Writing Through the Wardrobe



Author and professor Jonathan Rogers of Grammar for Writers teaches high school students how to improve their own creative writing by examining the literary elements of Narnia.


Writing through the Wardrobe is a video-based self-study, made with the assumption that attentive readers can improve their own creative writing. Join Jonathan Rogers on a journey into the literary elements of Narnia. Admire the description, dialogue, concision and pacing of the classic The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

Dr. Rogers has written The Wilderking Trilogy, The World According to Narnia, and other books.
