We are now accepting submissions for our 2018-2019 issue! Please read our guidelines here and submit your poetry, fiction, or visual art by December 16, 2018.


Headlight Anthology is a print literary journal started by Joshua Knelman. We publish poetry, short fiction, and visual art.

In 2018-2019, we will publish our 22nd issue of the journal. Canada’s mainstay writer and publisher, rob mclennan, cites Headlight as one of “the rare student publications [he follows] regularly.”

Headlight has featured many established and emerging writers in its two decades as a publication—authors who have subsequently gone on to many publishing successes. Although we do our best to highlight Concordia’s ample literary talent, we also publish writers from the Montreal community and beyond.

We publish one issue per year, and the journal operates out of Concordia University’s graduate English Literature department, the students of which compose its staff.

Concordia University is located on unceded indigenous lands. We encourage you to read Concordia’s full territorial acknowledgement, as well as its history and rationale, here.
