A Round-Up of Our May 2019 Coverage!

The Aiming Circle is a patron-funded community of practice, serving writers of military-themed essays, analysis, literary and journalistic non-fiction, genre and literary fiction, poetry, and more.

For as little as $1 a month, our members receive exclusive early-bird notice of military-themed writing opportunities, events, and markets! They also receive access to our members-only assessments of prospective contests and publications. At higher membership tiers, writers also receive exclusive how-to and resources content, and access to a non-public Facebook group for cross-collaboration and -promotion with other members.
