The SmokeLong Quarterly Award for Flash Fiction

Do you have what it takes to write the best flash fiction we’ve ever seen? There’s $1500 on the line during SmokeLong Quarterly‘s flash fiction competition award issue.

We will host a biennial all-contest issue during the even years (next contest issue will be held in 2020–check back here for details.)

For 15 weeks leading up the contest, we will accept only submissions for the SmokeLong Quarterly Award for Flash Fiction (the Smokey, if you will).

The winner will receive $1500, automatic nomination for The Best Small Fictions series, the Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net, and other awards, publication in our June 2020 contest issue, and our undying love and devotion. A second prize of $200 and a third prize of $100 plus publication will be awarded. The remaining finalists will also be published in the contest issue–and each of the finalists will receive $30.

Check back in early 2020 for contest details, submission guidelines, and other information.
