EXTENDED — CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS 2016-2017

HEADLIGHT ANTHOLOGY CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS 2016-2017

**** DEADLINE EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 25 *****

Headlight Anthology is an annual journal published by graduate students in the English Department of Concordia University. Now in its twentieth year, Headlight continues to publish the best in contemporary creative writing, both from Concordia students and across the greater Montreal community. The anthology publishes poetry, short fiction, drama, creative non-fiction, as well as photography and mixed media. Our mandate is to publish new and exciting voices, strengthen our local emerging community of writers, and represent Concordia University and Montreal within the Canadian writing and publishing scene.

We are now accepting submissions for Headlight Anthology’s twentieth edition. We invite writers to explore and interpret this year’s theme of 20/20.

20/20 is when things come into focus, perfectly, like 20/20 vision, or the adage that “hindsight is 20/20.” 20/20 is also a fraction, a perfect 1/1 and 10/10, and can be endlessly divided and multiplied. It’s also a sign of success, a perfect 100%. On the flipside, it’s a sign of testing, of evaluation; something that can motivate us or discourage us. It’s also an age, a time that is for many a bridge between our bildungsroman coming-of-age era and the dawn of early adulthood. A “score” is the term used for a group of 20, and is used to connote many–as in “scores of submissions to the journal.” 20 is the basis for vigesimal number systems. We could go on, but we want to hear what 20/20 means to you.

You can submit:

Fiction (up to 2000 words)

Poetry (3 poems or up to 3 pages)

Non-fiction (up to 2000 words)

Visual Art (up to 3 images)

Email submissions to headlightanthology@gmail.com

Written submissions should be in .doc or .docx format, and visual submissions should be high resolution .png format.

Please ensure that your name does not appear anywhere on the manuscript.

Deadline: December 25, 2016.
