A SmokeLong Summer — 2024

How time flies when you’re writing flash. In 2022, SmokeLong launched its first summer-long flash party, and it was an amazing event. So many flash narratives were born, sent out into the world, and published. We still get messages from participants almost every day excited about stories that have found their homes. Then we did it all over again in 2023. Webinars, author readings, panel discussions, open mics, and of course writing tasks three times a week, workshopping in small groups on our dedicated website, and community. Last summer was hot, and this summer looks like it’s going to be even hotter.

The official opening event for A SmokeLong Summer 24 is on June 1! Please register by May 31!


We’ve added a two-month virtual bookfair to our summer events this year! We’ll be talking to publishers all summer long, and we can’t wait.
