Two-dimensional gauge theories with (0,2) supersymmetry admit a much broader, and more interesting, class of solutions than their better studied (2,2) counterparts. In this talk, we will explore some of the possibilities that are offered by this additional freedom. The moduli spaces we find can be interpreted as the target spaces for heterotic strings moving in backgrounds with non-trivial H-flux. A remarkable relationship between (0,2) gauge anomalies and H-flux will emerge.
