Join Jenny Schwartz Friday night to chat about Steampunk Romance. From Jenny:
This Friday, May 25, at 9 pm (New York time, which is Saturday morning if you’re an Aussie) I’ll be hosting the last #steampunkchat before the Twitterati scatter for their (northern) summer holidays — so be sure to join in before #steampunkchat goes on summer hiatus. The theme is Steampunk Romance. If you read, write, costume, sing or otherwise adore the romantic element in Steampunk, please join the one hour Twitter chat. Everyone is welcome and the chat is very friendly.
The #steampunkchat will kick off with the question: What makes steampunk romantic? You are more than welcome to argue that steampunk is not romantic at all…but I won’t believe you Also think heroes, heroines, villains, etiquette, social change and mechanical marvels. I’m looking forward to a lively discussion. At the end of the session, there’ll be five minutes for everyone to share a self-promo post.
Look for Cindy Spencer Pape at World Steam Expo in Dearborn, MI this coming weekend.
Rebecca York, who has been running a critique group since the mid 80's, is excited to announce that she received the WRW Nancy Richards-Akers Mentoring Award. Unfortunately, she has the slight feeling that "it never even happened," because she was in Belgium when they made the presentation.
