Allen Ginsberg inspired the Van Gogh’s Ear Anthology Series for allowing complete creative freedom to everyone everywhere from all walks of life. All languages welcome. There is no censorship. Do your own thing. This is your creation. Dare to be different!
Founded by Ian Ayres, Van Gogh’s Ear: Best World Poetry, Prose & Art is an international anthology series based in Paris, France and published in conjunction with Allen Ginsberg’s Committee on Poetry in New York City. Since its debut in 2002, Van Gogh’s Ear has gained considerable acclaim for its eclecticism and publishing such legends as Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Yoko Ono, John Gilmore, Xaviera Hollander, Serge Gainsbourg, Taslima Nasreen, Edmund White, Maya Angelou, Thich Nhat Hanh, William S. Burroughs and a great many more renowned poets, novelists, political activists, alongside never-before-heard voices from every walk of life in all parts of the world. Van Gogh’s Ear is now breaking new ground through an innovative community of poets, novelists, artists, political activists, celebrity legends, and never-before-heard/seen artists whose work stems from the traditional to the experimental, daring, thought-provoking, and imaginative. Distributed throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, South Africa and Australia, this internationally acclaimed anthology series has become an affluent resource for universities, teachers, students and readers alike.
We sincerely hope you enjoy the new site and are always seeking all things creative, daring and brutally…honest. If you are interested in contributing your works or have any further questions please email Tina Ayres at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
