Silver Leaves Issue 2: The Inklings

Silver Leaves Issue 2: The Inklings

Issue2_500_1024x1024“A year has passed since our debut issue of Silver Leaves was released. The journal team has grown in various ways, both individually and collectively, through joys and challenges alike, yet our goal for this journal remains the same: to honour Tolkien’s life and writings and, particular to this issue, the works and lives of the strong and beloved group of Oxford-related friends known as the Inklings … As the copies of Silver Leaves Issue Two get sent out to many places across the globe, may the blessing of Illúvatar—and Aslan—be upon each one.” ~ Jo-Anna Dueck, Journal Administrator.

“This issue of Silver Leaves has, once again, surpassed our hopes and dreams. I think the spirit of the Inklings has infused the pages with a unique magic that makes this issue very special. My deepest thanks to all our contributors for their time and generosity. Your incredible work and words fill up a part of me that is always longing to know more about these men, to discuss and investigate their works. I know I will love to sit and read this journal, with a lovely up of tea beside me, for many years to come.” ~ Lara Sookoo, Editor in Chief.
