About us

The importance of George MacDonald’s work and influence is increasingly being rediscovered and the George MacDonald Society works to further this interest. Formed in 1981, the Society publishes annually a respected academic journal, North Wind which carries articles related to his life and work, reviews of new books, and other publications relevant to MacDonald Studies. An occasional newsletter, Orts is also produced to provide news of events, meetings, lectures and any other information of interest to our members.

The aims of the Society are two fold:

  • To encourage academic and artistic interest and discussion of George MacDonald.

  • Cater for the growing general interest in George MacDonald and his works.

We believe that a strong online presence is key to achieving these goals and we have members in the United Kingdom, Canada and USA, Italy, Germany, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and even further afield. Truly an international community. Membership is open to all and it is now possible to subscribe via Paypal, which minimises any currency issues.
