Shipwreck

What the heck is Shipwreck?

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 our home base, the Booksmith in San Francisco. 

Fics are blind-read, and you choose the best ship before the writers are unmasked. The winner is cast off from polite society, and invited back the next month to defend their title.

Shipwreck is the brainchild of Amy Stephenson (emcee, co-creator/producer)
and Casey Childers (co-creator/producer).

 

First Thursdays. $10 advance tickets / $12 at the door. Ticket includes open bar for 21+.
