The Glen Workshop East, sponsored by Image journal, is an innovative and enriching program combining the best elements of a workshop, an arts festival, and a conference.

The Glen Workshop East is held at Mt. Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts. Daily classes, taught by nationally known authors and artists, offer close attention to artists of all levels. Afternoons and evenings feature readings, lectures, concerts, and worship services incorporating the arts. Like its sponsor, Image, the Glen is grounded in a Christian perspective, but its tone is informal and hospitable to all spiritual wayfarers.

Classes are held concurrently each morning and are small enough to allow faculty to give close attention to each participant. Writing workshops combine general instruction and discussion with the workshop experience--each student's work is read and discussed critically. Visual arts students create new work throughout the week while also receiving individual and general instruction. Seminar classes explore a variety of topics via discussion and in-class creativity. Afternoons and evenings feature readings, lectures, and concerts. Each day concludes with a worship service incorporating the arts. Free time (including a free day) provides all participants opportunities for conversation, reflection, and exploring the nearby attractions (such as Emily Dickinson's nearby home) and beautiful walks through the rolling terrain of the Pioneer Valley. The Glen also offers a retreat option for those who wish to join us for meals, readings, and worship, but prefer to spend mornings creating, exploring, or in contemplation.

See the separate listing for Glen East's sister program, Glen West, for info on our workshops in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

The Glen Workshop

The Glen Workshop, sponsored by Image journal, is an innovative and enriching program combining the best elements of a workshop, an arts festival, and a conference. Daily classes, taught by nationally known authors and artists, offer close attention to artists of all levels. Afternoons and evenings feature readings, lectures, concerts, and worship services incorporating the arts. Like its sponsor, Image, the Glen is grounded in a Christian perspective, but its tone is informal and hospitable to all spiritual wayfarers.

The Glen Workshop has now accrued eighteen years’ worth of rich traditions and friendships, some continuing from the earliest days and some that have just begun in the last few years. Returners and newcomers alike enjoy the rich and rewarding community they find at the Glen.
