On June 16, 2018, from 12-1 EST, please join us for the #SolarpunkChat Twitter chat! World Weaver Press is hosting this month, and the topic will be Sustainable Technologies of the Future. We'll be talking about all the Earth-friendly tech that already exists and what could exist someday, as well as what kinds of interesting technology makes for great optimistic sci-fi stories even if it probably isn't practical in real life. Everyone with an interest in environmental speculative fiction is welcome to join. This chat is a great way to connect with other solarpunk, eco-speculation, or cli-fi readers and writers. A few of the authors from the Glass and Gardens: Solarpunk Summers anthology are likely to stop by.

How does a Twitter chat work? Basically, we'll start with introductions and then post a number of questions throughout the hour. Use the hashtag #solarpunkchat in every tweet or response you want the other participants to see, even if you're responding or quote-tweeting. Using the hashtag creates a sort of chatroom within Twitter — click the hashtag and sort for "Latest" to see what other chat participants are posting. Our questions will be labeled "Q1", "Q2", etc. and it's helpful to label your responses "A1", "A2," etc. But so long as you include the hashtag on every tweet, it's all good.
