The Glen Workshop combines the best elements of a craft workshop, arts festival, and spiritual retreat. Held this year in Seattle, the Glen offers community, challenge, and encouragement for writers, visual artists, art-lovers, and spiritual wayfarers who want to grow in their craft, wrestle with questions of art and faith, and connect with others who share their passions.

Every attendee at the Glen Workshop has access to:

  • An immersive morning class. You’ll choose one class for the week, participating in 5 weekday sessions that meet from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Morning classes are kept small, so you develop close ties and dive deep into your subject. For many attendees, their immersive morning cohort is the heart of the Glen. (If you prefer having mornings free to write, paint, hike, rest, or explore, choose the retreat option instead. New this year: a retreat guide to help you develop a plan for your work if you so desire.)
  • Weekday afternoon and evening sessions, including readings, interviews, craft talks, and more from our illustrious faculty, open mic sessions to share your work, morning chapel, and free time for rest, connection, or local excursions. These p.m. sessions are enjoyed with the entire Glen community, allowing you to mingle with friends attending other morning classes.
  • Experience the gorgeous Pacific Northwest summer. The Glen is held just outside downtown Seattle on an intimate college campus. Whether you're an outdoor-loving writer craving quiet and peace, or an active extrovert seeking the benefits of an urban location, there's something for everyone!
  • Optional housing and meal plans.

All-Access Pass (all-day programming) | $1450
