New CIRQUE is out

The latest issue of the literary and arts journal Cirque was released on Christmas Day, “a few days past our Solstice deadline,” writes co-editor Sandra Kleven.

The issue includes a range of contributors from the obscure, some being published for the first time, to leading Alaska literary lights like Joan Townsend, Sheila Nickerson, Carolyn Kremers, Tanyo Ravicz and historian Ross Coen. Among the 88 writers and 23 visual artists are people living in 16 states, Canada and France — all with some connection to the North Pacific.

It can be read online and hard copies ordered ($16.95) at

Kleven’s co-editor, Michael Burwell, is keeping his hand in the project from his new address in Santa Fe, N.M., where he’s said to be working on his own poetry.
