Interested in joining the Headlight team? See our 2018-2019 Call for Editors


Headlight Anthology is a print literary journal that publishes poetry, short fiction, and visual art. Headlight evolves and innovates with every issue, as new writers and readers form a part of our discriminating editorial staff with each fresh cycle.

In 2018-2019, we will publish our 22nd issue of the journal. Canada’s mainstay writer and acclaimed 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, listed below. We encourage you to read Concordia’s full territorial acknowledgement, as well as its history and rationale, here.
