I'm Craig, author of Gothic Steampunk novel Greaveburn. I have been given the huge honour of being dubbed as "Man of Words" for the Steampunk Doncaster Festival which will be in June 2013 (15th and 16th). I'll be running the "Litarium", an area where readers and writers can come together and share their love of the Steampunk genre. Literature is, after all, where the whole thing started!
Basically, what I'm looking for are up and coming Steampunk authors who might want a stall for the weekend, to do a signing or a talk, and basically give our festival goers something to really enjoy. Whether it's fiction, non-fiction, or poetry, we really don't mind as long as it's well written. What we want from the Litarium is not only to support the established Greats, but also the smaller authors with ingenuity and drive to push the genre forward.
If anyone is interested, please feel free to contact me at email@example.com with the subject line of "Steampunk Doncaster" (just so I don't miss you). And check out the organisation site over here: www.steampunkdoncaster.org
I hope you guys can make it!
