I’ve founded a new organization dedicated to the advancement of Steampunk fiction worldwide—The Steampunk Writers & Artists Guild. There’s so much confusion about what Steampunk actually is, and with more and more books in this genre hitting the shelves, it seems some cohesion and solidarity is needed. Indeed, there seem to be as many naysayers blogging hate posts as those who adore the storytelling freedom it offers.
It’s not just for writers—there’s room for publishers, agents, readers and bloggers, too. With a forum, blog, chat room and specific interest groups to join, it’s a great community. And it’s beautiful, too. If you’re writing Steampunk fiction, consider joining.
