How to Write Steampunk & Weird Western

picture of steampunk woman against a clockThe next workshop is Saturday, May 13, 9:30-11:30 AM Pacific time.

How to Write Steampunk & Weird Western will cover gathering and using historical details, ethical implications of both genres, basic mechanical concepts, economic underpinnings, creating texture, dialogue considerations, and more. Plus we’ll do some fun writing exercises. A combination of lecture, discussion, and in-class writing exercises will help you apply new technique immediately to your own work.

Classes are taught online via Google hangouts and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required.

Can’t make the live classes? An on-demand version is in the works; sign up for Cat’s newsletter to get advance word and a special half-off coupon when the class is released.

To register for this class, mail me with the following details:

  • The email address that you use for Google stuff
  • Which class or classes and the dates
  • Remind me if you have already taken a class with me so you can get the former student rate ($79). Otherwise the cost is $99.
  • Whether you would prefer to pay via Paypal, check, or some other means.

Upon receiving that, I will send you an invoice.

Important! Remember every class has a Plunkett scholarship for students who could not otherwise afford the cost. To apply for a Plunkett, mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less.
