist, and poet all running willy-nilly and meeting full-speed. That collision is Postcard Poems and Prose. We want you to find prose, poems, and art all in a 4×6 postcard format. We want you to be able to stand and look at that revolving wire rack that’s in every tourist trap on earth. We want you see it from your laptop or handheld device. Just like the postcards of yesteryear, we want you to be able to share that experience with friends. We want it to be quirky and personal. And we want it to be great.

the prompt

As writers and instructors of writing, we have all found ourselves with work that came from workshops, random exercises, and desperate attempts to find our voices. Unfortunately, anything that looks too much like it came from an exercise, prompt, or other such “mechanical” source gets relegated by editors to that pile with a sticky note on top that says “too workshoppy.” That is why we created the prompt. The prompt is the place for all levels of writers to have an opportunity to publish, as well as for a community of writers to find new ways to expand creative writing horizons.
