Prose drama is a form of writing that focuses on a natural flow of speech to describe an exciting or unexpected series of events. This type of writing does not follow a metrical structure.

Prose drama focuses on depicting a story in the natural voice of the writer, in order to describe a series of exciting events that occurred. It is different than other types of writing, such as poetry, which requires a specific structure.

Common types of prose include the writing that you would find in nonfictional and fictional writing. It may also be found in heroic prose, commonly shared verbally such as legends and tales. Prose poetry also exists, with an emphasis on bringing through emotion and heighten imagery.
