A friend of mine, Claire Ridgway, who writes non-fiction books about the Anne and George Boleyn and who does not agree with the Kell/McCloud syndrome theory but is a nice person nonetheless, has launched The Tudor Society.
It is “an exclusive membership club for all those who love Tudor history and who want to keep learning more and more … lots of historians and authors want to be involved in this new society, and they are willing to give their time and knowledge to members of the Tudor Society, through magazine articles and talks.”
The Tudor Society has a small monthly/yearly fee to support the upkeep of the site and the production of the magazine and whatnot, but for a few dollars or pounds a month it:
- Gives you the chance to learn from Tudor history experts in the comfort of your own home, wherever you are in the world and without having to worry about time zone differences
- Puts experts in your reach so you can ask your own questions
- Gives you a wide range of Tudor authorities through the monthly digital magazine, forum, chatroom and monthly expert talks
- Is targeted specifically at the Tudor period
- Gives you many ways to learn and interact – listen, read, chat and share
- Offers monthly live online chats with experts
- Helps you find the primary sources and books you need
- Enables you to become quickly absorbed in the 15th and 16th centuries
- Is fun – you can enjoy quizzes, giveaways and chats
- Helps you get to know other Tudor history lovers
I am one of the many author/historians who will be giving my time to the site and my articles to the magazine, so I naturally want to see it thrive. If anyone is interested, just follow the link and sign up.
Hope to see you there!
