Circle began publishing Circle Network News in 1978 to serve its Network. It was published in tabloid newspaper format until the Winter 97/98 issue. Beginning with the Spring 1998 issue, it was published in magazine format. As of the Fall 1999 issue, the name of Circle Network News was changed to CIRCLE Magazine. CIRCLE Magazine is a 72 page magazine published quarterly, with each issue dedicated to a particular theme and filled with a variety of articles, rituals, meditations, illustrations, invocations, contacts, news, photos, herbal formulas, reviews, magical development exercises, chants, advertisements, and other material.
CIRCLE Magazine goes to several thousand Circle Network subscribers individuals, groups, and resource centers. In addition, it is distributed through a large number of distributors, bookstores, and centers, and is in many libraries. Readership is estimated at 10,000. Most of the readers are in the USA, but there are also readers in Canada, Australia, Japan, and a variety of other countries in Europe, Africa, and elsewhere. Based on feedback we have received from past advertisers, some ads in CIRCLE Magazine have generated more response than similar ads run in other Pagan publications.
