PoeFest is produced by Write Out Loud in partnership with Save Our Heritage Organisation.
 
Artistic Director, Veronica Murphy shared “PoeFest has quickly become a San Diego favorite Halloween adventure. Everybody loves the wonderfully chilling stories of Poe. And there are so many authors to explore that have followed in his footsteps. Virtual is our only option for storytelling now - so we are embracing the challenge of capturing a phantasmic theatrical experience on video. We’ve recreated the atmosphere, filming by candlelight in the Historic Adobe Chapel in Old Town.”
