Welcome to Denver's Mythopoeic Society discussion group. The Mythopoeic Society is a non-profit international literary and educational organization for the study, discussion, and enjoyment of fantasy and mythic literature, especially the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Williams. The word "mythopoeic" (myth-oh-PAY-ik or myth-oh-PEE-ic) means "mythmaking" or "productive of myth". It is a word that fits well the fictional and mythic works of the three authors, who were prominent members of an informal literary circle known as the Inklings, which met in Oxford, England, between the 1930s and 1950s.
The members of Fanuidhol meet once a month to discuss mythopoeic literature. The discussion group is open to anyone with an interest in the Inklings or mythic fantasy in general.
