Immerse yourself in an "intensive poetry camp" in the beautiful landscape of Robert Frost's northern New Hampshire homestead.

Immerse yourself in poetry. Spend a week at “intensive poetry camp” with writers who are deeply committed to learning more about the craft of writing poetry. For thirty-plus years, the Conference on Poetry has been a daily immersion in listening, reflection, and conversation about the writing and reading of poetry.

Each day, there is a faculty-led discussion class or talk on an aspect of craft; three hour small-group workshops; a period of silence for reading poetry and time to generate and revise poems. Each night, we gather at the Henry Holt Barn at The Frost Place (Frost’s actual barn) for readings by faculty and guests. Share your work in a special reading at the Henry Holt Barn at The Frost Place. Spend a portion of July writing, revising, reading, learning, and having a wonderful time with other writers. Please join us!

The Frost Place

The Frost Place is poet Robert Frost's farm homestead, now a center for poetry and the arts. Each summer and fall, The Frost Place welcomes visitors to a museum honoring Frost's life and work, grants a summer residency to a promising poet, and offers a series of literary programs.
