This last month has been a whirlwind for just about everyone on the planet. In addition to dealing with the pandemic, changes to work situations, and social distancing, we at The ALP spent March running our first Kickstarter campaign. And we are thrilled to announce that because of our generous community that shared our posts… Continue reading On Kickstarter: We Made It!
"Along with the reference to famous people, every vignette in this collection also refers to food or drink. The dead, it seems, revel in coffee and sauerkraut, ice cream and whiskey, much like the living. The Skyscraper Queen herself indulges in lists of food until it seems she would burst. Food and drinks are sensuously described, but the consumption of them is the key element tying these stories together. The characters consume foods and drinks the way the Skyscraper Queen consumes their stories and identities (and, perhaps, the way readers consume details of the lives of famous celebrities)."
Hello antilangers! This is it‒the final push for our Kickstarter. We apologise for not updating as regularly about our progress, but have you heard what’s happening around the world? With COVID-19 impacting us all, especially with new-found financial hardships, we hate having to ask for your donations. In a perfect world, we would all have… Continue reading On Kickstarter: One Week Left!
Previously, we’ve explained how our rejection / acceptance process works a little differently from other lit mags (if you want to check it out, the post is aptly titled “On Why You Hear ‘Yes’ Before You Hear ‘No’”). Giving feedback to the majority of our submitters sets The ALP apart and is a point of… Continue reading On Rejections

Usually, we're talking about our community of readers and writers, but we know most people have multiple… Continue reading On Crises & Communities

Print Pricing
As each of the 3 themed issues that will appear in this print anthology featured guest editors, we thought it would be insightful to have their share their thoughts on the process of team editing, on The ALP's publishing philosophies, and on their favorite parts of the issues they helped curate. So in that spirit,… Continue reading Editor’s Reflection: Jesse Holth on Abrupt Environments
First off, huge kudos to our patrons on Patreon! Your ongoing support has helped us pay dozens of contributors who opted in for a cash payment while also keeping our website alive. Second, kudos to the 10 early adopters who have already pushed us more than a quarter of the way to our Kickstarter campaign… Continue reading On Supporting The ALP: Kickstarter Rewards
We're very excited to launch our first Kickstarter campaign in support of antilang. no. 4-6, our forthcoming annual print anthology. The anthology collects the three themed issues we published over the last year: Succinct Speculations, Pithy Politics, and (just launched yesterday!) Abrupt Environments. Our goal is to raise $1,500 to thank our contributors with hard… Continue reading Kickstart Our Art
