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


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 Secretary for Mythopoeic Conferences, Lynn Maudlin, at for information and help.
