Well, hello again.
It’s November now.
It’s been getting colder.
Some snow has fallen already.
Ice forming under the wheel wells of parked cars.
But its a sunny day today.
Stay optimistic.
Here’s what’s happening here.

Holiday Get together

We would like to get together with you sometime next month.
We don’t know when
We think it would be nice if you told us when works for you
Because we would like to see you.
We’re here for you.
We were thinking
A casual night out with friends at McKibbins
If you can’t go to McKibbins, if you have enemies there.
It’s ok, we can pick somewhere else.
We just need to know.
And we’re putting together a Secret Santa so names are important.
Keep your eye on our Facebook for our upcoming poll
Or check in with one of us

CEVA (Committee for Equity and Visibility in the Academy)

CEVA is organizing Inclusivity/Anti-Oppression Pedagogical Training in early January
Open to anyone who teaches/is a TA
Keep an eye out for more details and make sure you attend
It’s always good to learn more about teaching
(And we get no other formal training)
We’re also working on a document with resource links
To help you teach your students mindfully
Which we hope to release on the SAGE website
In the New Year
E-mail Jen (jen.tracy@hotm​ or Alex (
To get involved


It is important that you know where you can go if you have an issue.
These things happen.
It’s good to know what you can do.
For instance,
Did you know that the Office of Rights and Responsibility
Can help you resolve problems conficentially or make a formal complaint?
And that you can have your work regraded if you make a named complaint?
Or that you should meet with the GSA advocacy centre first?
We’ve added this info and links to our resource page.


Headlight has its Call for Submissions​.
December 15th
Submit 3 poems or 2000 words of fiction or 3 visual art pieces.
We’re looking for editors as well.
