Poetry Seminar Frequently Asked Questions

At the Seminar

  • What should I pack?

    Evenings get chilly in the White Mountains, even in August! Remember to pack warm clothes for the evening readings. We also recommend bringing a flashlight and bug spray. There are plenty of shops where you can buy these items if necessary.
  • Can I lodge with a roommate?

    Yes. If you are planning to bring someone to stay with you who will not be attending the conference, please notify us. There will be an additional guest fee for food and lodging. If you would like to lodge with another participant, just let us know and we will make arrangements.
  • I have a food restriction or allergy, can that be accommodated?

    Yes. Please notify us of any food restrictions ahead of time and we will advise the kitchen staff accordingly.
  • Are there computers and/or printers available on the campus? Will there be a way for me to polish and edit work from my journal/notebook on a computer on the campus?

    Yes, there are computers and printers available for use in the library on campus.


  • When should I arrive?

    The first day is check-in, registration, and a chance to meet your fellow participants and faculty at a welcome reception and dinner. On the first afternoon and evening we share important information for the week, so we strongly advise that participants arrive by 3:00 pm on Sunday, August 4.
  • Do you have any suggestions of the best way to travel directly to the Frost Place campus from Manchester or Boston?

    There is an “express” bus service from the airports in Boston and Manchester to Littleton and Franconia (towns very close to The White Mountain School where the program accommodations are). From there we can arrange a ride for you to the campus. You can also rent a car in Manchester or Boston. Finally, we may be able to put you in touch with another participant so that you can carpool. Give us a call and we will work on it together. We will be happy to help you with any questions that you might have. Contact The Frost Place office at frost@frostplace.org or (603) 823-5510.
  • I need to extend my stay or have a specific travel need.

    We are happy to help as much as possible with travel arrangements. Contact us by phone at (603) 823-5510 or email at frost@frostplace.org.
