Call for Submissions: Poetry and Photographs

Are you a photographer or poet? Bearings Magazine is soliciting poems and black and white photographs for the upcoming Fall 2016 issue on spirituality. Please submit your work of art via email to Betsy Johnson-Miller.

Welcome to our 2016 Summer Workers!

One thing that continually comes up in our workshop evaluations is the care and attention that Collegeville Institute staff provide our guests. From a well-stocked fridge in the Butler Center to clean and comfortable apartments, our workshops could not run without the hard work and cheerful spirits contributed by our summer workers. Below we’d like to introduce you to our 2016 summer workers—Hannah, Elise, Anja, Chris, and Joe. Be sure to greet them in person when you’re next in Collegeville! Read their bios »
