Hi! We're Allie & Jordan, co-founders of the Anti-Languorous Project, an online open-access literary hub. The ALP is home to antilang., a magazine of literary brevity, and soundbite, an audio collection of byte-sized readings. We love good short writing, regardless of form, genre, or style. We recently launched issue no. 1 on our website and are open to general submissions for issue no. 2, which we hope to launch in the fall.

Our primary goal with Patreon is to pay our contributing artists, both former and future, allowing us to support and promote emerging talent and put them into dialogue with established writers. We are a federally incorporated not-for-profit based in western Canada, and while our inaugural issue reflects the communities that shaped us as writers and editors we look forward to reading and hearing work from near and far. We are excited to expand our community and share our love for concise writing with you!

Thanks for supporting The ALP!

As a patron you will receive access to exclusive content, including sneak peeks of antilang. and early access to our On Editing blog series entries.

Digital Denizen
$2 or more per month 2 patrons
Thank you for supporting The ALP! While we love being an online magazine, we understand some people like to take their reading with them offline. So, in addition to the patron-only perks, as a Digital Denizen you will receive a high-res PDF file of each issue as it is released. 


You will also have the opportunity to participate in patron-only monthly writing contests, from which the best three entries will be featured on our blog. 

Bibliophile
$5 or more per month 1 patron
Thank you for supporting the ALP! While digital texts are great, there's something to be said about the smell and feel of a freshly bound book. In addition to receiving patron-only perks and PDFs of our online issues, Bibliophiles will receive a hard copy of our annual print issue (no. 2-3 expected early 2019).


Omnianaphile
$10 or more per month 4 patrons
Do you love antilang. and also love collecting curiosities? Then you're in luck! In addition to the above rewards, Omnianaphiles will receive an ALP swag bag with their annual print issue, including enviable items like our colourful pens and logo-bearing coffee mug (see our Instagram feed for examples).

Your swag bag will be distributed in January (when we launch our annual hardcopy)


Join the Bibliophile tier or higher before we launch no. 2 (expected fall 2018) and get a hard copy of no. 1 as well!

You are an unsung hero of concision! In addition to the above rewards, a couple months after joining this tier you will receive a chapbook produced by Allie and/or Jordan, signed and personally inscribed. Stick with us for the long haul and you'll receive a new chapbook with each hard copy of antilang.!

Goals
$72 of $180 per month
Our primary goal is to be able to pay the contributors who appear in antilang. magazine. This goal is based on 30+ contributors per issue x 3 issues per year x $20 per contributor. While this might not seem like much pay for the artists (it isn't), paid publications allow contributors to qualify for more and larger grants and bursaries.
