THE SPRING 2015 ISSUE
features Graham Barnhart's poems from the Iraq war, Daniel Tobin's voice retablos after paintings by Eleanor Spiess-Ferris (whose "Shoreline" provides the cover and the website image), plus work by Traci Brimhall, Éireann Lorsung, Travis Mossotti, Hera Naguib, Susannah Nevison, and more. In Books in Brief, John Rosenwald considers the "good poetry" of B. H. Fairchild's The Blue Buick and Kirun Kapur's Visiting Indira Gandhi's Palmist.

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.
