Here’s exciting news: There will be a Frost Farm Poetry Conference in 2021! It’ll take place in August, a little later in the summer than usual. I’ll be teaching a workshop called “Common Meter and The Ballad. Other instructors include Deborah Warren, Dan Brown, Caitlin Doyle, and Midge Goldberg. If you’ve never attended this annual gathering in Derry, NH, you owe yourself the experience. If you have joined us before, I don’t need to tell you that it’s something you don’t want to miss.

It’s no small thing to be named poet laureate of the town where Robert Frost made his home, and where so many of the great master’s poems are situated. My good friend Bob Crawford is an excellent choice to receive the honor —and the responsibility— of the title. Kudos and cheers and congratulations—time to light the Guinness Candle!
Never miss a chance to listen to what Rhina has to say. Here she is in conversation with Meghan Chakrabarti of WBUR, talking about translating Robert Frost’s poems into Spanish. You can also listen to her read two of her poems, the wonderful villanelle, “Guidelines,” and perhaps her most anthologized poem, “Bilingual/Bilingue.” (You’ll see a lovely photograph of Rhina, too!)
