What is Think?

Christine Yurick founded Think in the winter of 2008 as a journal of poetry, poetry criticism and fiction. In Fall 2013, the Graduate Program in Creative Writing at Western State Colorado State University acquired the journal. It is now housed in the Poetry Concentration.

What we look for:

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. We read work both from established and emerging poets. Please upload 3-5 poems on

We also publish book reviews and essays from the Critical Symposium on Poetry Criticism, which is held each summer at Western as part of our conference, Writing the Rockies.

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