Mythopoeic Society

a non-profit organization devoted to the study of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Charles Williams, the Inklings, and the genres of myth and fantasy


Join the Mythopoeic Society

The Mythopoeic Society is a non-profit international literary and educational organization for the study, discussion, and enjoyment of fantastic and mythic literature, especially the works of Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams. The word “mythopoeic” (myth-oh-PAY-ik or myth-oh-PEE-ic), meaning “mythmaking” or “productive of myth”, aptly describes much of the fictional work of the three authors who were also prominent members of an informal Oxford literary circle (1930s-1950s) known as the Inklings.
