Once your message has been approved, you should receive a copy of your message and it should show up in the public message archives.
What kind of posts are appropriate for the list?
We warmly welcome all announcements relevant to researchers and others interested in folktales, fairy tales and fantasy. We also encourage discussion. We hope the list will be a useful source of information, and a medium for researchers to share their experience and expertise.
However we are also wary of filling people’s inboxes! So we have put together informal guidelines (based on the experience of other academic lists):
- For lengthy discussions we may request that you continue the conversation off-list.
- If you have a request which is likely to solicit many responses (e.g. an open request for works about a particular subject or author), please ask that all responses are sent to you rather than to the list. If appropriate, you can then compile responses and share these with the list!
