Dartmouth Poet in Residence at The Frost Place
The Frost Place in Franconia, New Hampshire, invites applications for a six-to-eight-week residency in poet Robert Frost’s former farmhouse, which sits on a quiet north-country lane with a spectacular view of the White Mountains, and which serves as a museum and conference center. The residency begins July 1 and ends August 15, and includes an award of $1,000 from The Frost Place and an award of $1,000 from Dartmouth College. The recipient will have an opportunity to give a series of public readings across the region, including at Dartmouth College. Accommodations are spartan but comfortable. The Frost Place Museum is open to the public during afternoon hours, but the resident poet has sole use of non-public rooms of the house.
