Long-Winded Anthology

Long-Winded Anthology

Long-Winded is a multimedia anthology for the verbose, loquacious, and sesquipedalian. It’s about love, loss, longing, and whether or not being yourself makes you a monster; writing about writing; dreams for the future from the past; and talking fast enough to get out of trouble. It’s probably not a Fall Out Boy song title (yet).

We invite you to preorder a copy of Long-Winded. Ordering helps us offset the cost of printing. If we reach our goal of 50 preorders (print or digital), we’ll be able to include a custom sticker design!

Discounted preorders close June 15th at 11:59PM PT.

Copies can be ordered from the printer starting in July; a link will be shared on our socials when it becomes available. In the case of some international readers, our printer may not ship to your location. If you order through us now, we’re willing to get it to you no matter where you are in the world! (Shipping costs may vary.)

Welcome to Long-Winded (temporary title), a multimedia anthology for the verbose, loquacious, and sesquipedalian. In other words: chatty creators, this one’s for you!

We want works with titles of five words or longer. There is no strict theme for the content of your works, but if you’re looking for some inspiration for your starting point, we are especially excited by:

• musings on language
• wordplay
• visual poetry
• letters to someone, something, or a concept
• double meanings
• deconstructing a definition

Rights and Housekeeping

PWU’s editors may offer editorial suggestions and grammatical/proofreading edits prior to publication and/or request revisions if the work is not yet ready for publication. We claim non-exclusive one-time rights and non-exclusive archival rights, but the copyright of your work always remains yours. We may reach out to you about posting excerpts from your works with credit on our various social media platforms, but we will not post your work(s) without express prior permission.

Our anthologies—after initial marketing, launch, potential pre-order period, and sale—will remain for purchase at cover price on our platform of choice in perpetuity. Because this is not a paying anthology, and some production fees may be paid out-of-pocket by PWU staff, all proceeds from purchases of the anthology will go toward recouping printing costs, distribution costs, and future projects.
