Steampunk Alert


The Steampunk Writers and Artists Guild


Matt Delman @ Free the Princess did a post yesterday introducing the new Steampunk Writers Guild, of which he is an admin. member.  It's meant to be a gathering place for both writers and artists of Steampunk and is described on the site as:
"the aethernet home for writers, publishers, illustrators, readers and bloggers of Steampunk fiction, founded November 5th, 2010. It's a collaborative party, so don't hold back. Roll up your sleeves and create the groups, forum discussions and community that best suits your needs! This is not a critique group."
It includes areas like:
THE EMPORIUM: for self-promotion
FORUMS: for in depth discussions
GROUPS: for relaxed networking
CHAT: for tea and cake
Hop over and take a look for yourself. It's pretty darn cool!

And as an added bonus, here is a link to an article of the top 20 Essential Works of Utopian Fiction 

Have a great weekend!

Wow, steam punk really is growing. I've only read Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare.

Heather Sunseri said...

I love how there are groups and organizations for all writers out there. It's so important for writers to have communities to help them grow.

Samantha Vérant said...

I have a really good friend who writes Steampunk (middle grade). I'll alert him to the guild. BTW, hi! New follower here.

I need to pick up Clockwork so I can say I've read some steampunk...I blush a little every time the subject comes up...

Have a great weekend, Shannon!

Jackee said...

Such a great idea! Thanks for the link, Shannon. :o) Have a lovely weekend!

Joanne Fritz said...

What a great idea! My son just told me he wants to write Steampunk, so now I can send him to the guild and look like a cool mom. Thanks so much, Shannon!

I loved LEVIATHAN and BEHEMOTH, and I think Steampunk will get more popular.

Interesting link to the Top Utopian novels, too. I've only read LOOKING BACKWARD, WALDEN TWO and LOST HORIZON. Woeful!

L'Aussie said...

These are great links Shannon, but I've been wondering for so long what is steampunk? Obviously typically American???

liakeyes said...

Thank you for spreading the word about The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild on your wonderful blog! Matt and I are excited about the potential of the Guild and Steampunk fiction, too!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Shannon .. sounds a great place for many bloggers, authors et al .. and will be interesting to follow along .. cheers Hilary

Vicki Rocho said...

A year ago, I didn't know what Steampunk was. I'm laughing because
I would have been scratching my head trying to figure out why everyone was so excited!

Sounds like a great place for like-minded writers to get together!

Stephen Tremp said...

Wow! That's a lot of links and info. I'll check them out as I used to love Steampunk as a kid. Is the movie 9 (Tim Burton) considered Steampunk?

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

At the risk of sounding completely in the Dark Ages, what is Steampunk???
