About Headland

Headland is an online journal publishing quality short fiction and creative non-fiction. The journal gives voice to aspiring writers alongside established authors, from Aotearoa New Zealand and abroad. New Zealand is home to remarkable talent, and Headland aims to explore literary frontiers at home and abroad. As readers and writers, we hope that Headland takes you places you’ll want to revisit, and offers new perspective and territory to explore.

Headland is edited by volunteers and produced in partnership with Massey University's Creative Writing programme.
