Crier Submission Guidelines:
Step 1: All events must have an Event Information Form (EIF) on
file with the Kingdom
Calendar Deputy (firstname.lastname@example.org) before event copy can
be published in the

of time for processing,
please!) to your Principality Calendar Deputy. The Kingdom
Calendar Deputy’s deadline
remains the 15th of the month, 2 months before publication.
