    **I’m including the category of Study Groups as a resource.  Study groups are NOT guilds, but more likely than not the remnants of a floundering guild.  They are designed to encourage a common interest in lettering arts.  They gather as often or as little as they choose without any formal structure, but perhaps with enough interest, a guild could come to life.  Wouldn’t that be wonderful?  tjk
