Seating is limited and seats do sell out. Tickets on sale now.



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 by our Thespian-in-Residence, Baruch Porras-Hernandez, 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.

Critics are saying:
“… the most despicable literary event possible.”
“… an affront to literature.”
“It used to be we had to sit in dark, sticky booths to get these kinds of sleazy thrills.”
“Come if you are high on marijuana cigarettes and have done sex before.”
“… a vile, disgusting event.””Shipwreck will bring you to madness, and you may never return.”
“…wonderfully, masterfully, hilariously disgusting.”
“…punny sodomy and gross indecency.”

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

Shipwreck tickets are non-refundable and non-transferable for any reason. Tickets on sale now.
