Due to the spread of COVID-19 throughout NYC, all in-person events have been suspended indefinitely. Please practice social distancing and help us protect the most vulnerable members of our society. If you must go outside for work, groceries, or medication, be sure to consult the NYC Health Department's policies

Our team is taking this time to slow down and check in with our loved ones. We encourage you to do the same, and hope everyone is safe and healthy.

We are currently compiling a list of resources for our community ranging from help with housing, food, counseling, and more. We will also host a failee check-in in mid-April. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to reach out.

~The Fail Better NYC Team


Fail Better NYC is a developmental POC centric community of multi-disciplinary artists who safely experiment together with their unfinished, messes-in-progress. We welcome you to share your new or revisited work with us in our free workshops where failure is destigmatized and productive mistakes are embraced: Fail Better Reading Series, Storytime, Quiet Time, and 1st Draft Series. Each program encourages artists to fail and grow through cold readings, unpolished performances, and constructive feedback tailored to their respective needs.

"Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better."
-Samuel Beckett, Worstward Ho
