A Journey Through Rabindranath Tagore’s Poetry

C.S. Lewis

The Chronicles of Narnia is the most well-known work by CS Lewis (1898–1963), also known by his friends as Jack. He is also well-known for his non-fiction Christian apologetics, which includes Mere Christianity, Miracles, and The Problem of Pain, as well as his other works of fiction, which include The Screwtape Letters and The Space Trilogy.

J.R.R. Tolkien, the creator of The Lord of the Rings, was good friends with Lewis. Both guys were Oxford University English faculty members. Due to the influence of Tolkien and other friends, Lewis renounced his faith throughout his childhood but was eventually converted at the age of 32, becoming an “ordinary layman of the Church of England.” Lewis’s work was greatly influenced by his faith, and his radio broadcasts during the war won him widespread recognition in this age.

Flannery O’Connor

Regine Cline and Edwin Francis O’Connor’s only child, Mary Flannery O’Connor, was born in Savannah, Georgia. She was raised in the South at the beginning of her life, coming from a Catholic home. When Mary was in school, she had a strong interest in writing. After graduating from Peabody High School, she became an editor for the campus magazine at Georgia State campus for Women. She attended the University of Iowa to further her education. She kept her desire in mind during this time. Mary O’Connor participated in some writing seminars. In 1946, while pursuing a master’s degree in fine arts in literature, Mary released “The Geranium,” her debut short tale. The following year, she received her diploma.

Marilynne Robinson

Marilynne Robinson received the 2012 National Humanities Medal from President Barack Obama for “her grace and intelligence in writing.” Her books include Gilead, which won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and the National Book Critics Circle Award, Home, which won the Orange Prize and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize, and Lila, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award. Her debut novel, Housekeeping, won the Hemingway Foundation/PEN Award have the most friction authores. Robinson’s nonfiction titles include The Givenness of Things, When I Was a Child, I Read Books, Absence of Mind, The Death of Adam, and Mother Country.

Beverly Jenkins

Beverly Jenkins is a Romancelandia celebrity, having written over 40 books, including bestsellers like Indigo, Topaz, and the Blessings trilogy. The activity on her several Facebook pages/groups, as well as among her 18K+ Twitter followers, demonstrates this. When I mention that the friendliness and generosity of the participants was rather contrary to the majority of Twitter, Jenkins isn’t surprised.

Jenkins’ accomplishments are undeniable. She has received the Nora Roberts Lifetime Achievement Award, the Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice Award, and a nomination for the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work in Fiction. But her debut novel, Night Song (1994), was not guaranteed. Jenkins, who was content with her job as a librarian, wrote the book for herself—to see characters who looked like her depicted in stories that were not about slavery—which required deviating from the romance publishing industry’s norms. She claimed she received enough rejection letters to “paper my kitchen and yours,” but she persisted.


Writers attempt to improve their work by attending conferences both in person and online. Connecting with other authors in a group context, such as Word Weavers or American Christian Fiction authors, can be beneficial to learning and sharing. Every year, aspiring and experienced authors meet to discuss the writing and editing processes. Ideas are exchanged. These Christian groups provide inspiration, support, and, sometimes, the opportunity to write.
