The Offbeatis an independent literary series devoted to publishing a diverse collection of voices, and to promoting contact and discussion among Michigan writers. The Offbeatis run entirely by Michigan State University undergraduates, and is centered in East Lansing. Student editors encourage contributions by all individuals with a Michigan connection, past and present, visitor and resident, urban and rural, student and non-student alike. The Offbeat' goal is to provide an alternative literary outlet for all Michigan writers. The Offbeatpresents, encourages, and explores creative works in fiction, poetry, drama, essay, criticism, image, and that which defies categorization. Its purpose is to call attention to voices both emerging and established, including those that have been previously overlooked.
