What if the world was powered by steam technology, an empire forged in steam, brass, and fire? Seek the fantastic world of your own imagining as a writer of Steampunk literature, all the while creating your own book. Each writer will create a unique story that focuses on embroiling adventures of misfits and vagabonds on the outskirts of Victorian or Enlightened sensibilities. Then we’ll create an artistic DIY booklet to write the final draft of your stories in. Some craft items will be provided, but students are encouraged to bring their own materials and art.
