      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. Application and guidelines can be found at
      thefrostplace.submittable.com. 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, 2012.
    Your message has been successfully submitted and would be delivered to recipients shortly.
