Essay Contest

Poetry, science fiction, literary criticism, children’s literature, apologetics – Lewis’s writings spanned a wide variety of genres. He truly was a man of letters, and writing was one of his great refuges, as was reading. In honor of Lewis’s literary bent, and in order to foster not only the study of Lewis, but also the development of writing skills, The C. S. Lewis Fellowship invites submissions for its inaugural C. S. Lewis essay contest. Essays may focus on any aspect of Lewis’s thought and may take a variety of forms: the traditional essay, imitative pieces, dialogues. The possibilities are as wide as was the range of Lewis’s own writings. The sole requirement is that the submissions engage Lewis’s thought. The first-place winner will receive a cash prize of $500. Second place will receive a $200 cash prize. Entries are due May 15.

Submission guidelines will be coming soon.
