Sent to me via the KW project group. If you can help in any of these areas, please contact Baron Kainin (Wes Hanna) at the email below.
The Known World Handbook project is nearing the end of the article gathering process
and we need your help. We are in desperate need of authors knowledgeable in the
following core areas to write an article for the Known World Handbook. If you know
of anyone I could contact (name, email and/or phone) that is well versed in these
areas and a good author I would really appreciate the lead or feel free to forward
on this email:

The KWH is targeted to new comers to the SCA with less than 2 years experience, will
be universal with concepts that span all Kingdoms, will contain topics and
information that will last at least 10 years and needs to support existing SCA
documents and handbooks, not try to replace them.
The deadline for the final call for articles is December 1, 2009. Please try to keep
the articles between 800 and 3000 words (one to four 8.5x11 pages). Please submit
them via Microsoft Word files, or in the body of an email to: kwh@... . If you
send in any articles, artwork, or photographs, please fill out the KWH release form
available here: sca.org/docs/pdf/kwhrelease.pdf and email it back to us at

*Notes regarding Brief Kingdom Histories and Specific Kingdom Customs. Seeking 1-2
paragraphs each in length describing what makes your Kingdom unique, what traditions
make up the heart and soul of who your Kingdom is and what transpired to bring your
Kingdom into existence. These should be exciting and enticing stories recounting the
glory of your Kingdom and not just a laundry list of facts. These will likely be
compiled from many different authors.
