In a nutshell: Guests can contact the Ritz-Carlton call center at 1-800-241-3333 and state that they are coming to The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta (Downtown), for Mythcon July 2018 and provide the agent with their requested dates of stay; the agent will identify your group rate of $159.00; you can also reserve online (visit the Mythcon 49 page for instructions).

Announcements ListWe encourage all members of the Mythopoeic Society to join the Mythopoeic Announcements Yahoo Group, known in short as “mythann”; it is the official Mythopoeic Society announcement list. There is no discussion or interaction, just information sent to the list via email — and there are very few emails per year. It is the fastest way for us to get the word out to Society members but you must sign up for it to work.
Social MediaMany Mythopoeic Society members are active on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, a MythSoc Yahoo Group, and the Society has a presence on these social media sites; we invite you to "like" us or "follow" us or, in the case of the Facebook MythSoc group, ask to join - but please remember, being a part of the general-interest group on Facebook doesn't make you a member of the Mythopoeic Society - you must join the Society in order to actually be a member of the Society!
You can also connect with many of your fellow mythies via Goodreads, for instance, the Mythcon 43 Reading Group, or see some Mythopoeic photos in the MythSoc group on Flickr.
You can also help the Society fund its activities, including the “Starving Scholars Fund”, formally the Glen GoodKnight Memorial Scholarship Fund, when you shop at Amazon, by following a link from our website.
