The 2013 Frost Farm Prize
Metrical Poetry Contest Open for Entries
December 26, 2012, DERRY, NH -- The Trustees of the Robert Frost Farm in Derry, NH, and the Hyla Brook Poets invite submissions for their 3rd Annual The Frost Farm Prize for metrical poetry. The winner will walk away with $1,000, publication in Evansville Review and an invitation, with honorarium, to read as part of The Hyla Brook Reading Series at the Robert Frost Farm in Derry in the summer of 2013. This year’s judge is prize-winning poet and translator Catherine Tufariello.
Last year’s winner was Richard Meyer of Mankato, Minnesota, for his poem, "Fieldstone." The poem will appear in the 2012 edition of The Evansville Review.
“The writing of metrical verse – the use of rhyme and/or meter – is a precise and challenging craft and we want to celebrate this art form with The Frost Farm Prize,” said Robert W. Crawford, co-founder of the Hyla Brook Poets and a Frost Farm Trustee.
