Creator Fact 👤

C.S. Lewis was a British writer, theologian, and professor. He is best known for writing The Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters, and Mere Christianity.

Lewis maintained a tight community of writers near Oxford university. The group was called The Inklings which included Lord of The Rings author J.R.R. Tolkien among many other skilled writers.

They would meet in a local pub called The Eagle and Child on a consistent basis to discuss their writing. The group became a support system as they wrote their greatest works.
