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.

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
