Campus Inklings

 

Each week the Campus Inklings gathers at a pub (the Royal Oak on Laurier), a church or a living room for fellowship and faith filled discussions about shared questions and creative endeavors in the open and rigorous manner of the original Inklings.

“The Inklings were a gathering of [mostly Christian] friends – most of them teachers at or otherwise affiliated with Oxford University, many of them creative writers and lovers of imaginative literature – who met usually on Thursday evenings in C.S. Lewis’s college rooms in Oxford during the 1930s and 1940s for readings and criticism of their own work, and for general conversation. “Properly speaking,” wrote W.H. Lewis, one of their number, the Inklings “was neither a club nor a literary society, though it partook of the nature of both. There were no rules, officers, agendas, or formal elections.” An overlapping group gathered on Tuesday (later Monday) mornings in various Oxford pubs, usually but not always the Eagle and Child, better known as the Bird and Baby, between the 1940s and 1963. These were less formal meetings, and contrary to popular legend the Inklings did not read their manuscripts in the pub.” – From http://www.mythsoc.org/inklings.htm
