What Are Inklings?

The “inklings” originally were an informal literary circle in Oxford that began in the early 1930s which consisted of C.S. Lewis, JRR Tolkien, Owen Barfield, and Charles Williams. This group met to enjoy the process of reading, thinking, and ultimately encouraging one another in their literary pursuits.

The Inklings will be made up of CSLI Fellows who have completed either one or both of the CSLI Fellow’s program and have a desire to continue to be challenged and encouraged in our desire to grow into “little Christ’s”.

The Inklings Program is a year-long continuation of the Fellows experience designed for participants to re-engage with both the Fellows community and the curriculum.
