What is a Poe Fest?

Poe Fest has been a feature of "Suffering is Hip" and Sepulchritude since 1998 when the section premiered in celebration of Edgar's birthday on January 19 of that year.

We present here stories, poems, art, articles — anything! — in tribute to Poe. We will dance the dance of the Red Death, we will purloin the letter, we will embrace the inevitable Ourang-Outang.
