Come gather with other teachers of writing and learn how to effectively teach poetry in the classroom.

The Conference on Poetry and Teaching is a unique opportunity for teachers to work closely with both their peers and with a team of illustrious poets who have particular expertise in working with teachers at all levels: K–12, graduate and undergraduate, and nontraditional and community-based instructors. Over the course of 4½ days, faculty poets share specific, hands-on techniques for teaching poetry. The emphasis is on the reading-conversation-writing-revision cycle, and our teaching approach aligns with the Common Core anchor standards for reading and writing. Graduate-level credits are available and a certificate of completion includes 33 hours of continuing education credit.

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.
