“National Beat Poetry Festival (NBPF) and “International Beat Poetry Festival (IBPF), and “Kerouac Cafe”. While we continue to preserve the writings of the “Beat Generation”, we strive to keep evolving to create a new “Beat Generation” of Poets, Writers, Artists & Musicians. We are dedicated to hosting, collaborating, and fostering joint partnerships for “Beat” themed poetry readings, workshops, plays, radio shows, locally, across the United States, and Worldwide. The National Beat Poetry Festival was started in 2008 by Colin Haskins, celebrating its ten year anniversary, (2008-2018) Beat Poetry is poetry that has no conventional form. It is the epitome of free verse, and style. It is individual expression of ones own ideas on love, life, and the world, unencumbered by traditional rules.The National Beat Poetry Foundation, Inc. supports the further development and exposure of non-traditional poetry from people of all ages and backgrounds within communities where interest is significant and/or where interest needs support. The Beat Generation’s significant writings and history of its original prime movers lives on from its inception in the early 1940’s, and its legacy continues today by way of new writers, poets, artists, and musicians of disparate influences and means of expression. The NBPF, Inc. is committed to not only supporting venues in existence, but also in developing new venues where cultural preservation and the works of new artists can show yesterday meeting the living voices of today. NBPF, Inc. activities promote literacy and open exchange dialogue which incorporates the Beat history and art at its base, to break boundaries and bridge cultures with new thought, ideas, and free expression. Jack Kerouac, the founder of the Beat Generation said it best. Beat Poetry is sympathetic and pure. It gives a voice to everyone. It is free verse using your own form, your own rules, to express your own ideas on love, life, and the world.


“ WHAT IS BEAT ” excerpts from the poems by Chris Vannoy “Beat” is not a “what”, Beat is an “IT” It´s jazz blues crying out on the night of moody stars over a city that never sleeps.

It´s dreams left sleeping by the click-clack rail road tracks and dreams waking on beaches with the taste of last night´s drunk still in your mouth ...
