Living in Kaunas, Shkliar printed in 1920 correspondence in the Riga daily newspaper Segodnia (“Today”) and sent in 1921-1922 verses into the Liepaja daily newspaper Libavskoje russkoje slovo (“Liepaja Russian Word”). In 19231925 the Jewish daily newspaper Narodnaja misl’ (“People Thought”) published his verses, in the majority the occasional poems and the verses on the Jewish themes, also theatrical and other notes. In the illustrated weekly journal Nash ogoniok (“Our Flame”) Shkliar in 1924-1926 published poems most of all to the motives of Russian emigration, and also books reviews. Shkliar in 1924-1925 lived in Riga. After returning to Kaunas, Shkliar wrote article about Lithuanian poet Maironis for the newspaper Slovo (“Word”), poems and traveling notes for the newspaper Segodnia.
