Submissions are now being sought for the Fall 2017 issue of The Robert Frost Review. In this issue, in addition to work on all aspects of Robert Frost's life and work (original research, notes, new manuscripts, new readings of poems, and/or memoirs of encounters with the poet), the editors seek reflections and notes on teaching Robert Frost's work at all educational levels. Please see detailed submission guidelines below.

In the latest issue of The Robert Frost Review, No. 26 (Fall 2016 ), Karen L. Kilcup writes on Robert Frost’s “Defining Poetry in the Twilight Interval” and Erin C. Singer addresses “Frost’s Hemispheric Possibilities.” Priscilla Paton reviews Lesley Lee Francis, Glen MacLeod reviews Paul Mariani, and Lisa A. Seale transcribes Robert Frost speaking at Bowdoin College in 1957. George Monteiro offers his recollections of Lawrance Thompson in “Frost’s Biographer in 1967,” as well as a note and poems in “Berryman on Frost”; Owen D. V. Sholes provides a note on “Bleeding Trees” in Frost’s poetry; and R. Mac Jones offers “Representative Frost” in his note on references to Frost’s poetry in Congress. 

Submission Guidelines: The Robert Frost Review welcomes submissions to its pages on all aspects of Robert Frost's life and work. This includes original research, notes, new manuscripts, new readings of poems, memoirs of encounters with the poet, etc. Submissions may be up to 5,000 words and should follow the guidelines of the MLA Handbook (8th edition), but using end notes rather than footnotes. We ask that contributors use the Library of America edition of Robert Frost's Collected Poems, Prose, and Plays (edited by Richard Poirier and Mark Richardson) for all citations.
