Among the treats in the issue are a long poem by Michael Broek, "The Cloud and the Counterpane," new work by Jessica Jacobs, Peter Leight, Laura McCullough, and Liz Robbins, and Randi Ward's translations of the Faroese poet Tóroddur Poulsen. Ward's photographs from the Faroese whale hunt provide the cover images.
John Rosenwald's overview of the Split This Rock Festival in light of the revival of oral poetry concludes the issue.

POET'S FORUM
Randi Ward leads off July's blog with an introduction to the Faroese poet Tóroddur Poulsen and his latest book, Planks. Ward's translationsof two poems from the volume appear in the Summer 2014 issue of the BPJ.

Once in a while, I'll pick up a lit mag and read a great poem by someone I've never heard of. A poem that knocks me down and steals my shoes and makes me walk back to my own poor town over rocks and thorns. A poem that knocks the oomph out of my status quo. A poem I want to read to everybody. One that works and risks while it works. The Beloit Poetry Journal offers such poems.
