HOW TO SUBMIT TO CIRQUE

Cirque, published in Anchorage, Alaska, is a literary journal created to share the best writing and art of the North Pacific Rim with the rest of the world. Cirque is published twice yearly -- summer and winter -- with deadlines on the summer and winter equinoxes (March 21 and September 21). Cirque submissions are not restricted to a regional theme or setting.

Cirque is an independent journal staffed by volunteers.  Readers and contributors keep us in print through direct donations, subscriptions, purchases of single copies and by buying an ad.  This best deal ever offers a full page color ad for $100.  On the submission site, there is an opportunity to donate $5 - $100.  This is sure appreciated.  Your generousity saves us effort we can expend in publishing the journal.  

Cirque invites emerging and established writers living in Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Hawaii, Yukon Territory, Alberta, British Columbia and Chukotka — to submit short stories, poems, creative nonfiction, translations, plays, book reviews, interviews, photographs, and artwork to Cirque.

Cirque is a print journal but it is also published online.  See the current issue as well as all past issues at www.cirquejournal.com. When you publish in Cirque, your writing  or art can be found online, for many years into the future.
