WE ALL MISTAKES
We’re definitely playing off that little typing error as intentional and not a result of being super under-caffeinated.
But that 👆 is not how you’d fess up to something you royally screwed up recently. At least not at FuckUp Nights, where your neighbors own up to the ways they’ve f*cked up at work, school, or in their personal lives in seven-minute stories.
Think you’d be into that adrenaline rush/evening of hilarious solidarity? Well guess what. We’re partnering up with the Seattle Interactive Conference to co-host a special edition of FuckUp Nights on Wednesday, Oct. 17. And they’ve reserved a one of three speaker slots for one of you.
Want to share a fantastic story of failure onstage? » Hit reply or email us at [email protected] with a couple sentences explaining what kind of story you’d like to tell.
We’ll get back to you all and pick the most interesting submission to send along to our partners at the conference. Questions? Hit reply and we’ll try not to f*ck up the answer.
