About

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 about ten miles from Woodstock, and surrounded by the Catskill mountains and Ashokan reservoir, we take nature as our inspiration and act as a pollinator habitat for art.
