Moon Tide Press is very excited to announce that our forthcoming anthology Dark Ink: A Poetry Anthology Inspired by Horror will be out this October and will feature 66 amazing poets from around the country!
We want to thank everyone who submitted to this project. We got SO many amazing poems; it was difficult to make our selections. We are grateful to everyone who shared their work with us!
This collection is a celebration of the fun and fright for everything that goes bump in the night...we have poetic takes on Frankenstein's monster and his bride, musings on zombies, Lovecraft-ian (is that a word?) love letters, metaphorical monsters (and Munsters), vampiric verses, and much, much more. If you are a fan of poetry or horror or BOTH, this is a book for you!
