An engaging and authoritative introduction to an increasingly important and popular literary genre Prose Poetry is the first book of its kind—an engaging and authoritative introduction to the history, development, and features of English-language prose poetry, an increasingly important and popular literary form that is still too little understood and appreciated. Poets and scholars Paul Hetherington and Cassandra Atherton introduce prose poetry’s key characteristics, chart its evolution from the nineteenth century to the present, and discuss many historical and contemporary prose poems that both demonstrate their great diversity around the Anglophone world and show why they represent some of today’s most inventive writing. A prose poem looks like prose but reads like poetry: it lacks the line breaks of other poetic forms but employs poetic techniques, such as internal rhyme, repetition, and compression. Prose Poetry explains how this form opens new spaces for writers to create riveting works that reshape the resources of prose while redefining the poetic. Discussing prose poetry’ s precursors, including William Wordsworth and Walt Whitman, and prose poets such as Charles Simic, Russell Edson, Lydia Davis, and Claudia Rankine, the book pays equal attention to male and female prose poets, documenting women’s essential but frequently unacknowledged contributions to the genre. Revealing how prose poetry tests boundaries and challenges conventions to open up new imaginative vistas, this is an essential book for all readers, students, teachers, and writers of prose poetry.

August Norman returns with the second thrilling Caitlin Bergman novel, perfect for fans of Julia Keller, Tess Gerritsen, and Michael Koryta. Caitlin went in search of her mother...but what she found may set the world on fire. Caitlin Bergman's mother is dead. That's what the award-winning journalist has told everyone for the past forty years. Easier to lie than explain how Maya abandoned her only daughter before dropping off the map forever. But when a rural sheriff invites Caitlin to the woods of coastal Oregon to identify her mother's remains, Caitlin drops everything to face the woman she's spent a lifetime hating. Unfortunately, the body--abandoned on the land of a reclusive cult, the Daughters of God--was left faceless. Instead, Caitlin finds the diary of a woman obsessed with the end of the world, one that hints the cult's spiritual leader knows the identity of Caitlin's real father. She's not the only one looking for clues in her mother's writing. Johnny Larsen, a violent white supremacist whose family runs the county, thinks the Daughters of God kidnapped his teen-aged daughter--and will do anything to get her back. At the top of a hill, an army of women wait for the end of days. In the town below, the Larsens plot to purify their county. Caught in the middle, Caitlin must decide which is more important--learning the truth about her past, or saving Mama Maya's chosen daughters from the end of the world.

And now we’ve gotten to the heart of the matter in what we’re calling the Four Core Framework: A core need satisfied or denied through the change of a core value in a core event that elicits a core emotion. In this collection of twelve original works of fiction—one for each of our twelve story genres—we showcase the core events that make an audience gasp, sigh, or cry when they experience the emotional release they seek. This anthology was written and edited by intrepid members of our Story Grid community inspired by the core events of masterworks in each genre.

The author of Tides delivers “fierce battles and passionate personal struggles . . . a rewarding escape into a very creative and fully imagined world” (HillRag). Being Chosen by the Gods doesn’t mean much when They have abandoned you. Jordan was raised to save his people from the coming war. All his life he has trained to eliminate the rebel army of demigods and demons foretold to turn the middle realm of Terath to dust. Now, the final battle has arrived. But everything that made Jordan special is stripped away—his prophetic ability to hear the Gods, his leadership over his people, and even his faith. As the rebels send a new threat—the most powerful wizard of all the ages—to destroy Jordan and the people of Haven, he has never felt more lost. So, when the golem who served as Jordan’s only friend and childhood protector disappears, Jordan ventures to solve at least one problem in his dark, broken world, even if it means breaking into the Gods’ home and hunting Them down. No matter the cost, he’ll bring back a soul for his friend . . . or die trying. “The finale delivers on everything the series has been building up to. It is dramatic, oddly sad, and gloriously beautiful . . . I do hope for more prequels, more sequels, more chances to adventure in this vibrant world and walk with these characters, who after this powerful journey, have become closer than family.” —Readers Lane “With each book, Wenstrom gives us more and more depth to her world and characters.” —Danielle DeVor, author of The Marker Chronicles

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton is a transformative work of art. From its initial performance in 2015, this daring interpretation of the life of orphan, hero, and scholar Alexander Hamilton profoundly changed musical theater—and the audiences who watched and listened. Revolution was the subject and the goal. In Hamilton by Lin-Manuel Miranda: A Story Grid Masterworks Analysis Guide, writer, editor, and educator Abigail K. Perry shows us that Miranda’s skills as a storyteller are equal to his gifts as a composer. We see how he brilliantly weaves together story genres, including a complex Love Story, a bloody War Story, a Performance Story, and a Society Story about a world turned upside down—all within the overarching Status tale of a hero’s tragic rise and fall. Join Perry in reading Miranda’s work on multiple levels using Story Grid’s toolkit, and you’ll find yourself understanding how he constructed his masterwork, almost as if you were in the room where it happened. And you’ll gain a deeper appreciation, love, and respect for the craft of writing itself. Open the Guide and discover again why it matters who lives, who dies, and who tells your story.

The second book in Alexis Daria's Dance Off series finds one playboy charmer falling for his new roommate. Natasha Díaz is having a day. She’s trying to prove she can make it as a professional dancer, but she’s overworked, out of cash, and her roommate has just moved out. When she comes home to find a hole in her ceiling and her bedroom flooded, she’s desperate enough to crash with the one guy she can’t quit. She accepts his offer with one condition: no sleeping together while she’s living with him. Dimitri Kovalenko has never lived with a woman before. But when Tasha’s in need of a place to stay, he suggests she move in without a second thought. He accepts her condition, hoping she won’t stick to it. They’re good together, both in the ballroom and the bedroom. Since their first dance, she’s never been far from his thoughts. Sure, she’s a pro and he’s one of her show’s judges, but they’re not currently filming, so no one needs to know. Living in close quarters shows Dimitri a side of Natasha he’s never seen before, and he likes it. A lot. Too bad she’s doing everything in her power to keep him at arm’s length. When an injury forces Natasha to take it easy or risk her ability to dance, it’s his chance to show her that the rules have changed, and she can trust him with her heart.
