We are an online journal dedicated to historical fiction. We love vintage, we love retro and we love good writing!
What type of submissions are you looking for?
Circa accepts fiction, creative non-fiction and articles on an historical theme. Short stories and creative non-fiction should not exceed 2000 words, articles should not exceed 800 words. As a Canadian journal, we have a special place in our heart for Canadian stories.
To increase your chances of acceptance, remember Circa loves anything that provides a fresh take on history and resists cliche. We love genre-crossing, speculative and alternative history, too. Be original, bold and striking!
