Richard Platt

Essayist, novelist, and playwright, Richard Platt is the author of As One Devil to Another, A Fiendish Correspondence in the Tradition of C. S. Lewis’ The Screwtape Letters, acclaimed by the world’s foremost Lewis scholar as “a stunning achievement which reads as if C. S. Lewis himself had written it,” and which has been adapted for the stage. He is currently at work on a new play, For Art’s Sake, pitting Oscar Wilde against G. K. Chesterton in a battle of wits over the purpose of art, the moral responsibility of the artist, and the ultimate wellspring of all artistic creation. Richard believes that it is the mission of the arts to engage, entertain, edify, uplift, and ennoble; to enrich our minds with a vision of positive transformation in ourselves and in our world, and to place in our hearts the will to effect that change.
