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!
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?

Originally, we had wanted to… Continue reading On Issue 6: Theme Change

Martin), or even awaiting the next publication of an amazing lit mag. Why can’t the writing come out sooner? Like, it’s just words. On a page. But,… Continue reading On Delays
Hi friends and followers. Today, we aren’t going to use our typical exclamation points or tell you how excited we are about antilang. no. 5 - Pithy Politics (like we had originally planned). We are shocked and abhorred to have found out on Twitter that one of our previous contributors lied about their identity in… Continue reading On Redactions

One of the biggest responses we've been getting since launching The ALP is "I love your lit mag! Where can I buy it?"
