Mythcon 2014

Mythcon 45 is the scholarly conference of the Mythopoeic Society at Wheaton College in Norton, MA, happening August 8th-11th. This year’s guests are author Ursula Vernon and Tolkien scholar Richard C. West.

At Mythcon 45 we will discuss the place of fantasy in our culture, our institutions, and our hearts.
