THE SPRING/SUMMER 2016 ISSUE,
This Barbed Heart: A Beloit Poetry Journal Chad Walsh Prize Anthology, features all the poems that have been awarded the Chad Walsh Poetry Prize since its advent in 1993, including work by Albert Goldbarth, Sherman Alexie, Lucia Perillo, Margaret Aho, Jessica Goodfellow, Karl Elder, Jenny Johnson, and Ocean Vuong. An essay by the editors, in which they reflect on the history of the award and introduce the work of current Chad Walsh winner Graham Barnhart, begins the volume.

The cover image is "Cocoon," by Carolyn Guinzio.



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.
