Summer in The White Mountains. You sit back on Robert Frost’s porch and take in the view as the sun sets, pink and orange among the wrinkles of Mt. Lafayette. In a moment, you will walk through the torches into Robert Frost’s barn and hear amazing poets read their work—a memory to keep you warm later in the winter months.
Come to The Frost Place this summer for a one of a kind experience. Have a discussion in Robert Frost’s barn on how to bring poetry into your classroom at the Conference on Poetry and Teaching, or live and dine with faculty between workshops and classes at the Conference on Poetry and the Poetry Seminar.
Robert Frost said, “It is only a moment here and a moment there that the greatest writer has.”
We’ve experienced those moments here at The Frost Place more than any other place in the world.
