There’s one week left until the deadline for Beatdom #19 – the ASIA issue. We are still looking for essays, interviews, fiction, poetry, art, etc etc. relating to the Beats and the topic of Asia. For example, we’d consider essays talking about Kerouac’s interest in Buddhism, Snyder’s time in Japan, Kyger’s travels in India, and Ginsberg’s visit to Cambodia. These are just some of the many, many possibilities.

If you have an idea in mind but think it might take you more time, let me know in an e-mail to As long as we hear from you before March 1st, we can consider work that is submitted a little late.

Here is some more information, and these are the submission guidelines.
