Simon Vinkenoog was born in Amsterdam in the popular district of Pijp. In 1944 he graduated from MULO high school.
From 1949 to 1956, he worked for UNESCO in Paris, France, where he lived for a total of 8 years.
He began in 1950 with a collection of poetry: “Windroos” (fr: Rose de vent).
That same year, at the age of 21, he founded the Dutch literary magazine: Blurb, whose first 4 issues he publishes alone from Paris. Then, other Dutch authors would contribute, among others: Hans Andreus, Armando, Hugo Claus, Jan Hanlo, W.F. Hermans and Hans Lodeizen. Blurb and another literary journal, Braak, are the initiators of the Vijftiger period, the authors of the 1950s.
Vinkenoog has experimented extensively with hallucinogenic drugs. After a first article on LSD in 1968 in the journal Bres, he participated regularly in this magazine.
In 2004 he was elected interim Poet of the Fatherland
