Frost Farm Kitchen

Frost Farm Kitchen

Your Time at the Frost Farm

After a welcoming reception Friday evening on the grounds of the Frost Farm, followed by the Hyla Brook Series poetry reading in the Frost barn, you'll settle down to business with two days of focused workshopping with a leading poet of metrical form. 

You may find yourself composing form in Robert Frost’s kitchen or gathering inspiration during your free writing time as you explore the grounds and trails around this National Historic Landmark.
