Hope you had a poetic Valentine’s Day!
Just wanted to point out the exciting list of programs The Frost Place has to offer this summer! These include the Conference on Poetry and Teaching (June 24-28), the Festival and Conference on Poetry (July 15-21) and the Advanced Seminar (August 8-13).
Baron Wormser will serve as the director for the Conference on Poetry and Teaching in June. If you haven’t already, please enjoy Baron Wormser’s poem in the previous post.
Additional information on program directors and faculty will be posted over the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned!
