History

Founded in 1987 by Sherwood Smith and Lynn Maudlin, The Mythic Circle started as a quarterly ’zine designed to function as a writers’ workshop in print and featured a very active letters column. After several years the enthusiastic submissions of aspiring writers and the challenge of publishing on a quarterly schedule took their toll, and the ’zine finally became an annual publication.

We published our latest issue, The Mythic Circle 35, in July 2013. Details »
