Loose Lips: Fanfiction Parodies of Great (and Terrible) Literature from the Smutty Stage of Shipwreck (Paperback)
Oh my God, guys, can you believe they gave us a book? Three years of Shipwreck stories by award-winning, best-selling, and as-yet unknown writers, wrecking dozens of books, and even illustrated for your pleasure by Madeline Gobbo. Fair use has never been so titillating. (Amy)
In 2013, humanitarians Amy Stephenson and Casey A. Childers took fanfiction from the internet to the stage with Shipwreck, a monthly erotic fanfiction competition. Shipwreck is simple:
- Invite (bestselling, Hugo, Nebula, and Rita award-winning) writers to rework literature into low humor, erotic pastiche, and, like, LOTS ofdick euphemisms
- Perform said rewrites for a well-lubricated crowd
