Ticking clock

Welcome to Circa! We are an online journal dedicated to short historical fiction.  We love vintage, we love retro, and we love great writing.

Check out some of our recent issues, featuring short stories and flash fiction set in that “foreign country”: the past. Or get insight into the process of researching and writing historical fiction by reading one of our author interviews. Grab yourself a cup of tea, a quiet corner, and enjoy journeying through the centuries. We’re so glad you’re here.

Circa is published biannually, in April and October, and is archived on this site.  It is edited by Jennifer Falkner.
