Special Places in the Life of Edgar Allan Poe—Master of the Macabre

‘Tis the season to be spooky, and what better way to do that than diving into all things Edgar Allan Poe. The Poe Museum located in Richmond, Virginia, provides teachers with informative facts to enhance any lesson plan, a Poe timeline, and adaptable lesson plans designed for middle school and high school classrooms, including “The Black Cat,” “Masque of the Red Death,” and “The Bells.”

Plus: Poe Baltimore, located in Baltimore, Maryland, offers a virtual tour of Poe’s house every Friday with online docents. Students are also invited to participate in the new Poe Baltimore flash fiction and poetry series by creating their own pieces inspired by the real or imagined loves of Edgar Allan Poe. They can choose characters from Poe’s works or historical figures from Poe’s life for inspiration in their original flash fiction or poetry. A winning entry from each category will be selected each month through December 2020 and published in the Poe Baltimore newsletter. Winners receive a $5 honorarium, as well as the chance to be published in a collected anthology of works in the series.
