Compo(e)sitions Reading

We held the final event in the University of Maine at Farmington’s Poe/After Poe Series today, the reading of the winning stories submitted to the Compo(e)sitions contest. The four readers treated the audience to a creepy and sometimes suspenseful hour of Poe-inspired short fiction. After the reading, Professor Klein presented the winners with their prizes (books of recent Poe-fiction for the runners-up, and In the Shadow of the Master, a collection of Poe stories combined with essays by contemporary writers reflecting on Poe’s writing, for first prize).

First Prize went to Nathaniel Brehmer (Junior, Creative Writing) for “Revelations in the Rue Morgue”

The other winning entries were:
Laura Jennings (Senior, Creative Writing) for “The Immortal”

Ted Gill (Junior, English Education) for “The Ocean of Darkness”


Emma Deans (Junior, Creative Writing) for “Impressions”
