Greetings unto the Known World,

For decades the Known World Handbook (KWH) has been a must-have resource for any newcomer to the SCA. The last update to this quintessential publication occurred over 14 years ago. Over the next year or so, the SCA will be revamping this critical handbook from the ground up. The goal is to release a new KWH for sale through the SCA's online Stock Clerk by the first quarter of 2010.

We are looking for anything and everything a newcomer to the SCA could be interested in. If you have an idea for an article, send it on in. There is no limit to new and fresh ideas. For a list of sample topics visit the website.

Try to keep the articles between 800 and 3000 words, and please submit them via Word files or in the body copy of an email to Authors of existing articles in the KWH are invited to refresh, renew, and update their prior KWH articles. If you send in any article, artwork or photograph, please fill out the KWH release form available online.
