Submission Guidelines

Submitting to The Crown Prints; 10 Easy Steps

1 Make it Official
Get your event date officially scheduled on the Kingdom Calendar. Please consult the instructions here for an overview of the process. Notices for events not on the Calendar will not be printed.

2 Make Sure Event Notices Contain:
    • Date of the event (day, month and legal year)
    • Sponsoring group name
    • Site location (name, street address, town and ZIP code. Maps are not sufficient!)
    • Time the site opens and closes (the o’clock times)
    • Event Steward’s name (both Society and modern)
    • Event Steward’s address & contact information
    • Site fee and non-member surcharge fee along with the statement:
      “Make checks payable to SCA Inc./(group name)”.
      If there is no site fee, please state “There is no site fee for this event.”
      Event Notice Submissions which do not include all the above information are not eligible to have
      Official Kingdom business conducted at them (no awards, law changes, etc. can take place).

3 Consider Additional Details:
    • Directions to the site
    • Merchant information
    • Event info and other important details

4 Keep the Deadline in Mind

5 It’s All in the Name
In the subject line of your submission email you must include the following information:

    • For Columns (COL and Title)
      Example: COL Seneschal
    • For Notices and Announcements (NA and Title)
      Example: NA Heraldry Symposium

6 Keep it Simple
Please do not use any formatting in your submission. Choose a single font and do not format type, use tabs or create columns. Attached MS Word, .txt or .rtf files are preferred.

7 Keep it Short
Aim for 300-400 words for Local Event Notices, 500-700 words for Kingdom Event Notices and 200 words for preliminary notices. Chronicler reserves the right to edit all submissions for space purposes. Event Notices will run the month of and the month prior to the event date provided materials are submitted on time. Additional announcements will be published on a space-available basis.

9 Notify the Authorities
