Shipwreck Presents: A Literary Erotic Fanfic Competition based on The Princess Bride. It's a Shipwreck! It's a book launch party! It's everything you've ever wanted!
The San Francisco-based team behind the literary erotic fanfiction competition SHIPWRECK heads to The Public Works SF for one unforgettable night in September to take on William Goldman's The Princess Bride in celebration of the launch of Shipwreck's first anthology, LOOSE LIPS, forthcoming from Grand Central Publishing on 9/27.
SHIPWRECK invites six Great Writers to write fanfic about characters from one Great Book, and you get to decide the winner before we reveal who wrote what. How? All fics are read by our Thespian-In-Residence, Cecil Baldwin.
See! Six respected writers debase themselves for applause and dick jokes. Marvel! As beloved characters are plucked from their worlds and made to do stuff they were never meant to do in places they were never meant to see. Pray! That you never have to sit on stage and face a crowd while someone else reads your fanfic. Drink! A lot, probably.
Featuring: Casey Childers, Jane Harrison, Baruch Porras-Hernandez, Kate Schatz, Michelle Threadgould, and Maggie Tokuda-Hall.
[No children are ever harmed at Shipwreck, and consent and inclusion are paramount. We're not dicks, we just like dick jokes. Shipwreck is brought to you by Booksmith, Amy Stephenson, and Casey Childers.]
PLEASE NOTE: This event is at Public Works, 161 Erie Street. Tickets: $12 for general admission, $29.50 for admission + a copy of Loose Lips.
