THE RAVEN'S TALE Teaching Guide

Amulet Books just released an incredible teaching guide for The Raven's Tale!

If you teach Poe and/or Gothic literature units during the Halloween season—or if at any point in the school year you'd like to teach a novel about Edgar Allan Poe's life at the age of 17—please download the free guide (available in PDF format). It's packed with entertaining activities and assignments that explore Poe's life, poetry, Gothic lit, history, and creativity.

Huge thanks to high school English teacher Sarah Mulhern Gross of The Reading Zone for creating this guide!

Download The Raven's Tale Teaching Guide as a PDF.

I'm now booking school visits for the 2019-20 school year. If you're interested in having me come in to your school or library for a talk or writing workshops, please see my Author Visits page.


“This well-researched and darkly entertaining tale serves as an excellent introduction to Poe and his classic works.”
Publishers Weekly

“Brooding, macabre, romantic, and surprisingly whimsical . . . a must-read for Poe fans and Poe newcomers alike.”
Kendare Blake#1 New York Times bestselling author of the Three Dark Crowns series

“Several of Poe's most well-known works enhance the narrative, complemented by the author's own finely crafted writing that flows with gorgeous, Poe-inspired phrases . . .”
Kirkus Reviews

“Winters’s smart, silvery, slithering prose finds beauty in the grotesque—and what is art if not that?”
Daniel Kraus, co-author of the New York Times bestseller The Shape of Water

Seventeen-year-old Edgar Poe counts down the days until he can escape his foster family—the wealthy Allans of Richmond, Virginia. He hungers for his upcoming life as a student at a prestigious new university, almost as much as he longs to marry his beloved Elmira Royster. However, on the brink of his departure, all his plans go awry when a macabre muse steps out of the shadows with one request: "Let them see me!"
