Mythcon 48 Progress Report Published

The Progress Report for Mythcon 48 is now available as a PDF (download here) and we invite all members of this summer's Mythopoeic Conference and other interested folks to download it. Much of the information has already appeared on the website but this compiles it in one place, including details of housing options, membership rates, current members, Guests of Honor, and a little bit of Mythopoeic Society history - we are celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the Society, after all!

Do come join us in Champaign, Illinois, for Mythcon 48 this summer: July 28-31, 2017. Hope to see you there!

HUZZAH!!! Mythcon 48 Room & Board

The long-awaited room and board packages for Mythcon 48 at the St. John's Catholic Newman Center, University Illinois at Champaign, are now LIVE (and we think you'll like the prices).

There are some interesting choices this year: a single room shares a bathroom with one other person in the "jack & jill" style rooms OR a single room suite shares a bathroom with up to three other people in the "suite style" rooms. There are a very limited number of ADA-compliant singles with their own bathroom.

Double rooms are two beds in a shared bedroom; they come two-bedrooms per double suite for a total of four people sharing one bathroom.

The suites also have shared living/lounging space.

For those who want bigger beds and the amenities of a hotel, we've arranged for a limited number of rooms at the Illini Union, a scant half-mile away - but you'll probably need to walk between locations.

For choices, details, prices and a look a what the room layouts are like, please follow the link to our room & board page.
