Our crowd estimate came in at nearly 2000 people over two days who attended the inaugural International Edgar Allan Poe Festival & Awards and made our event a resounding success! Two days of music, food, vendors, artists and booksellers, with performances and programming that took place in the shadow of The Edgar Allan Poe House in Baltimore. It was a wonderful event, and we wish to thank all the attendees, sponsors, and volunteers!

Couldn’t be there? Take a scroll through our photo gallery–this is the first batch of official photos from festival weekend! #PoeFestInternational2018 (Photos Kathryn Dulny,  and Poe Baltimore.)

    At the Tomb of Poe

    He sinks beneath the surface like a stone,
    Sidling crab wise down ‘til buried in mud,
    A gold bug thread wise through vacant skull eye down
    Into maelstroms of stars. Less and less loud, the thud,
    Of shovelfuls above him …. into sidereal time, the tunnel back to light obscured…..
    Buried alive as he thought ! As if to keep him down, the green
    Block from some ancient , obscure disaster – Vermont granite dug ,
    Ripton quarried, dark green, not jadeite green, an intenser, darker green –
    As absinthe, but blacker, still, like “Nevermore” , its dense sheen
    Like shiny hair : black hair, Ligea’s, Virginia’s, Helen’s or Lenore’s.
    Bury the critics alive, I say, Poe careens
    Down corridors of light, more drunk than before!!

    Upon the stone a raven carved, the words blur, but it’s not the end.
    Buried alive in our imaginations , he rises eerily, again! david eberhardt
