84 people have already registered for The Glen Workshop.

That’s what Image journal’s publisher Greg Wolfe reported yesterday, when registration finally opened for the public.

So don’t wait! Workshops are filling up fast.

Here’s the tough part. You have to choose. Which workshop or seminar do you want to attend?

  • A songwriting workshop with Over the Rhine,
  • a drawing workshop with the great Barry Moser,
  • a writing workshop with the author of Girl Meets God and Mudhouse SabbathLauren Winner,
  • a poetry workshop with the inspiring Marilyn Nelson,
  • or a week-long marathon of watching and discussing great international cinema with… well… me,
  • or any of these other appealing workshops and seminars

…all in the midst of glorious Santa Fe, New Mexico, at St. John’s College, feasting on my favorite food… don’t wait! I’ll even point you to my favorite restaurants, although you don’t want to miss the experience of dining with your fellow workshoppers and the instructors in the cafeteria on the campus of St. John’s.

You can also choose the “Retreat” option, which means you can relax in Santa Fe, write, read, explore, and yet still attend all of the lectures, the Over the Rhine concert, browse the treasure trove of Eighth Day Books, enjoy meals with the special guests, and so much more.

I used to think it would be a great sacrifice of resources and time to attend the Glen. Then I finally attended one. And I’ve been back every summer since then. This summer will be my sixth Glen Workshop, and I don’t plan to stop anytime soon. It’s become my favorite week of the year: The year splits into “Days of Absorbing Everything I Experienced at The Glen” and “Days of Wild Anticipation of The Next Glen.”

So, read about it here. Then register here!
