Frost Place

The Frost Place, Dartmouth Poet in Residence, PO Box 74, Franconia, NH 03580. (603) 823-5510.  A 6 to 8 week residency for one poet at a time in Robert Frost’s former farmhouse, on a quiet north-country lane with a spectacular view of the White Mountains. The residency begins July 1 and ends August 31 and includes a cash award. 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.  Poet is expected to give public readings at Dartmouth and other regional venues. “The aim of this program is to select a poet who is at an artistic and personal crossroads, comparable to that faced by Robert Frost when he moved to Franconia in 1915, when he was not yet known to a broad public.”  Must have published at least one full-length book of poems to be eligible.
