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.
