I am very happy & honored to share that my micro poetry collection, Small Towns, Big Mouths, is the featured collection on the Australian literary website Bold Monkey. Small Towns, Big Mouths is a poetry collection consisting of six previously published poems that were first printed in publications from PigeonBike Press, Mad Rush Quarterly, and Every Reason Magazine. From editor George Anderson of Bold Monkey: “Gladeview is a minimalistic American poet who uses personal anecdotes to make sometimes joyful, sometimes wry comments about life.” Accompanying the presentation of Small Towns, Big Mouths are two digital broadsides featuring poems from the collection. Take a trip Down Under & get familiar with the characters in my micro poetry showcase, Small Towns, Big Mouths!
The inaugural issue of Carnival Literary Magazine is now live and I am honored to have a poem featured in this wonderful collection. This issue boasts a must read line-up including poets Gerald Locklin, RL Raymond, John Yamrus, and Dorothea Grossman among other talented writers and artists!

The inaugural Spring 2011 Volume I of The Adroit Journal is available now and features four of my poems; a true pleasure to be alongside such talented poets as Lyn Lifshin, Wendy Baker, and Jay Leeming among others. The journal is available as a PDF download with a suggested donation of ten dollars to Free The Children, a charity that works to improve the educational standards of underprivileged kids. Thanks for reading and above all, supporting literature for the humanities.
