Young Poets: The Frost Place, Franconia, NH

Attention all those who want to make sure young poets get the door or window to climb through into writing MORE. Show them this information. In fact, give them a scholarship and send them with your blessing!

MARCH 30 is the application deadline for young poets (grades 8-12) for this spring's Frost Place workshop. Details:

3rd Annual Young Poets Conference
April 27-29, 2007

A chance to be immersed in poetry for a weekend in a historic New Hampshire inn, with time for writing, revision, workshops, readings, and games, and with a field trip to the nearby Frost Place, featuring faculty poets Eloise Bruce, Geof Hewitt and Elizabeth Powell.

Tuition: $275 for students or teachers, includes meals and lodging. $75 day-rate for teachers attending just Saturday (includes lunch).

Eloise Bruce is famous around The Frost Place for her sense of humor and dramatic flair; Geof Hewitt is Vermont's king of slam poetry. I don't know Elizabeth Powell yet, but I like the bit on the FP web site.
