The Mythopoeic Society’s annual conference is usually held at a college or university campus setting in late July or early August. Each conference is constructed around a theme related to Inklings studies and/or fantastic and mythic literature. Each conference also features an author and a scholar guest of honor. Papers, panel discussions, readings, entertainment, an art show, a dealers’ room, and other activities fill the four-day event. Another Mythcon highlight is our annual banquet, after which the Mythopoeic Awards are presented. A small (usually 100-300 people) attendance and intimate setting makes Mythcon an excellent venue for meeting people with common interests.

If you (or your group) are interested in putting on a Mythcon in your area, please contact the Steward for Mythopoeic Conferences, Lynn Maudlin, at for information and help.
