Welcome to BEAT-L, an online discussion forum devoted to the study of
the lives and works of the writers of the Beat Generation, especially
Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, and William Burroughs. BEAT-L is an
unmoderated list open to anyone interested in the Beat Generation.
Scholars, writers, students, laymen -- all are welcome to join the
discussion and share their ideas. In addition to providing an outlet
for discussion of Beat texts, the listserv is intended to facilitate
scholarly communication and to serve as a bulletin board or calendar
for poetry readings, announcements of new publications, upcoming
conferences and other Beat related events.
