The Mythopoeic Society is an international organization promoting the study, discussion, and enjoyment of fantastic and mythopoeic literature through books and periodicals, annual conferences, discussion groups, and awards. It sponsors Mythcon.
The Society was born during the first major flurry of interest in J. R. R. Tolkien, the mid-1960s boom encouraged by the publication of U. S. editions of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Many Tolkien societies were founded at that time, but most of them died off during the next few years.
