Our yearly Winter Workshop, for One Year Adventure Novel students 18 and older, is a highlight of the year for many of us on staff. Each workshop has its own unique theme that sets the tone for the week. This year's theme was The Road Through.
By all of us on staff! Happy Thanksgiving! In honor of the holiday, here are "10 Things We're Thankful For," looking back on the past year. Everybody on our team contributed!

Compiled by Staff One Year Adventure Novel students often talk about the Summer Workshop as their "Rivendell" (from The Lord of the Rings)—a place of peace and restoration where the arts are in their rightful place. The Winter Workshop, then, is like Lothlorien, a quieter and more intimate haven of the elves, as a student pointed out this year.
