Prole is a magazine publishing prose and poetry, where the aim is that all submissions are high quality and accessible.
I have to confess I rather enjoy the statement on their website, “Anything that sniffs of literary elitism is highly unlikely to make it through the editorial process […] Obscure references and highly stylised structures and forms that exist only to aggrandise the writer and appeal to the coffee lounges of our older universities are not welcome.”
And what I particularly like about Prole is they have used one of my images for the cover of Issue 3.
It seems they found me via our favourite Resident Alien, Mary, and after a few email exchanges we decided to go for a closely cropped, black and white version of my photo “Michelle”, which originally appeared in my Staring Back exhibition last May.
You can buy printed copies or PDF downloads of Prole.
And if you take out a subscription they like you very much.
