A Literary Journal for the North Pacific Rim
Cirque, published in Anchorage, Alaska, is a regional journal created to share the best writing in the region, with the rest of the world.
"Cirque is quite simply, a work of art-the kind of literary journal you will return to again and again. Evocative in its literary content, exquisitely designed, and exceptionally good."
~ Kathleen Tarr
"Cirque Literary Journal lives up to its name by being a superb arena for publishing some of the best writers of the North Pacific Rim. In addition to publishing well-respected writers such as David Wagoner, J.I. Kleinberg, Christianne Balk, Polly Buckingham, Eowyn Ivey and many others, Cirque encourages work from new and emerging artists. High caliber writing, stunning visuals and dynamic editorial staff, make Cirque a jewel of a journal that should not be missed." ~ Carey Taylor, M.A.
Cirque invites emerging and established writers living in the North Pacific Rim-Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Hawaii, Yukon Territory, Alberta, British Columbia and Chukotka-to submit short stories, poems, creative nonfiction, translations, plays, reviews of first books, interviews, photographs, and artwork for Cirque's Summer Solstice 2013 Issue.
