Poetry Barn’s mission is to nurture poetry education, inspiration, and appreciation by sponsoring workshops, retreats, readings, and a comprehensive contemporary poetry library freely accessible to the public.

Nestled in the foothills of Catskill Park in Hudson Valley, we are surrounded by the protected lands of the Ashokan Reservoir, part of the New York City watershed.
