The Offing is an online literary magazine publishing creative writing in all genres and art in all media. The Offing actively seeks out and supports work by and about those often marginalized in literary spaces, including Black and Indigenous people, and people of color; trans people, cis women, agender, gender non-conforming, genderqueer, two-spirit, and non-binary people; intersex people; LGBQA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, asexual/aromantic) people; people with disabilities; and especially people living at the intersections of these identities.

Decolonize This Place is a movement space that is action-oriented around indigenous struggle, black liberation, Free Palestine, global wage workers and de-gentrification. Facilitated by MTL+, Decolonize This Place is located at 55 Walker Street, New York. 

This will be the first in a series of free events produced and created by Insurgent Poets Society at Decolonize This Place, 55 Walker Street, New York through Fall 2016 that will create a movement for building resistance and community while surviving state-sanctioned violence and gentrification.
