We will supply the note card stock and envelope.

Calligraphy will be considered "extra points" and may be done as a return address on the envelope or in any other form.
You may supply documentation on a 3x5 index card, or similar forum.
We strongly recommend that you bring your own equipment with you (it's always easier to work with the tools you're familiar with), however; we will have
equipment available for use, but these may not be up to your rigorous standards. No penalization will be made for using modern materials.
There will be three levels of competition:
Novice (no Kingdom-level recognition for scribal skill)
Journeyman (Kingdom-level recognition for scribal skill)
Master (Laurel for scribal skill).
If you have received a Kingdom-level award for another art form you may compete either as a Journeyman or a Novice.
If you have received a Laurel in another art form, you may compete at any level you choose.
All entries will be donated to and become the property of the reigning Queen of the East for use.
Reasonable allowances will be made to starting and finishing times. All entries must be completed no later than 4 PM in order to give the Judges time to consider.
Judges shall look for the following criteria:
2- "Trueness" to style
