Conflict of Interest covers the visual art and literary communities of Austin, Texas. Through our articles, interviews, and featured work, we intend to dive deeply into both communities and highlight the people working within them.

The name Conflict of Interest stems from the overtly interwoven nature of Austin’s creative community. Rather than shy away from our conflicts of interest, we celebrate our tightly knit community.
