Call For Papers:

In addition to a keynote speech, awards presentations, cosplay, vendors, and festive fellowship, the Pacific Inklings Festival would like to offer its attendees a few select talks by noteworthy Inklings scholars. Therefore, we invite submission of proposals for 5-page papers on the following topics. Please bear in mind that the selection process will be rigorous, as only a few papers will be chosen.

Suggested topics:

  • The Inklings Among Other Moderns: How were Lewis, Tolkien, Williams, Barfield et al engaged in literary dialogue with their “modernist” contemporaries?
  • Bright Drops of Spilled Religion: The Inklings and Romanticism. In what ways did these writers reinvent Romanticism for their own age?
  • Inklings in the Digital Age. How are the works of these writers continuing to survive and thrive as they are adapted into the age of the internet, VR, video games, film franchises, and choose-your-own-adventure TV series?

Please send your proposal to by Feb. 14th, 2019.

Invitation to Vendors:

If you would like to sell your Inklings-related books, art, music, merchandise, etc., at the Pacific Inklings Festival, please contact to make arrangements.
