English major Adam Restad won the “Bad Poe” parody-contest sponsored by SymPOEsium. Well done, Adam! Adam’s also the editor of Crosscurrents, which will soon be looking for poems, stories, and other work from students for its Spring 2009 issue.

Adam’s entry (and other entries) in the Bad Poe Contest will soon appear on the SymPOEsium website, along with an archive of lectures, images, and other material:

More lectures and panels occur today (Friday), the last day of the symposium. Hearty congratulations to Professors Alison Tracy Hale, Tiffany Aldrich MacBain, and Mita Mahato, as well as many other organizers and presenters, on creating such a great week-long event. A special word of thanks to President Thomas for taking time out of his impossibly busy schedule to lecture on Poe and detective fiction.
