Poetry Barn sits in the heart of the Hudson Valley, just 20 minutes from Woodstock, and two hours from New York City. Surrounded by the Ashokan Reservoir and the Catskill and Shawungunk mountains, we take nature as our inspiration and act as a pollinator habitat for art. Designed from the ground up for wonder, inquiry, and contemplation, the barn is stocked with a comprehensive independent poetry collection, as well as offering onsite and online workshops, craft talks, readings, and book arts for all ages.
