A catch-all sort of class about taking small steps to improve your work. Come pick Mathildis' brain and learn things that aren't already covered in other classes of the day. Want to try gilding? Maybe how to use a dip pen or cut a quill? Have you ever test-driven a scrap of vellum or perg? Perhaps you'd like to improve your work with period margins? Whatever you want and we have time for, if Mathildis knows it, you can learn it.

Sestinas, Ballades, and Triolets: Three Period Poetry Forms And How to Write Them

Baron Andreas Blacwode
Time: 3 pm
Length: 1.5 hrs
SCA Period is full of period poetry forms. Rare is the culture or subculture that didn't have some kind of generally formal form of poetry, from the haiku of Japan to the sagas of the Norse, to the sonnets of Europe. But many SCA poets and bards limit themselves to the simplest of these forms. Today we’ll talk about three complex European forms: the sestina, the triolet, and the ballade, where they come from, and most importantly, how to write them.
