Shipwreck Presents: Edgar Allan Poe
Try to still the beating of your hideous heart: for the month of October, we're presenting an array of stories and poems by Edgar Allan Poe for our writers to sink their beaks into.
Featuring stories based on The Tell-Tale Heart, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Cask of Amontillado, The Mask of the Red Death, The Pit and the Pendulum, and, of course, The Goddamn Raven. Featured writers: Sarah Blake, Sang Kim, September winner Ken Grobe, Sarah Manolis, Kaeli Quick, and Meg Trowbridge.
$12 advance, $15 door, seats usually sell out fast. Ticket includes open bar for 21+, but BYPO Amontillado.
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."
