Admin HistoryThe Powys Society was founded to promote and encourage the appreciation and enjoyment of the writings of John Cowper, Theodore (T.F.), and Llewelyn Powys. The aims of The Powys Society are to promote a wider general readership and stimulate scholarly study and discussion of the works of the Powys brothers, and to provide a comprehensive and accurate resource on the life and works of the Powyses. The Society attracts enthusiastic general readers and academics from all over the world. It welcomes everyone interested in learning more about this extraordinary family. The Powys family and their friends constitute an unusually wide-ranging spectrum of social, literary and imaginative interests. The founding of the Society between 1967 and 1969 reflected a feeling among Powys admirers and friends that the special quality of the Powyses writings, particularly those of John Cowper, Theodore, and Llewelyn, should be celebrated and made more widely known ‘through promotion of the reading and discussion of their works’. The Society publishes a substantial journal and three newsletters a year, books by and about the Powyses, and is developing a vigorous social media presence. In addition it organises an annual conference, occasional meetings, exhibitions and walks in areas associated with the Powys family. Among the many distinguished speakers who have addressed the Society are G. Wilson Knight, Angus Wilson and Glen Cavaliero. In addition we have heard from George Steiner, John Bayley, Iris Murdoch, Colin Wilson, Iain Sinclair, John Gray, A.N.Wilson, Chris Woodhead and Margaret Drabble.
