Ward Teaching

In addition to my work at Oxford, at HBU, and my various projects as a writer, I frequently give talks to schools, colleges, universities, churches, conferences, and literary societies.  I've spoken and preached all round the world on Planet Narnia, C.S. Lewis, The Inklings, and theological imagination.  If you'd like to investigate the possibility of my speaking to your group, please be in contact.
