Meridies Arts and Sciences
Welcome to the Arts and Sciences home page for the Kingdom of Meridies!
These pages include information that will be helpful to local officers, entrants, and the populace in general. There is some repetition and cross-referencing in order to ease the fact finding process.
We are entering Autumn as the leaves begin to fall and the air is crisp and cool in our Kingdom. There are many upcoming opportunities for the fine artisans of Meridies to showcase their works. Magna Faire, held within the Barony of Iron Mountain, is the first faire of our Arts and Sciences season. Then in January, a new style of faire will be held in the Shire of Rising Stone. To find out more about any of the faires held in Meridies, just click on the links in the menu to the right on this page.

Introducing the Stella Nova!
A letter from Mistress Maudeleyn, who is the Stella Nova Faire coordinator.
Announcing the Meridian Stella Nova Novice Arts and Sciences Faire! The first run of this faire will take place at Menhir on Jan. 24, 2015 instead of the traditional Regional Faire.
This faire is geared towards novices who haven't entered many A & S faires and are interested in learning more about the process.
What is unique about this faire? By having sponsors to help guide and mentor you, the mystery can be taken out of the process of creating, documenting, and entering arts and sciences faire entries. Every entrant will receive a gift from a sponsor (not their own sponsor.) There will be two Grand Prizes, one is the Queen's Prize, the other is a Judges' Prize.
The Members of the Order of the Laurel will be sponsoring (and mentoring) up to five entrants in the faire. Laurels and members of the Order of the Velvet Owl (or out of Kingdom equivalent) will act as judges.
Answers to Frequently Asked Questions may be found here.
If you are interested in entering, but do not know how to find a sponsor, a number of Laurels have volunteered to leave sponsor spots open for artisans they may not know that need a sponsor. What a great way to meet and work with someone you may not know well! If you are looking for a sponsor, please e-mail Mistress Maudeleyn.
Registration for entrants, sponsors, and judges will open in November.
Any questions should be sent to Mistress Maudeleyn.
Yours in Service,
Mistress Maudeleyn, Kingdom Minister of the Arts and Sciences
