Cirque, a journal for the North Pacific Rim, is accepting submissions for its next edition through Wednesday, September 21. The twice-a-year literary/arts journal was founded in 2009 and 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, book reviews, interviews, photographs and artwork for the winter issue. Submissions cover a wide range of topics and are not restricted to a regional theme or setting.
Paul Haeder, projects editor for Cirque, says,”In a time of chaos and nuclear brinkmanship, the arts especially count. No, poetry is not dead. No, creative writing is not only for English majors. Yes, art does count more in a time of plague, war, chaos.” He added that the recently published 170-page Summer Solstice issue, No. 24, includes Portland and Oregon writers and artists.
