this place was created due to lack of other beat-dedicated communities, because places like beathotel are more geared toward original poetry/prose.

the purpose of this is to discuss people, ideas, pomes and letters, along with favorite excerpts; including (but not limited to)Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac, Neal Cassady, Carolyn Cassady, William S. Burroughs, John Clellon Holmes, Gregory Corso, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Gary Snyder, et. al.

please keep everything on-topic. original work is allowed, but not the point. if you are posting your word, or if you are posting anything fairly long, please keep it behind the lj-cut. i am a moderator, and i will cut anything i find off-topic, offensive, ignorant, or brazenly stupid.
