Art-making is often a solitary endeavor, but we also know (from personal experience) that artists crave community. Fatal Flaw strives to offer that sense of community to our contributors and readers through our series of online and in-person readings, showcases, and other live events. Join us in connecting and collaborating with other writers, artists, and readers to foster art-making that can change the way we think about the world.

Take a look back at some of our past events and be sure to check out our upcoming ones! We can't wait to welcome you to our curious, oddball community.


Stay tuned for future event announcements!
