Shipwreck Returns to Booksmith! Mary Poppins Edition
June 20 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm$12 – $15
Join us for a Very Special One-Off event as San Francisco’s premier Literary Erotic Fanfiction Competition gets the band back together: Amy hosts, Baruch reads, and Casey records.
Hop on that East Wind: we’re doing a Mary Poppins adaptation that’s sure to be even worse than the 2018 Emily Blunt vehicle (probably). Join us to get all those chimney sweep jokes out of your system. Costumes encouraged. Get scared.
Featured writers: Returning champs Joe Wadlington & Maggie Tokuda-Hall, plus Kirstie Haruta, Alan Leggitt, Amanda Rosenberg, Molly Sanchez, and more TBA.
Welcome, Shipsters, to San Francisco’s premier literary erotic fanfiction event.
Six Great Writers destroy six notable characters from one Great Book on one notable Thursday this June 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 at some point to defend their title.
Critics are saying:
wait, they’re still doing that?
… the most despicable literary event possible.
I’m so lost and so scared
… an affront to literature.
wonderfully, masterfully, hilariously disgusting.
come if you are high on marijuana cigarettes and have done sex before.
Shipwreck will bring you to madness and you may never return.
I do not care for this.
…lovingly rendered artisanal small batch nightmares…
