With the local Write Club chapter thriving after 20 of its monthly third Tuesday shows at the Make-Out Room, hosts Casey Childers and Steven Westdahl have partnered with the Booksmith to create a "competitive erotic fanfiction contest" called Shipwreck. Here's the idea: "Six writers tear apart one great book, one great character at a time, in service of the transcendent and the profane (and also laughs)." The possibilities for this show are endless: Writers can take characters out of their worlds and give them an entirely different story; they even can change plotlines. Even without such a liberating pretext, Nate Waggoner and Sarah Griffin – two of the first show's contestants – consistently disturb their audiences with humor and fantastic twists of the possible. All stories will be recited by Westdahl, who has a booming, theatrical voice, in order to "preserve the majesty of the written work" and also to ensure the audience, when voting, considers only the merits of each work (and not the authors). The winning writer gets to choose the next book. So if you get on board, prepare to go down.
