  3. Hi.
    This looks very interesting. I have shaken hands with three out of five of your Honorary Members and wrote about it in issue six of Beatdom. I have been a newspaper and magazine article writer for years and my most recent work is in the last two issues of Beatdom, as well as the upcoming issue eight.
    Please ad me for updates and discussions.

  6. Hi

    Looks intriguing. I have just started a PhD at Leeds University, within the School of Music, looking at counter cultural movements, including the Beats. This will be a great resource.




  7. E Roebuck says:

    Hello Dr. Harris,

    Some time ago, we corresponded over a chapter I sent you, written about the “Naked Lunch” trial, for the textbook “Propaganda Without Proagandists?” I’m keen to learn more about and help launch EBSN. Feel free to contact me at the above e-mail



  8. here is a post on the latest issue of Beatdo, released 12/17/11.
    thank you!


  9. Hi from Paris,
    I’ve been working on and with Beat/Post-Beat/Beyond-Beat, jazz & noise poets around the world and would like to be part of this magnificent zone, share experiences, present my translations of Beat poets into other languages and, most importantly, contribute for the renaissance of a new spirit.
    This is the link concerning my latest artshow/ exhibition:!__exhibition-henrik-aeshna

    Also, I (- alongside Tsunami bOOKS -) host poetry nights in Paris (Cabaret Toxique) :

    Look forward to hearing from you, guys

    Congratulations & Warm regards

    hi from vienna,

    i would like to join the list of memebers.
    i am working on my dissertation about ruth weiss at the institute of theatre, film and media studies at the university of vienna.
    the network looks very interesting and could be a wonderful source.

    best regards,
    lia altendorfer


    • Hi Lia,
      Good to hear from you. I’m sure you must know Thomas Antonic, whose interview with ruth is in our ‘Scholarship’ section. To join just send a short bio to info[at]
      Best of luck with your dissertation!


  12. I have been most surprised about this site, The good old Beat Generation has gone now for most of it’s members have reached the age of peace, yet some of us off springs of the left over ” Road” have kept the faith and joined at a later time the end of the 60ties free movements and kept moving it started with Allen and Jack and many others and will never finish since the Super Markets of California will always carry the food for intestinal evacuations and the glorious spirits of the words which made the renewal of intellectual and sensual America, We once had Ezra Poud a loner today we have the tremendous works of Gins berg Kerouac Snyder and we can dream again into a American surrealist and sensual reality earthy food for the mind…………….

    I would like to become a member of EBSN.
    I am currently writing my MA dissertation on Jack Kerouac. I was wondering how much commentary/ criticism is there about Jack Kerouac’s only play ” Beat Generation”
