With Abandon is the eighth volume in the independent literary series, The Offbeat, devoted to publishing a diverse collection of voices, and to promoting contact and discussion among writers. The Offbeat is run entirely by Michigan State Undergraduates, and is centered in East Lansing. The mission of The Offbeat is to provide an alternative literary outlet for writers from Michigan and beyond, and to call attention to voices both emerging and established.
     The Offbeat: With Abandon features a wide array of writing that cuts across genres, highlighting the best work by authors ranging from professional journalists to undergraduate writers. Thrown into the mix are voices from professors of literature, graduate students in creative writing, and even a few of our editorial staff. In this volume, writing is an act of faith, a documentation of the joy and terror of life, and above all, an act of witness.
