Best of the Net Nominations!

August 17, 2020

I’ve said this before, so bear with me if you are a frequent guest here at SmokeLong. We love nominating our contributors for awards. We’re always looking for ways to give the writers we publish something extra. Beginning with this Best of the Net Nomination, we will be nominating creative non-fiction alongside our fiction nominations. If you haven’t been here in a while, maybe you’ve missed some subtle changes. We are now open for creative non-fiction narratives.

Our Best of the Net nominations for 2020


“Liquid History” by Elisabeth Ingram Wallace

“To Pieces” by Abby Feden

Creative Non-Fiction

“All Your Fragile History” by Jasmine Sawers

Congratulations to these talented writers!
