Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for April, detailing what
new in the Florilegium this month.
If you are the editor of an SCA newsletter and would like to get a
of this article several weeks in advance so you can meet your
leadtimes, please get in touch with me. I also produce a version of
this article formatted for posting on SCA oriented websites and if
would like that, again just contact me by email.
If you have any comments, suggestions or criticisms about the
Florilegium, please feel free to contact me.
A Blending of the Past and Present
Over the past fourteen 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
this information available to others, I have placed this information
a series 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
that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send it to me
for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. Contact me for more
I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in
me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials,
editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more

Justin forwarded your message to me regarding finding sources for newsletter
articles. It is difficult to find good material, but not impossible. I
encourage the chroniclers in our area to share with each other. If you can
get access to the newsletters of your region or kingdom, you can find a
wealth of material. That said, it is absolutely necessary to ask for and
receive permission to reprint any article - that goes for those found on the
internet. In the Midrealm, we have to have that permission in writing. It's a
pain, but it's there to protect you from litigation. After all, stealing
someone else's scholarship may be period but it's not very chivalrous. :-)
There used to be a source called TAAP (The Ancient Associated Press) run by a
marvelous lady named THL Heirusalem Chrystoma. This was a source of both
articles and artwork on all manner of subjects of interest to the SCA. All
were free for use. I don't know if the material is still available, but it
would be worth a few clicks on Google.
Lastly, you can find all sorts of online newsletters on the internet. Many
have wonderful articles in them. Mostimes you need only ask permission and
then provide a copy of the newsletter in which their article is published.
Hope this helps. Chroniclers, to my mind, are the unsung heroes of the SCA.
The countless hours that you spend are rarely rewarded but are always
appreciated by those who depend on you for their information. Thanks for
serving your group in this capacity. It matters.
