Good. Short. Writing. The Anti-Languorous Project is an online open-access creative writing hub that publishes antilang., a magazine of literary brevity, soundbite, an audio collection of byte-sized readings, and the On Editing blog series. Show, don’t tell; imply and implicate. Antithesize languorous language.

This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.

We gratefully acknowledge the ongoing support of our followers on Patreon.


Allison McFarland & Jordan Bolay, Co-Founding Editors

The best part about being an editor is that your office can be just about anywhere.

Allie & Jordan (combined) have the “minimum 3 to 5 years editing experience (in both poetry and fiction)” that any reasonable employer would expect. Their library contains over 400 books (with very few duplicates). Allie writes novel(la)s, short fiction, and poetry; Jordan writes poetry, short fiction, and creative criticism. They operate across genres and read in a loosely choreographed dance (Jordan balters).
