2017 Conference Logo

The New York Tolkien Conference is an annual conference celebrating the work of J.R.R Tolkien and the Inklings. We had a wonderful inaugural 1st Conference in 2015 with Guests of Honor Janet Brennan Croft and John DiBartolo.   Our 2016 event welcomed Jared Lobdell and Kristine Larsen as Guests of Honor.  We cannot thank everyone enough for their support, attendance and wonderful comments about the first 2 Conferences.

For 2017 we are working on something very special to celebrate the 80th Anniversary of The Hobbit, and the 40th Anniversary of The Silmarillion.

The Conference is sponsored by Myth Ink Books, an Independent Press that is owned and operated by Conference Organizers/Authors Jessica Burke and Anthony Burdge.

  1. I am interested in learning more of your Society activities.

    I am a member of the New York and Los Angeles Wagner Societies.

    I study and give talks on Richard Wagner’s Ring.

    I would like to explore the commonality and differences with the Hobbit and LOTR.

    I believe it would be good to have workshops, talks exploring this.

    If you would like to know more of my activities please go to my website

    I live in Los Angeles.

    • Greetings! Thank you for your message, we have met members of the NY Wagner Society and are interested in the exploration between Wagner & Tolkien’s Ring. Will check out your website and email you privately. Perhaps we can do something jointly. Cheers! Anthony Burdge
