“Gutsy wisdom permeates these pages. Prose & Lore brings together a keen array of lived experiences and authentic voices.” – Amber Dawn, author of How Poetry Saved My Life: A Hustler’s Memoir
“This [journal], simply by virtue of existing, is part of a larger project to counteract the stereotypes and stigma that works to threaten those in the sex industries.” – Jessie Nicole, Tits & Sass
“[The stories] that comprise this journal are straightforward without a lot of literary tropes or tricks yet their harsh and sticky realities pull readers in. A testament to Red Umbrella’s workshops, from which most of these works hail, they’re entertaining and edifying, even enlightening, at times. They are not by any means self-pitying stories but come from perspectives that are often humorous, seductive, pissed, confused, and psycho-sexually indignant.” – The Review Review
