About The Store

Kaile H. Glick is an aspiring librarian, infamous woman of letters, and all-around stand-up guy. As the Proprietor of The Spontaneous Prose Store she has dispensed her custom made prose-poetry to innumerable pedestrians and party-goers around the world. Every piece of prose is built according to the customer’s unique specifications — before their very eyes. The result comes type-written on a handy, stick-able sticker.

Ms. Glick’s poems have appeared in Forum, 16th & Mission Review, Broken Pencil Magazine and Made in Shoreditch. She has been interviewed on CBC radio and Bill Bradley’s American Voices on Sirius XM Radio.

She recently published the Spontaneous Prose Anthology Vol. 1 (Holy Mess! Press), a collection of illustrated prose. She is currently working on the second Anthology, an account of her misadventures as a poet for hire.

    Hi Kaile

    I was in Edinburgh this year and bumped into your store and you write a gorgeous piece of prose for me and my boyfriend about the coast:

    When you can see the sea suddenly
    you can breathe better again all
    those great breaking waves crashing
    at a small distance spray leaping
    and you and me walking along
    thinking expansively cozy thoughts
    about anything.

    It was so nice I would love it if you could write me another piece. Your prosed up FedEx label is pride of place in a frame and I would love another piece to accompany it!

    Please get in touch it would be fantastic to hear from you.

    Many thanks,
