Editors, Sandra Kleven and Michael Burwell not only publish a beautiful, inclusive journal, but they have created a Cirque community that is still as important to me today as it was when I first began publishing with them.
Poet friends, consider submitting your best work to Cirque. Lovers of poetry, consider purchasing a copy of this journal to help support this fine publication.
I am honored to have two poems in the most recent volume of Cirque, a Literary Journal for the North Pacific Rim. Check it out here: Cirque – Winter 2018. As usual, Editors Sandra Kleven and Michael Burwell have produced a stunning journal. This issue also includes a tribute to the late Seattle poet, Joan Swift, which I was lucky to have known. I hope in some small way this tribute written by myself and other poets who knew and loved her, helps expand her contribution to the world of poetry.
I am delighted to be included once again, in the summer Cirque reading tour. If you are in the Seattle or Portland area, I hope to see you as I will be reading at both events. Come out and help support this beautiful literary journal.
