The Trinity Forum, along with co-hosts The Rabbit Room and the C.S. Lewis Foundation, welcomes award-winning author and Azusa Pacific University professor Diana Pavlac Glyer, PhD, to share about the creative process, particularly the way that creativity thrives within small groups and clusters. Glyer will discuss the importance of collaboration and the necessity of friendship to the creative process. This conversation, especially timely during the ongoing season of social distancing, will challenge participants to think imaginatively about how to cultivate generative and culture-shaping friendships and community.

Post-event discussion groups will continue the dialog enabling participants to more deeply engage with the ideas presented in the online conversation with other viewers.


Glyer, professor in APU’s Honors College, is an award-winning writer who has spent more than 40 years combing through archives and studying old manuscripts. She is a leading expert on C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien and her works The Company They Keep: C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien as Writers in Community and Bandersnatch: C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, and the Creative Collaboration of the Inklings explore the way in which the friendship and fellowship of the Inklings shaped their work, life, and thought. She has received numerous awards, including the Paul F. Ford Award for Excellence in Lewis Studies; The Mythopoeic Society Scholarship Award; The Chase Sawtell Inspirational Teaching Award; and a nomination for a Hugo Award.
