The Hart House Review is an annual Canadian literary magazine published by Hart House and printed at Coach House Press.
The magazine was established in 1991. The HHR aims to publish new writing and visual art by emerging and established Canadian creators. We publish the Winter Supplement in December and the Review in April. As well as this, we print the winners of the annual Hart House Contests in Poetry and Fiction and the University of Toronto’s annual E. J. Pratt Prize in Poetry.
In 2012, HHR became open to the Canadian public after becoming a member of Magazines Canada and being distributed nationally thanks to the efforts of its then Editor-in-Chief, Kira Wronska Dorward.
The annual, student-produced journal ensures at least 70% of its content comes from University of Toronto contributors. Notable past contributors include Reza Baraheni, George Elliot Clarke, Lynn Crosbie, Howard Davies, Camilla Gibb, Nadine Gordimer, Sheila Heti, Jim Johnstone, Daniel MacIvor, Lee Maracle, Andrew McEwan, Rohinton Mistry, Albert F. Moritz, Simon Ortiz, John Reibetanz, Ray Robertson, Colm Tóibín, Priscilla Uppal, Myna Wallin, Kira Wronska Dorward, Carleton Wilson, Jacob Wren, and Rachel Zolf.
Past Editors-in-Chief include Alana Wilcox (1991-92), Jackie Linton (2010), Andre Babyn (2011), Kira Wronska Dorward (2012), and Clara Wells-Vershuchen (2014).
