Conference goers ranged widely in experience. Some of our guests were just starting as writers or joined us from college or MFA programs. But there were also quite a few participants who are already published poets. It was an impressive group of people to see immersed in their passion for study on campus.
At an end-of-the-week reception at Dickey House (the Head of School’s home), there were rave reviews about all aspects of the week from teaching and critiquing, to housing and meals. The Frost Place Conference on Poetry provides participants with a unique opportunity to live alongside faculty members, to share meals with them, to go to evening readings with them and to spend time with them outside of class- a true reflection of everyday life in a close-knit boarding school community.
Thank you to everyone who contributed to this great week of poetry! We look forward to welcoming The Frost Place back to campus this August for their Poetry Seminar. Learn more here.
