        The 2012 Frost Farm Prize
        Metrical Poetry Contest Announced
        December 7, 2011, DERRY, NH -- The Trustees of the Robert Frost Farm in Derry, NH, and the Hyla Brook Poets invite submissions for its 2nd Annual The Frost Farm Prize for metrical poetry. The winner will walk away with $1,000 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 2012.
        The inaugural winner in 2011 was Sharon Fish Mooney of Coshocton Ohio for her blank verse poem, “Dimly Burning Wicks.” 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 by creating The Frost Farm Prize,” said Robert W. Crawford, co-founder of the Hyla Brook Poets and a Frost Farm Trustee.
