How to Join

Membership of The Folklore Society is via a subscription to our journal Folklore, published by Taylor & Francis/Informa, in 4 issues per year.

Our subscription year runs from January to December, and renewal notices are sent around November/December for the following year.  New Members: If you’re joining late in the year, you can opt to have your payment logged as an advance subscription and defer your membership until the following January: just contact us and we can arrange that.

Our individual members receive the print issues of Folklore as well as access to the digital form via tandfonline.com

Our members also receive our newsletter FLS News three times a year (February, June and November).  New Members: contact us to receive the recent newsletters: the default is now digital, pdf via email, but members can opt to receive print copies of FLS News–just let us know.
