This edition includes writings by over seventy artists, art historians and poets, many clearly inspired and energized by the Occupy Wall Street movement, and continues M/E/A/N/I/N/G's commitment to maintaining an open, non-profit space for independent writing about art.

In January 2010, Schor was awarded a Creative Capital / Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant to develop A Year of Positive Thinking, a blog which includes writings on contemporary art and culture to accompany and provides a positive counterpoint to the publication of her book A Decade of Negative Thinking: Essays on Art, Politics, and Daily Life.
