Mythopoeic Literature Society

The Mythopoeic Literature Society of Australia, was a Tolkien society and mythical literature society in Australia. This society was presumably an Australian counterpart of the US based Mythopoeic Society.

[edit] History

As of 2011 only scattered references to this society can be found.[1] It is therefore assumed that this society is now defunct. This society appears to have been active from the mid 1980s through the early 1990s.
