Think Journal

What isThink Journal?

Christine Yurick founded Think Journal in the winter of 2008 as a journal of poetry, poetry criticism and fiction. In Fall 2013, the MFA in Creative Writing at Western State Colorado State University acquired the journal. It is now housed in the MFA’s Poetry Concentration with an Emphasis on Versecraft.

What We're Looking For?

In keeping with its original mission, Think Journal 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 both from established and emerging poets. Please upload 3-5 poems on

The Journal:

We publish two issues per year: spring and fall. A yearly subscription is $15.
