Think's first issue appeared in 2008 under the leadership of founding editor/publisher Christine Yurick. In 2013, Western State Colorado University acquired the journal. It is now housed at Western and is loosely affiliated with Western's MFA in Poetry with an Emphasis on Versecraft. In keeping with its original mission, Think publishes poems that emphasize craft as well as content. We are looking for metered, rhymed poems, in received or nonce forms, or free verse with a clear organizing principle, emphasizing the devices of poetry. We are delighted to read work from both established and emerging poets.
All text submissions should use 12-point Times New Roman font.
Poetry should be in the line format (including indentations) in which the poet wishes it to appear in publication.
Persons interested in contributing to the magazine must submit their own original work.
Pieces that have been previously published in other periodicals will not be eligible for publication.
Copyrights for submitted and published work will remain in the possession of the author. By submitting a piece, the author grants Think permission to publish the work, and reprint it in future editions or anthologies of work published in the magazine. Unfortunately, at the present time we are unable to remunerate authors for their work; however, we do send a sample printed issue to published authors.
Please include a bio in your cover letter that we can use in our contributor notes if your piece is selected for publication.
