"It's like rain on your wedding day." - O Henry


Welcome, Shipsters, to San Francisco's premier literary erotic fanfiction event. 

Six Great Writers destroy six notable characters from one Great Book on the first Thursday of every month

at Booksmith. Fics are blind-read and the best ship chosen before the writers are unmasked.

The winner is cast off from polite society, and invited back the next month to defend their title.


         December features writers Whitney Miller, Roe McDermott, Kelly Anneken, Sara Farizan, Lauren Parker, Nico Meyering, and more.


         Tickets $10 advance ($12 at the door), in the store or at Brown Paper Tickets online.

         Ticket includes open bar for 21+.





NOTE: No children are ever harmed at Shipwreck, and consent and inclusion are paramount. We're not dicks, we just like dick jokes. More on Shipwreck here.
