Calling all Steampunk Enthusiasts

Claire Tailyour of Slackwire films is seeking interviewees to take part in an upcoming film about Steampunk. Why is Steampunk important to you? How has it enriched your life?

The film, funded by Lancia, will be based in London, but you do not have to be a Londoner to take part. It comes hot on the heels of Slackwire’s steampunk film Ruby’s Skin starring John Bowe (The Hour, Silent Witness, Coronation Street) and Olivia Cooke (The Quiet Ones, Bates Motel, The Signal).

Claire can be contacted via cstailyour@slackwirefilms.com and would like to interview prospective subjects from 7th April.

About Donna Scott

Chair of the BSFA since June 2013. Prior to this I was Awards Administrator, taking over that role from Claire Briarley in 2008. I am officially Donna Bond since getting married in May 2013, but continue to write and perform under my previous name, Donna Scott. My short fiction stories have been published in various anthologies and magazines, and I was winner of the inaugural Short Cuts at the MAC in 2005. As a comedian, I have performed all over the UK. Comedy has also given me the opportunity to perform alongside big names like Sarah Millican and Jasper Carrott! As a poet, I've also performed all over the place, including lots of science fiction conventions, and sometimes my poetry and comedy get kind of mixed up. I was the first official Bard of Northampton, it's true. I've got a tankard that says so... I love being a part of the BSFA - I've always been a devourer of books and being part of this association has enabled me to explore some great science fiction classics - and classics of the future, that I might otherwise have not heard about. I've met some lovely people with an enthusiasm for the genre, made firm friends, and got to meet some of my favourite writers, too! As a writer, I also have to say that FOCUS is the best magazine for writers I've ever come across - and as a member I get that for free. Who wouldn't want to be a part of this?
