> The Dartmouth 2013 Poet in Residence at The Frost Place
> Applications are now being accepted for the 2013 Dartmouth Poet in
> Residence at The Frost Place in Franconia, NH. This is a six to eight
> week residency in poet Robert Frost’s former farmhouse, which sits on
> a quiet rural road with spectacular views of the White Mountains.
> The residency begins July 1 and ends August 31, 2013, and includes a
> $1,000 award from The Frost Place and $1,000 from Dartmouth College.
> The poet will have several opportunities to give readings across the
> region, including at Dartmouth College, for which the poet will
> receive a $1,000 honorarium.
> The house, built in 1859 and owned by the Frost family from 1915 to
> 1920, is spartan, but comfortable. The Frost Place Museum is open to
> the public during afternoon hours, and a portion of the house is
> closed off for the resident poet.
> Previous recipients of this residency, which began in 1977, include
> Katha Pollitt, Robert Haas, William Matthews, Cleopatra Mathis, Mark
> Halliday, Mary Ruefle, Mark Cox, and Laura Kasischke. Many of these
> poets have returned to The Frost Place to participate in the
> conferences held each summer. The aim of the residency program has
> been to select a poet who is at an artistic and personal crossroads,
> as Frost was when he bought the place in 1915.
> The primary criteria is that applicants must have published at least
> one book of poems.
The complete guidelines and application form can
> be found on our website at www.frostplace.org
Poets may apply
> directly or be nominated by someone else. There is a $25 fee for
> applications. The deadline for submission is midnight, December 31,
