In 1952, to fill a publishing vacuum among Canadian magazines, The Fiddlehead was converted to an international magazine of poetry and issued in a printed format. Between 1952 and 1966, under Cogswell, it became a quarterly, added a book review section, undertook to publish prose fiction, and established a reputation for eclecticism. In 1967 the magazine became officially the property of UNB; editorial and managerial duties were subdivided among individuals connected with the university and, after a brief flirtation with monthly publication, the magazine continued as a quarterly with an expanded and improved format.
