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.

watch the event here

In the first of a series of illuminating salons, Fatal Flaw and friends discuss “Acceptance and Rejection.” Moderated by writer Laura Venita Green, a panel of four editors will answer questions about editorial decisions and discuss the art of making a magazine. We hope to create a dialogue between writers and the magazines they submit to that will provide artists with the knowledge to better understand the creative process of publishing a magazine and help navigate the submission process.
