Residency: Frost Place

Applications Requested for 2011 Resident Poet - Frost Place, Franconia, NH 
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 1st and ends August 31st, 
and includes an award of $1,000. 
The Resident Poet will have an opportunity to give a series of public 
readings across the region, including at Dartmouth College, for 
which the Resident Poet will receive a $1,000 honorarium, and at 
the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum. There are no other 
specific obligations. 
Accommodations are spartan but comfortable. The Frost Place Museum 
is open to the public during afternoon hours, but the resident poet 
will have sole use of non-public rooms of the house. 
To be eligible, applicants will have published at least one book of poems.
Applications will be judged by members of The Frost Place Board of Trustees. 
Please visit the website for application guidelines.
