A literary center located in New York's Catskill Park, Poetry Barn offers workshops, readings, retreats, and the largest independent poetry lending library in the region.
Located ten miles from Woodstock and surrounded by the Catskill mountains and Ashokan reservoir, we look to nature for inspiration and act as a pollinator habitat for art.

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.
