The Frost Place Poetry Programs
Study poetry at Robert Frost’s home in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire.
Come and study poetry in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire. Be inspired by the landscape that inspired Robert Frost and so many other poets after him. Write, read, learn, share, and become part of a tradition and community of writers.
The Conference on Poetry and Teaching is a unique opportunity for teachers to work closely with both their peers and with a team of dedicated poets who have particular expertise in working with teachers at all levels: K-12, graduate and undergraduate, and nontraditional and community-based instructors. Graduate-level credits are available and a certificate of completion for continuing education hours is given at the end of the conference.
The Writing Intensive is a day-and-a-half reading and writing workshop that directly follows the Conference on Poetry and Teaching that gives teachers the opportunity to focus entirely on their own creative growth. A certificate of completion for continuing education credit hours will be given at the end of the workshop.
Spend a week at “intensive poetry camp” with writers who are deeply committed to learning more about the craft of writing poetry. Days are spent in discussions, classes, and workshops in a small-group setting, and evenings are spent at the historic Henry Holt Barn at The Frost Place for readings by faculty and guests, and a special evening reading by participants.
Spend five days with a select community of poets exploring your artistic work in the context of a rich variety of poetic ancestors and contemporaries. Participants will have their poems-in-progress given generous and focused attention in small group discussion groups led by distinguished faculty poets. Days are spent in seminar-style discussions and workshops, and evenings are spent at the historic Henry Holt Barn at The Frost Place for readings by faculty and guests, and a special evening reading by participants.
The Frost Place fall photography contest begins mid-August and runs through the later fall. Visitors are invited to share what they see at The Frost Place, both the museum and the grounds, and submit photographs to a yearly contest. The winner will receive a frameable print of their photograph, a limited run of postcards made from their image, and their work will be used on The Frost Place website and marketing materials, with photo credit given.
