The SmokeLong Flash Fellowship for Emerging Writers is Open for Applications!

See all News

The submission period for the SmokeLong Flash Fellowship for Emerging Writers is officially open. A few things are different this year. The first big change is that we’ve increased the award to $1000. The second: Writers previously published by SmokeLong Quarterly are now eligible for this year-long, virtual fellowship!

The winner of the fellowship publishes four stories with SmokeLong, one in each quarterly issue during their appointment. Fellows will work with SmokeLong staff, reading and commenting on stories in the SmokeLong queue, and participate in online writing workshops. We are searching for a writer who is passionate about workshopping their stories and working intensively with our staff for one year.

Writers 18 years or older who do not have a published chapbook or book-length work in any genre (or are not under contract for such) are eligible to apply.
