Thank you to The Judge over at Irregular Features & Sidekick Books for giving Just Ignore The Beer Stains the video review treatment! Irregular Features reviews new collections of poetry as well as publishes feature articles & interviews on related subjects. The review, entitled Success Without Ambition, critically examines Just Ignore The Beer Stains from composition to construction, all with an insightful eye & humorous tongue. Throughout the video The Judge doesn’t mince words & fires straight from the hip, toasting my glass & kicking me in the balls at the same time. Now’s time to dress my wounds, grit through the bruises & pound the keys harder than before!

Join Epic Rites Press Editor Wolfgang Carstens for the Astro 2000 Reading Series! In this installation, Wolfgang reads selected poetry from my chapbook Lowlifes, Fast Times & Occasionally Love which is available now from Erbacce Press. Carstens brings explosive energy to these poems speaking with passion & conviction, so buckle up & crank the volume as the madman Wolfgang Carstens reads Lawrence Gladeview!
The August print issue of Children, Churches, & Daddies is now available and features my poem, At The Gate. The magazine is a 5.5″ x 8.5″ perfect bound book with black and white pages featuring poetry, prose, fiction, and art. A really radical bonus with the release of the edition is a video of editor Janet Kuypers reading my poem from the issue at The Cafe in Chicago.
