Onsite and Online Workshops
Signature seasonal retreats in a beautiful location with peer poets and master teaching artists.
We sponsor themed-readings benefiting local charities.
Originating in 2007 as a group of far-flung friends who exchanged critiques online, Poetry Barn began offering online workshops to the public in 2011.
In 2015, we transformed into a state-of-the-art literary center located in New York's Hudson Valley.
