As Editor in Chief, I am pleased to fundraise on behalf of this incredible publication, which is driven largely by a phenomenal all-volunteer QTPOC staff. Please support us in our effort to make submission fees free and to make further steps toward increasing honoraria both for our contributors and our editors. Thank you so much!!!

The Offing is an online literary magazine publishing creative writing in all genres and art in all media. We publish work that challenges, experiments, provokes — work that pushes literary and artistic forms and conventions. This is a place for new and emerging writers to test their voices, and for established writers to test their limits. We actively seeks out and supports work by and about those often marginalized in literary spaces
The Offing believes that writers and artists deserve to be compensated for their work, and we pay our contributors. We are working diligently, with your help, to raise the funds to increase our current honoraria amounts and to offer stipends to our editorial staff.
We hope to eventually become sustained through a combination of multiple funding sources. This fundraiser and the community support that comes with it is just the beginning.
