Shipwreck NY Super Week: Princess Bride

Shipwreck NY Super Week: Princess Bride

The San Francisco-based team behind the literary erotic fanfiction competition SHIPWRECK returns for one unforgettable night in October to take on William Goldman's The Princess Bride at New York Comic Con 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, Mara Wilson.
 
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. Enjoy! The nerdy a cappella of Choirfly. Drink! A lot, probably.
 
Featuring: Michelle Hodkin, Daniel Jose Older, Arianna Rebolini & Katie Heaney, Seanan McGuire, Diana Pho, & Dana Schwartz.
 
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 is brought to you by Booksmith, Amy Stephenson, and Casey Childers.

**Tickets can be purchased online via credit card up to 30 minutes before the listed start time. Tickets bought on-site at the door must be purchased via cash-only

"Welcome, Shipsters, to New York's premier literary erotic fanfiction event. 

Six Great Writers destroy six notable characters from one Great Book on May 28th at the Bell House in Brooklyn.
