Prowlings is a journal of microfiction & poetry - works of less than one hundred words, works which, as Blake would say, hold the world in a grain of sand and eternity in an hour.
What makes Prowlings different from other blogs of microfiction out there - some of them producing and curating beautiful work - is that it is not a blog, but a physical journal designed to be read on paper, because we adore the printed word. Each issue is the size of an A4 page, and can be downloaded, printed off, folded, and enjoyed.
