unto the Known World,
revision of the Known World Handbook continues, and while we have already
received some really excellent articles there are still plenty of topics that
we need covered (see needed topics list below). Please remember that we are not
looking for historical research articles but general how-to articles so that a
new player can gain the knowledge that they need to get started in the SCA.
deadline for this second call for articles is September 1, 2009. Please try to
keep the articles between 800 and 3000 words (one to four 8.5x11 pages). Please
submit them via Microsoft Word files, or in the body of an email to: kwh at sca.org .
of existing articles in the KWH are invited to refresh, renew, and update their
prior KWH articles. If you send in any articles, artwork, or photographs,
please fill out the KWH release form available here: sca.org/docs/pdf/kwhrelease.pdf
and email it back to us at kwh at sca.org.

KWH is targeted to new comers to the SCA with
less than 2 years experience. The KWH will be universal with concepts that span
all Kingdoms. The KWH will contain topics and
information that will last at least 10 years. The KWH needs to support existing
SCA documents and handbooks, not try to replace them.
