Article from the Salmon Arm Observer:
“Steampunk was a world I thought I invented,” says Lilburn, who favours writing about the implications of alternate dimensions. “When I was going through my dimensions, I thought there needs to be a world where there is no electricity, everything is powered by steam.”
“I think the reason I am so involved in this is because I didn’t find it fast enough; I was told not to (discover) and there wasn’t room to experiment.”
Her workshop will be “What the punk?” an exploration of steampunk history, its origin and how to apply it to every genre of writing

I am excited to announce my participation in the Word on the Lake Writer's Festival organized by the Shushwap Association of Writers. They invited me because I'm hip and I know about steampunk. I'm so flattered. With some great creative writing classes under my belt I am ready to explore some steampunk character archetypes and inventions. Being a teacher is a great job/ could be a great job when the students want to learn. I'm not good at motivating people to learn, that is a skill in itself. So when I know my class/ audience is ready and willing I get super excited. This event will rock.
