Steampunk Chat

Posted by: Jenny Schwartz
Hiya folks! All aboard the dirigible and be sure to buckle up ... no, Seleste, you do not need that handsome young steward to assist you with that particular buckle -- Cindy, did you just pinch his butt?!!


ahem, and gentlemen.

The Steampunk Writers and Artists Guild has invited me to host their weekly #steampunkchat on Twitter, tonight. At 9pm (New York time) we're all "Off to the Antipodes" -- which is this week's theme for the chat.

What do you think of when you hear "the Antipodes"? What is steampunk like in Australia? Are there kangaroos?

Well, bring your questions and your dreams to Twitter and join the party.

These weekly #steampunkchats are fun and very welcoming (and I am a very nervous first time host and would love some support). You can see transcripts of past chats here.

A twitter chat is simply a discussion organised around everyone including the same hashtag in their tweets. In this case, that hashtag is #steampunkchat . The chat will run for an hour and at the end of it, there'll be five minutes for a self-promo (because we're shameless steampunkers) tweet from everyone.

If I don't stuff up this hosting gig, I'll be back 25 May to host another #steampunkchat, this time on the theme "Steampunk and Romance". I can't wait for that one, either!


  1. Fun stuff, hope the chat goes well! I have to say I love the look and feel of the steampunk genre...

  2. Thanks, Veronica ... be very careful, though. Once steampunk bites you, you stay bit! Next thing you know, Ancient Egypt will be flying dirigibles

  3. Sounds very cool! I don't *think* I'm doing anything that Friday, as it's the first weekend the kids are out of school. So I may be pulling my hair out...

  4. School holidays! All is forgiven in advance if you miss the chat...hope you and the kids have fun (and survive!)
