Please submit your three-to-five poems to tlrelf@gmail.com within the body of the email. Remember to read the issue’s theme, as I adhere to that as well. I receive so many wonderful poems that aren’t in keeping with our theme . . . Here’s how to format your subject line: Your last name/Moonlit Path Poetry-submission/Poem titles. Looking forward to reading your work!

  • Following your brief note to YT, include no more (and no less) than three to five poems at a time. While we prefer unpublished work, reprints are fine as long as you indicate this in your email and credit the prior publication.
  • Please include a short bio of approximately 100 to 150 words. While we do care about your accolades and the organizations to which you belong, we’d rather that you share something unique about yourself.
  • Send your poems within the body of an email to tlrelf@gmail.com. Your subject line should read something like this one: Tales from the Moonlit Path Poetry Submission/Last Name/”Poem Title 1;” “Poem Title 2;” and “Poem Title 3.”
  • Response times will vary depending on the number of submissions received. Thank you for your patience! If it’s been over a month since you’ve heard from me, however, please send a polite nudge.

Looking forward to your submissions!

Yours in the Darkness,

Terrie Leigh Relf
