THE FALL 2014 ISSUE
leads off with a pair of poems by Danez Smith and never loses momentum. Among the finds: a royal crown of sonnets by Fiona Chamness and new work by Michael Broek, Ashley Davidson, Brian Komei Dempster, Richie Hofmann, Mary Kane, Matthew Kelsey, Tanya Ko, Frannie Lindsay, Robert Lunday, Gerard Malanga, Jonathan Moody, Susan Tichy, and Emily Yong.

In Books in Print, Melissa Crowe reviews Emilia Phillips' Signaletics and Jamaal May's Hum. Zhang Xinying''s delightful "Year of the Rat, 2008" provided the cover image.

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.
