The Anti-Languorous Project Logo
U of S MFA in Writing student Allison McFarland, along with U of Calgary doctoral student Jordan Bolay are shaking up the Prairie lit mag scene! They've started up the Anti-Languorous Project, home of antilang., a magazine of literary brevity with a mandate of "Good. Short. Writing."
Allison is working on a fiction Master's thesis at U of S and Jordan, originally from Saskatchewan and a graduate of the U of S (BA '12, MA '13), is currently working on his dissertation on the social politics of Western Canadian writers at the University of Calgary.
Literary magazines have long been the backbone of Canadian literature, a vital place for writers to get their start and disseminate their work. U of S students are active in this cultural work. English students at the U of S have produced The Fieldstone Review for some time now. MFA in Writing graduate Nicole Haldoupis (MA '16) is a founder of the lit mag untethered. She now works as Editor at Grain Magazine where another MFA grad, dee Hobsbawn-Smith (MA '14), works as Associate Poetry Editor.
We congratulate Allison and Jordan on this achievement!
