FAQs and Resources

I created this page for educators interested in using Enchanted Archives in the classroom and writers interested in submitting library entries for the site. I have relied on the Enchanted Archives as a teaching tool plenty of times in history and writing courses for undergraduates at the university. I am certain that you can make it work in all sorts of classes for all types of students. The key, I think, is to get in touch with me so that we can figure out how we can work together! Send me a note to historian@enchantedarchives.com. I’m excited to hear from you! Before we chat, do me a favor and take a look at this short list of FAQs.

  • If my students write pieces for the library, will you publish them?

    The best course of action would be for you and me to chat about a possible assignment. I want to hear your ideas. I also have a “wish list” of things that I would like to add to the site but just can’t find the time to do. It would be better to pick something off of this list than create something that I am already working on behind the scenes and/or don’t need.

  • Do you accept unsolicited contributions to the site?

    This is related to the first FAQ but necessitates a little more explanation. I do not accept unsolicited contributions. I am, however, open to hearing your ideas for pieces! The key is to get in touch with me before you start writing something for the Enchanted Archives library. I have some research and writing tips. The sooner you have those, the better! I also exercise a pretty careful editorial hand, to make sure that each piece fits within the library catalog and strikes the right tone.

  • Do you have lesson plans or examples for how I might integrate the Enchanted Archives into a class?

    Yes! I do! Let’s have a phone call or email exchange to discuss my ideas. You’re working with a specific student body, and my guess is that your program has some strengths. We will want to try to match your students and strengths with a class project that aligns with my short- and long-term goals.
