Calls for Poetry for Tales from the Moonlit Path’s Holiday Issue!

Greetings Poets!

I just wanted to remind you all that poetry is a gift that keeps on giving . . . What better way to celebrate the holiday season than composing a poem or two to share with the Tales from the Moonlit Path community – and beyond! There are quite a few holidays coming up – including the new year – so remember to keep it supernatural (and yes, I was scared of Santa Claus as a child and have the photo to prove it!).

Looking forward to reading your submissions! You are all a gift!

Tales from the Moonlit Path’s Halloween 2019 Issue Is Up!

The Halloween Issue is NOW available! Here’s to enjoying haunting (and yes, frightening) tales and poems galore. (Or perhaps I meant to say, “gore” . . .) I’ll be reading for the Holiday poetry section yesterday, so after you’ve been inspired by our current issue, get writing for the next one! Deadline? Of course you need to know when your work may meet its just desserts  . . . You have until the end of October to submit for the Holiday issue.

Until then . . .

Your’s in the shadows . . .

Greetings Haurans and Friends of Boort!

Sozar to all the podlings that submitted drabbles to our first contest! Sozar to their parental units, educators, and friends as well! Acceptance letters will be going out shortly and the winners will be posted in Alban Lake Publishing’s View from the Lake newsletter in October!

Announcing the 15th Alban Lake Publishing Drabble Contest!

Greetings Haurans and Friends of Boort- including podlings!

The 15th contest has now been posted! Remember, too, that Alban Lake Publishing, along with The Boortean Embassy, is dedicated to the universe’s podlings. That said, please encourage the podlings in your life to read, write – and ponder! Our Kids’ Contest is open throughout the summer! What better way to inspire them to engage the universe than participating in our first contest?! We feel confident that Hauran podlings will take us to the stars – and beyond! That said, we also believe that they will dedicate themselves to healing the planet as well as its inhabitants.

Humbly Yours,

Your Boortean Ambassador




Tales From the Moonlit Path Poetry Call for Summer 2019

Attention Poets!

Just a reminder that the call is open for supernatural poetry for the summer issue of Tales From the Moonlit Path! While the theme is open, several poets have already contacted me regarding the “bugs” contest theme. That said, bugs are certainly welcome for the poetry section – but give them the proverbial twist (and yes, Roger Corman is one of my idols, so . . .).

Looking forward to reading your submissions!

Your poetry editor,

Terrie Leigh Relf
