Here is what some of his critics, peers and clients had to say:
“Glenn treats the words that make it into print like an inheritance, like objects that are being passed down. And I believe he wants, more than anything, for those words to be good—to be worthy—and for them to continue to be good. I don’t know anyone who’s done more to seek out and highlight bright new talent.” -Chris Jones, formerly Writer-at-Large, Esquire, and National Magazine Award winner
“Conversations with Glenn Stout rival any writing workshop in the country.” – Howard Bryant, ESPN, author of The Last Hero: A Life of Henry Aaron, and National Magazine Award finalist in commentary
“The most supportive, kind and talented editor I’ve ever worked with. ” – Ashley Harrell, Livingston Award Finalist in International Reporting
“Let’s begin with this assertion: Glenn Stout can flat-out write. I mean, if you’re looking for someone who can consistently put one word after another to form interesting sentences, and one sentence after another to make thought-provoking paragraphs, and one paragraph after another to construct stimulating chapters, Stout’s name has got to be on your short list. But more than this, Stout writes passionate, arresting prose. He thinks, he cajoles, he massages the evidence in ways that are different and unexpected. He brings his readers up short, forcing them to look at the past through his fresh set of eyes. What more could any reader want than to be treated with this sort of respect?” -Steven Gietschier, NINE.
“Glenn Stout was my coach, partner, counsel, interpreter, editor, co-writer and friend. He made order out of hundreds of pages of thought, narratives and letters. He interviewed me for many hours in order to help me fill in the places I had omitted or forgotten or, in some cases, was unwilling to face.” -Dr. John Parrish, author of Autopsy of War
