could be treated as a high priority item.  If July newletters have not been 
yet put to bed, inclusion would be greatly appreciated.

Also, please feel free to spread to the different newsboards.

Thank you in advance,



Position Available – Editor, The Compleat Anachronist

The Society for Creative Anachronism Inc. is accepting applications for the 
position of Editor for The Compleat Anachronist. The Compleat Anachronist is 
a pamphlet series published four times a year. Each issue focuses on a topic 
relevant to the time period 600 C.E. to 1600 C.E. The Compleat Anachronist 
therefore gives readers an opportunity to review a subject in much more 
detail than Tournaments Illuminated, a Kingdom Arts and Sciences 
publication, or a local newsletter can provide.

In addition to producing issues, the editor answers queries, develops 
manuscripts, maintains contact with reviewers and illustrators, and submits 
quarterly reports to the Board of Directors. The position requires 
approximately 10 hours per month, except during the month before 
publication, when 20 to 25 hours is spent putting an issue together (this 
includes proofreading, layout, correspondence, and file sharing with 
authors/reviewers). The deadlines to get the layout to the printer are 7 
December, 7 March, 7 June, and 7 September. The issues are mailed for 
January, April, July, and October.

Qualifications for the position include excellent written and oral 
communication skills, the ability to work independently to prioritize tasks 
and meet deadlines, and strong computer skills. Professional experience in a 
modern editing design, art direction or desktop publishing environment and 
prior experience in an SCA chronicler position are desirable, but not 

Applicants need to have access to and experience with a computer running 
PageMaker, Quark or InDesign and the ability to export files to .pdf format 
(if working on a PC – our printing vendor uses Macintosh computers). 
Reasonable expenses are covered by the Corporation and may include: paper, 
printer cartridges, stamps, express mailing of discs and bluelines to 
printer, and a post office box. You will be asked to submit an expense 
report, with receipts attached to receive reimbursement. The Editor also 
receives a small stipend from SCA once an issue is completed.

Hard copies of résumés (both professional and medieval, including offices 
held and awards received) must be sent to:

SCA Inc.

Attn: CA Editor Position

P.O. Box 360789

Milpitas, CA 95036-0789

Electronic copies may also be sent to resumes at sca.org.

Résumés must be received by July 31, 2006. Questions regarding the position 
may be directed to Theresa Crean, The Compleat Anachronist Editor via 
telephone at (613) 328-7721, or via e-mail at caeditor at sca.org.

Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to:

Box 360789
Milpitas,  CA 95036
