Mythcon

(Did you mean the British convention?)

Mythcon, the Mythopoeic Conference is a convention devoted to Mythopoeic literature run annually by the Mythopoeic Society since 1970. The convention is usually held on a university or college campus, and usually includes meals and lodging. It's probably best thought of as a cross between and academic conference and an sf convention.
