During his career, Larew guided US government food security programs. His most recent collection of poems, Patchy Ways, was released by CyberWit Press in 2023. His poems have appeared in recent issues of Poetry South, Iowa Review, Poetry Scotland’s Gallus, and Contemporary American Voices, and have been nominated for four national Pushcart awards. He’s received support from arts councils and food banks as well as the United Nations and Feed the Children for his Poetry X Hunger, an initiative that is bringing a world of poets to the anti-hunger cause. And, he founded the Voices of Woodlawn, a powerful program of poetry, music and art that explores America’s tragic history and legacy of slavery. Larew is a Courtesy Faculty at five US universities, is a former member of the Folger Shakespeare Library’s Poetry Board and serves as the poetry consultant to WBJC-FM classical radio in Baltimore, Maryland. He lives in Maryland, USA.
