Earlier Mythcon 51 announcement: Approximately 75% of the programming will be recorded and members of the conference will be able to view sessions they missed. It may also be possible to buy a "retroactive" membership after the fact and thus have viewing access to those papers and panels which were recorded. But it's just not feasible to offer "at the door" memberships for this, our first online virtual event. DO please check back later!
We're not entirely sure how feasible it will be to close with our traditional songs at Closing Ceremonies on Sunday, but you can find the lyrics on our website: SONG LYRICS for Closing Ceremonies
Even earlier Mythcon 51 announcement: Due to ongoing health concerns and the realization that we cannot now plan something that may violate future New Mexico state health and safety regulations, whatever they are in July-August of this year, the Council of Stewards has decided to postpone the next in-person Mythcon until summer of 2022; the date will be July 29-August 1, 2022. Our venue and Guests of Honor have all agreed to this change and the conference theme will remain the same.
Previously purchased conference registrations automatically rolled over to the next in-person conference (Mythcon 52 in 2022) but if you cannot attend next year, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and request a refund of your original Mythcon 51 registration.
The virtual approach will be very different from our usual Mythcons, but what we miss out on we hope to make up for in new and different ways, and we’ll see everyone in person again, once it’s safe to do so. On some level this is a chance to get back to our Mythopoeic Society roots and gather with friends (if virtually!) to just discuss what we love.
