Unto the populace of the Known World does the editor of Cockatrice send greetings!
For those of you who are unaware of Cockatrice, allow me to illuminate you. Cockatrice is Lochac's Arts and Sciences magazine. It is published four times a year, and contains 10 - 15 articles written by members of the populace, as well as poetry, artwork and Guild information.
The purpose of Cockatrice is to provide readers with information about period arts and sciences. Now that's a broad range of activities and may cover topics like cooking, period clothing, games and music. But these are just a few of the myriad of topics that exist within the society (as I'm sure you are all aware).
Recently, the editorship of Cockatrice changed, and with it the address where articles and subscriptions should be sent. One unfortunate result of this is that subscriber numbers and submissions of articles are down. Without more articles I will be unable to publish the next edition of the magazine, as it will only be about 10 pages long (instead of the usual 50). Likewise, without more subscribers it will become difficult to maintain the impetus needed to keep me doing my job :)
To this end, I write to encourage all SCA folk to consider writing for, or subscribing to, Cockatrice. The only real requirement for articles is that they be researched so as to provide an accurate picture of whatever it is you are writing about. For more information, or to submit an article, please drop me a line - firstname.lastname@example.org . If you would like to subscribe, four issues (one year) will cost $28 (Australian Dollars), and these will usually be posted to you, or distributed at Crown events, should I be able to attend.
Cheques or money orders for $28 payable to 'Caitlin Macpherson', as well as your name and the address you would like your copies posted to may be sent to:
(please email me and I'll send you my postal address)
Thank you for your attention. I look forward to hearing from many of you soon!
