Beatdom #19 Theme – Asia

Submissions are now open for Beatdom #19 and the theme shall be Asia. We will consider essays relating the Beat Generation to Asia, as well as poems, short stories, and artwork on the topic of Asia. We have selected this theme because it is wide enough to invite a good variety of research. Many of the Beat writers travelled to Asia and those who didn’t were often interested in Asian language, literature, or culture.

We will take submissions on this theme from now until March 1st, 2018. See the submission guidelines for more info or just send an e-mail to editor [at] beatdom (dot) com.
