    Shipwreck & WORD Present: The Great Gatsby
    Shipwreck & WORD Present: The Great Gatsby
    Good theatre for bad literature? Marital aid for book nerds? A literary erotic fanfiction competition for the ages? Shipwreck is all of these things.

    Six Great Writers will destroy one Great Book, one Great Character at a time, in service of the transcendent and the profane (and also laughs). 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.

    All stories will be recited by the voice of Welcome to Night Vale, Cecil Baldwin, both to preserve the majesty of the written work and to ensure the honesty of the audience when voting for a winner.

    Featuring Fanfiction based on THE GREAT GATSBY written by: Meg Bashwiner, Jeffrey Cranor, Joseph Fink, Mara Wilson, Holly Black, Kelly Link and Jacquelyn Landgraf.

    You choose the best Ship, and the winner will be will be cast off from polite society.

    All stories will be recited by the voice of Welcome to Night Vale, Cecil Baldwin, both to preserve the majesty of the written work and to ensure the honesty of the audience when voting for a winner.

    21+ please.

    "Come if you are high on marijuana cigarettes and have done sex before"
    "...the most despicable literary event possible."
    "Maybe if we all go tonight and enjoy their drinks and each others' company, we can get through this together. maybe.
