Inklings Info: Tolkien, Lewis, Williams, and the Rest

I haven’t added a link to the right sidebar in a while, so I wanted to let everyone know about a new project I’m involved with: a free email newsletter dedicated to the Inklings, the celebrated group of Oxford-based writers of the mid-20th century.

I’ve joined forces with some other professors and podcasters, who for the moment will remain anonymous, in planning some online educational initiatives to reconnect people to some of the great figures and works of the Western literary tradition. Since there seems to be a healthy online appetite for J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis, a logical first step in that endeavor was the creation of a website dedicated to promoting their writings and the writings of other members of their literary circle.

We’re in the process of rolling out that website this month, and I invite everyone who enjoys this blog to join the community that’s forming there. The long-term plan is to create a library web-based courses and other resources on these authors and classic works in the Western tradition. Join the party!
