The Inklings: Volume II – CU’s Honors Writing Club
“A pen is to me as a beak is to a hen.” -J.R.R. Tolkien
And so are the stories which channel the dialog of a truth that lays within, a dialog that nourishes the soul as food provides the weak with strength. The Inklings were originally an informal literary discussion group at the University of Oxford between the 1930s and 1940s and hosted many members over the years, including C.S. Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien. In the spirit established by these lofty predecessors, The Inklings: Volume II, or also known as the CU Honors Writing Club, create a community of common interest in exploring and developing their literary abilities as writers. The club meets to workshop each other’s work, to discuss writing in new genres, and to take outings in the Boulder area to enrich their writing experience. The writing club functions more like a lively discussion than a structured club meeting, in a similar manner Warren Lewis described the first Inklings as “neither a club nor a literary society, though it partook of the nature of both.” The Inklings: Volume II meets every other week in Norlin Library. If you would like to join, contact Dr. Olivia Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org. A new journey begins once one picks up their pen and begins to write. And who know, perhaps you will find the dialog that nourishes your soul. Will you write with us?
