badge ChroniclerMistress A’isha bint Jamil, Chronicler of the East Kingdom, writes on behalf of our Kingdom newsletter:

Please consider submitting cover art for Pikestaff.
Questions and submissions can be sent via email to chronicler@eastkingdom.org

The issue format is 8.5 x 11”, with a 1” margin of white space. Art can be line drawings or grey scale. The key is that it must be printable on a black and white printer. Photos rendered in black and white are also an option, but if they contain any people we must have a release form from each and every one before we can use it. This generally prevents us using candid scenes shot at events.

Art can be submitted electronically as a high resolution scan. Graphical formats (gif, jpg, png, etc.) generally give much better results than pdf. If you wish to include the required cover information (month, issue number, date, etc.)  in your art, please contact the chronicler (chronicler@eastkingdom.org) to confirm that the month you are submitting for is available. Otherwise the text will be added by the chronicler during the layout process. You will also need to complete an SCA creative release form (http://www.sca.org/docs/pdf/ReleaseCreative.pdf) granting us permission to publish the artwork. Releases for photos and models can also be found here: http://www.sca.org/docs/library.html.
