Get your Poe on!

Sacramento Public Library has chosen the stories and poems of early 19th-century American author Edgar Allan Poe for its 2013 One Book Sacramento project - the community's biggest book club!

The Poe Project invites local amateur filmmakers to create short films based on a Poe work or theme, which are no longer than 13 minutes. Or, you may enter the full-length screenwriting competition of an adaptation of Poe's work.

Entries are due in late summer 2013 and cash prizes will be awarded.

A workshop that explains the competition is scheduled for 7 p.m., Tuesday, January 22, at The Art Institute of Sacramento, 2850 Gateway Oaks Drive, Sacramento.

For more information about January 22 workshop, please contact Mary Beth Barber at (916) 429-5105 or Laurie Pederson at (916) 600-6477 or by e-mail at info@capitalfilmarts.com.
