15601Stefan's Florilegium files for March
- Apr 5, 2010Greetings to the Gentles of Known World,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for April detailing what is
new in the Florilegium this month.
I am always looking for good articles for the Florilegium. If you have
researched a little known subject in our period or you practice a
little known art or craft, writing an article is an excellent way to
introduce others to the work you've done. I'm especially interested in
academic papers written for A&S contests because, unfortunately, few
have time at such an event to read them. Even the judges. Getting them
published in the Florilegium lets your hard word benefit the entire
Known World. A number of people indicated they would send me articles
or class handouts at Gulf Wars but I have yet to get them. :-(
If you are a newsletter editor and would like to get a copy of this
monthly article for your print newsletter several weeks before I post
it to the mail lists, please contact me. If you publish a newsletter
on the web, I also have a version of this article which includes the
links for each file. If you would like to get on my list for the web
version of this article, please email me.
Please support the Florilegium so I can keep it online by clicking on
any ads that look interesting to you. The amount advertisers are
willing to pay is affected by the number of 'clicks' they get. Each
new ad click seems to add a few more cents to the total.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past twenty years in an ongoing effort, I have been
collecting bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail
lists and articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make
this information available to others, I have placed this information
in a collection of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.
The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org
I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an article
that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send it to me
for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. A&S documentation and class
handouts will also often work out well. I am especially interested in
Advertisements on the site pay for its upkeep. If you enjoy the
Florilegium, please click on an ad or two each time you are there.
