To Scribes of the Known World (yes, please forward this):
It is one week until the beginning of Pennsic War and it is with joy and sorrow that I write to you all. Due to personal reasons the possibility is very real that I will be unable to attend Pennsic this year. However, the Known World Scribal Gathering will be held at the Middle Kingdom Royal Encampment on Tuesday the 17th of August from 3pm until 5pm. It is with joy that I tell you my deputies have graciously stepped into my place and will be your hostesses this year, Mistress Ellen of the Scholars from the Middle Kingdom and Lady Kayleigh McWhyte from the East Kingdom.
It is both kind and generous of the Dragon Thrones to allow us to again gather within the confines of Their encampment and I, for one, am certainly grateful. The space they give us every year to gather allows us shade within the shelter of a large tent and offers protection for the artworks we view while we wonder at the talents of those among us.
I highly encourage you all to attend the Known World Scribal Gathering and bring your works in progress, your works completed, your portfolios, your knowledge, and your questions. Please also bring your friends! Each year a small number of people attend who are interested in the scribal arts but who have yet to participate in them. They always go away buzzing about what they will do and how much fun it all seems. One doesnâ€™t need to be an active scribe to attend; one only needs an interest in things scribal, so please do extend this invitation to all who might have interest.
Again, finger-food-style snacks will be provided, as will drinks; but please *bring your own drinking vessel*. The food is usually on a table nowhere near the objects of our meeting â€" the beautiful works of art and amazing collections in portfolios that you all bring each year for us to gaze upon.
Please, bring your works in progress, your works completed, your portfolios, your knowledge, your questions, and those you know to be interested in all things scribal to the Known World Scribal Gathering at Pennsic War, August 17, from 3pm to 5pm within the Middle Kingdom Royal Encampment.
