Stefan's Florilegium article for June 2012
- Greetings to the Gentlefolk of the SCA,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for June detailing what is
new in the Florilegium this month.
I am always looking for good articles for the Florilegium. If you have
researched something 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. Word
format is the easiest for me to handle, but others are possible.
If you've sent me an article in the past and you still haven't seen it
in the Florilegium, please email me. There are articles that I've had
trouble translating into Word or that for some reason part, usually a
graphic, didn't come through cleanly. And sometimes things simply get
lost in my pile of old email.If you read a good article that you think
should have a larger audience than a local newsletter, please
encourage the author to send it to me.
If you, your household or your local group run a website, please
consider adding a link there to the Florilegium. Not only does this
help people who might be interested in what the Florilegium offers
find the site, but it raises the site in the Google ratings and thus
might bring in more ad money to keep the site going.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past twenty-two 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 called 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 well. I am especially interested in
research papers submitted as A&S entries.
Advertisements on the site pay for its upkeep. If you enjoy the
Florilegium, please click on an ad or two whenever you are there.
