Happy Birthday Lawrence Ferlinghetti!

Excuse this belated post…

Lawrence Ferlinghetti turned 91 on March 24th.

Ferlinghetti is the author of A Coney Island of the Mind and, of course, the owner of City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco. He was the publisher of Ginsberg’s “Howl” among other Beat texts.

Issue Seven

Beatdom #7 will be music-themed issue, exploring the links between the Beats and jazz, and their influence on musicians in the late 20th century.

We’re looking forward to talking to musicians and poets, and exploring the link between Beat literature and the rhythm and lyrics of music.

For this issue we’re looking for essays relating to both the Beats and the magazine theme. As usual, submissions should be sent to editor [at] beatdom [dot] com.

Beatdom on Facebook

Since being founded in 2007, Beatdom has taken advantage of the internet to reach as many people as possible. In the beginning we largely used MySpace, before getting a Blogger blog. Soon after, we acquired our own website:

Recently we have begun using Twitter and Facebook to promote Beatdom.

Today we upgraded our Facebook presence from group to page. Please consider joining one or both to help expand the Beatdom family.

New Blog

Beatdom magazine has been around since 2007. We’ve had a number of online “homes” since then, and our main one is currently However, we are always trying to make it easier for our readers and fans to interact with the editors and writers of Beatdom, and you can find us all over the internet.

Our old blog was our first home. It ran its course and although we still update it from time to time, it’s little more than a memory. We plan on developing this blog to look far superior to the old one.

Of course, we have a MySpace page. It was instrumental before Facebook became the best way of communicating with our readers.

Now our Facebook group is the most important tool we have for talking to you guys.

We have our own social network. It’s not exactly as busy as MySpace or Facebook, but it’s alright.

And of course, there’s Twitter. You can follow our feed on the right of this page, or click this link.
