Are genre readers as picky in poetry as they are in prose? For example one of my books is definitively fantasy, except for the second half which is an autobiographical epic poem of my high school years between 2007 and a little beyond to 2013.

But in picking a genre, sense I wasn't sure what readers would focus on, I chose to market it as general poetry.

How do you make the jump from fantasy to epic poem?

If I understand the question correctly, I suppose it's a fair question to ask. A lot of epic poems we know about in our culture if written today would be considered fantasy.

Unless of course you mean how do you switch from prose to poetry. That's a tricker question to answer. At the time I was stuck recovering from a write only poetry slump, and needed a way to ease back into writing prose again.

Prose to poetry was the question.
