The Frost Place is pleased to announce that Patrick Donnelly, Director of the Frost Place Poetry Seminar, will be the judge for the annual chapbook competition for 2020. Since 2013, The Frost Place and Bull City Press have teamed up to facilitate the annual chapbook competition. The selected winner’s chapbook is published by Bull City Press in the summer following the competition. The winner receives 10 complimentary copies (from a print run of 300), and a $250 prize. The winner also receives a full scholarship to attend the Poetry Seminar at The Frost Place, including room and board (valued at approximately $1,550), and gives a featured reading from the chapbook at the Seminar. Additionally, the chapbook fellow has the option to spend one week living and writing in The Frost Place House-Museum in September (during peak fall foliage season in the White Mountains) at a time agreed upon by the fellow and The Frost Place.
