In celebration of National Poetry Month in April, and Robert Frost (1874-1963), The Studios is delighted to host the Annual Children and Teen Poetry Contest each year. National Poetry Month is a worldwide celebration that highlights poetry’s vital place in our culture. The Florida Keys have a special connection with Robert Frost, who won four Pulitzer Prizes for his poetry, and wintered many years at the garden cottage of the Heritage House in Key West.
