Glen Workshop East!

Image Journal is launching an East Coast version of its popular Glen Workshop, to take place at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts, June 12-19, 2011.

Image Journal is a quarterly journal of faith and the arts published in Seattle (and associated with SPU, with their Master of Fine Arts program). The Glen Workshop is a Christian artists and writers workshop that they run (in conjunction with CIVA, Christians in the Visual Arts) for a week every August in Santa Fe, on the campus of St. John’s College (one of those “Great Books” schools). They have workshops in all variety of arts (visual and literary arts, music , drama, film, etc.) plus a lot of great networking among artists of faith, worship together, open mike night, open slide night, concerts, public lectures, etc. It's been running for at least 20 years.

Jeffrey Overstreet posted this comment on Facebook towards the end of a very rich experience at this year's Glen Workshop in Santa Fe: "Good heavens. Over the Rhine pulled out new songs tonight that nearly set the place on fire. One of them was a new song they'd never played live before. And I learned that the new album's title song was inspired by a B.H. Fairchild poem... and Fairchild was here to read the poem. The Glen Workshop is magic."
