We are a group from within the Wheaton College Tolkien Society and borrow the journal's name from Tolkien's famous essay "On Fairy-Stories." Humanity was made in the image of a Creator God, and because of this we all have a longing to create. This creation under the auspices of the Creator, i.e. "sub-creation," might come as a painting, a building, or as an entire world created with the written word. This is what we want to encourage within the Wheaton College community: Use your God-given creativity to create with words, mirroring God's creation with the Word; not presuming God's true creative power, but imitating it with humility as children imitating their Father.
