Hints for Chroniclers.

Passing this along to you all, by request.  While we have no Chronicler, I believe any input would be appreciated.

Tournaments Illuminated Quest Request: Hints for Chroniclers. Kindly share this with your group.
———–

From officers’ letters, event reports and award congratulations, to feature articles on history and how-to, recipe redactions, persona stories and poetry; newsletters offer much to enrich the SCA experience. They also serve communities beyond geographic borders — many guilds boast exemplary newsletters.

Chroniclers, what tips can you offer fellow officers on the never-ending search for content and relevance? What are your favorite sources and sites? How do you set yourself and your authors up for success? What are your popular features? Readers, in your SCA newsletters, what’s the first thing you turn to? What’s valuable to you? What’s fun? What would you like to see? Send your ideas and input (200-300 words) to tieditor@sca.org and they may appear in the 3rd Quarter 2018 issue of Tournaments Illuminated.

Updated Hate Speech Language

At the Board of Directors July 2018 meeting, the following addition to Corpora was approved and is to be considered effective immediately.
“Corpora Article X, Grievances and Sanctions, A. General, Add Section 4:   Hate Speech
Hate speech is not tolerated in the Society.  Hate speech is speech or symbols that offend, threaten, or insult individuals or groups, based on race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability or other traits.  Such symbols and speech have no essential part of any discussion of ideas and are of so little value to the Society that any benefit that may be derived from them is clearly outweighed by the harm caused. The use by any participant in the Society may result in possible sanctions up to and including revocation of membership and denial of participation.
Please report any possible instances of hate speech to your Kingdom Seneschal, the Society Seneschal or the President of the SCA immediately.  For more information about hate speech and the reporting of same, please refer to the Society Seneschal’s Handbook.  “

I don’t know if anyone will find these useful… more mundane than period I suppose, but I thought I would leave them here for future reference.

Have fun!
