Chad Chisholm (27 July 1978) is a teacher of English at Rust College (Holly Springs, Mississippi). He has written several articles on J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and the Inklings. Much of his present scholarship springs from John Poulakos's theory of rhetorical possibility, and Chisholm is currently finishing a book on C.S. Lewis that explains children's literature through a language of possibility.
