Click here for The Mythopoeic Society WEBPAGE
The Mythopoeic Society is a non-profit international literary and educational
organization devoted to the study, discussion, and enjoyment of the works
of the Inklings: J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis,
and Charles Williams, and to the study and appreciation of the realm of
myth and the genres of fantasy. The word "mythopoeic" means "mythmaking"
or "productive of myths." It is a word that fits well the fictional
and mythic works of the three authors, who were prominent members of a informal
literary circle known as the Inklings, which met in Oxford, England, between
the 1930s and the 1950s.
The Mythopoeic Society was founded in 1967 by Glen H. GoodKnight. In 1970 it held the first annual Mythopoeic Conference. The Mythopoeic Fantasy and Scholarship Awards were first given in 1971. Today, Society members and Discussion or Special Interest Groups can be found scattered across the United States, and around the world. There are three Society publications: the monthly bulletin, Mythprint, the quarterly journal of Inklings and Fantasy studies, Mythlore, and the tri-quarterly creative writing workshop-in-print, Mythic Circle.
Members of The Mythopoeic Society include scholars, writers, and readers of mythic and fantasy literature, scattered across the United States and around the world. Membership in the Society is $5 per year, which entitles the member to subscribe to the magazines at member's rates, along with voting rights and the annual report:
Mythprint: $12.00 per year (actually, 12 issues)
Mythlore: $15 per year (actually, 4 issues)
The Mythic Circle: $13 per year (actually, 3 issues)
higher rates apply for non-members of the Mythopoeic Society.

Caution: Note that Mythprint rates have changed significantly
since this order form was generated. I hope to upload a new form soon. --ddl
