Steampunk Workshop with Shanna Germain

Like Clockwork: Building Steampunk Stories That Fly

Steampunk is a fascinating genre with a long history, and one whose popularity is ever-growing. You've seen it in movies like Wild Wild West and Sherlock Holmes, read it in the works of Jules Verne and H.G. Wells, and even played it in games like World of Warcraft. Now is the time to don your goggles, wind up your favorite pocketwatch, and pen fabulous steampunk stories of your own. In this five-week class, you'll uncover the origins of steampunk, explore the various sub-genres and tropes, and write stories full of steam robots, zepplins, victorian garb and Gatling guns. Guidance and feedback provided. Goggles not included.
