The Headlight Review: Book Reviews The Headlight Review Free

The Headlight Review seeks to publish critical reviews of fiction written by new and emerging authors. We prefer books published in small literary and university presses.

We will consider book reviews that can be found in our Books Received section from new and emerging writers, students, and faculty, as well as others looking to establish themselves in the literary fiction market.

The review must include the following information (please use the MLA Style Guide):

  • title and author of book reviewed

  • place and year of publication

  • number of pages

  • price of book

  • your relationship to the author, if any

  • book awards and nominations.

Manuscripts should be 750-1500 words in length, using industry formatting guidelines.

Simultaneous submissions accepted when noted in your cover letter. Good luck!
