THINK JOURNAL Now Accepts Email Submissions

THINK JOURNAL, logo with address
THINK JOURNAL is a quartely review of poetry, short stories, novel excerpts, and essays.

Submissions are welcome from rational thinkers who believe that words have meaning, and that when you deal with words, you are dealing with the mind. This journal is for those who Think. In order to do this, one must first have an I. The basic literary values that will be considered are: content and meaning; words that are logically conceived and arranged; evidence of an active imagination; structure; as well as the integration of emotional and intellectual facets. The central criterion for acceptance is merit, which will be judged based on two aspects: content and literary artistry.

"As the name might suggest, the poetry is formal, metered and carefully thought out, often dealing with classical or philosophical themes. The essays support the editorial stance. Yet the fiction (one story, one Chapter 1) is more slice-of-life."--Think Journal 1.1 Review in Iconoclast #101
