Writing Through the Wardrobe

Writing through the Wardrobe is creative writing from the inside out. Author and professor Jonathan Rogers of Grammar for Writers dives into the structure and ornament of one of Christendom’s most beloved modern tales in a series of lectures loaded with practical applications for the budding writer.

Coming in December


Writing through the Wardrobe is a video-based self-study in creative writing, made with the assumption that attentive readers can become good writers. Join Jonathan Rogers on a journey into 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.
