Start with the basics: check the guidelines.
Also check out www.americanshakespearecenter.com. There are GREAT "Stuff that Happens in the Play" synopses that might help you get to the crux of things.
Also, on Twitter, ASC_Christina (that's me) and ASC_Cass are both Shakespeare and Steampunk nuts and we'd love to hear your great ideas!
I can't wait to read the final book!
Thank you, Christina! That's so helpful! I'm now following you both (as @LiaKeyes). I'll add your link to the http://steampunkshakespeare.com blog post, too. :)
For other SWAG members who might be interested in the "Stuff That Happens In the Play" summaries, they tend to be links you'll find at the bottom of pages of upcoming productions. I found ones for MEASURE FOR MEASURE, MACBETH
If people want ones for other plays, they can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be happy to find it and send it along to them!
Also, if they have any questions or anything, I would be happy to help!
