News, Reviews, and Social Media
by Lynn Maudlin
The Call for Papers for Mythcon 49 is now available on the website, both to read online and in PDF form to download.
Papers dealing with the conference theme, On the Shoulders of Giants, are especially encouraged. We also welcome papers focusing on the work and interests of the Inklings (especially J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams), on our Guests of Honor, Robin Ann Reid, scholar, and on other mythopoeic authors and themes. Deadline for paper abstracts is May 1, 2018.

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.
