The Offbeat Generation

The Offbeat generation is a loose association of like-minded writers working across different styles but united by their opposition to a mainstream publishing industry driven by marketing departments.

In August 2007 Arena Magazine wrote of them: "Young, untamed, good-looking and as influenced by punk rock as they are by Proust, a new wave of loosely-linked writers dubbed The Off-Beat Generation have been blitzing the net with stories and poems via MySpace and supportive sites such as 3:AM Magazine to organise events and gain publicity."
