Ins & Outs Press


Ins & Outs Press

Ins & Outs Press is a small English-language publisher with international connections based in Amsterdam and registered in the Netherlands as a cultural foundation, or "stichting". It was started in 1980 by Eddie Woods, Jane Harvey and Henk van der Does as a natural extension of "Ins & Outs" magazine, the first three issues of which were produced by Woods and Harvey in 1978. For two years the Press also operated the Ins & Outs Bookstore, located on the 'quiet fringe of the red-light district,' until Van der Does left the organization to start his own bookshop and Woods converted the ground floor of the six-story Ins & Outs building into a gallery and performance space.

The Press remained periodically active throughout the 1980s and into the early 1990s. In 1993, with the premises lost the previous year following a series of acrimonious lawsuits with the landlord (and Woods having gone personally bankrupt), Ins & Outs went into a long spell of 'suspended animation' from which it only began emerging (and on a much smaller scale) in 2004.

Among the poets and authors published by Ins & Outs are Allen Ginsberg, Paul Bowles, Harold Norse, Jack Micheline, William Levy, Ira Cohen, Mel Clay, Gerard Malanga, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Norman Rubington/Akbar del Piombo, Bob Kaufman, Charles Henri Ford, Jack Hirschman, Heathcote Williams, Simon Vinkenoog, Hans Plomp, Rachel Pollack, Gregory Corso, [http://www.bigbridge.org/issue6/robertov.htm Roberto Valenza] , Bob Black, Jan Kerouac, [http://www.greeninteger.com/pipbios_detail.cfm?PIPAuthorID=1605 Bert Schierbeek] , et al.

The current directors of the Ins & Outs Foundation are Eddie Woods and Jane Harvey. Ins & Outs Press has never had any employees, as such: all tasks, on every level, are performed by volunteers. Nor has Ins & Outs ever received state sponsorship in the form of either subsidies or grants; patronage (reasonably substantial over the years) is strictly private.
