Editorial Focus

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!

Tips From the Editor

Circa accepts fiction, creative non-fiction, book reviews and articles on an historical theme. Short stories and creative non-fiction should not exceed 2500 words, reviews and articles should not exceed 800 words. As a Canadian journal, we have a special place in our heart for Canadian stories. Novel excerpts are welcome, but only if they can stand alone.
